Khartoum: AlTaghyeer

The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors (independent union) announced on Sunday that dozens of participants in the “mothers and fathers” mass demonstrations were injured as a result of security forces repression.

The coup forces continued their violations by attacking the February 26 convoy, which consisted of mostly elderly men and women.

The committee counted 34 injuries, including 5 as a result of severe beatings with batons, one of which led to a fractured skull.

2 of the participants were directly hit by tear gas canisters in the head, and 10 others were hit by sound bombs.

There was also an instance of a protester being run-over by military vehicles in the city of Khartoum, which led to his injury.

On February 26, the Sudanese marched in a mass procession on Al-Sit’teen Street to announce support for fathers and mothers of the revolution, and to condemn violence against defenseless youth.

83 martyrs have met their demise since the dawn of the coup in the demonstrations that swept across Sudan’s various cities.
