RSF condemns deadly Sudan army airstrikes on civilians

Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces on Sunday accused the Sudanese army (SAF) of continuing their campaign of violence against civilians, with reports of aerial bombings causing devastation in the region of Moreikib, located west of Obeid city in North Kordofan State.

The attack, which occurred on Saturday, resulted in the loss of 27 lives and left over 40 individuals wounded, including women and children, RSF said.

Additionally, numerous livestock perished, and essential community infrastructure, including Quran schools, lay in ruins.

The SAF’s alleged targeting of residential areas with indiscriminate barrel bombs represents a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and the principles outlined in the Geneva Conventions.

These actions underscore the military’s apparent disregard for human life, suggesting a disturbing escalation in tactics as it faces setbacks on the battlefield, RSF says.

Sudan has been mired by fighting between the army, led by Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who is the head of the ruling Sovereign Council, and the RSF.

At least 13,900 people have been killed and more than eight million displaced in the conflict that started in April 2023, according to UN figures.

Several cease-fire agreements brokered by Saudi Arabia and US mediators have failed to end the violence.
