Sudan’s RSF says hundreds of civilians killed by Burhan’s forces

Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces (RSF) on Saturday accused al-Burhan’s forces of carrying out air strikes against civilians in North Darfur, killing 8, including three women and a child, and injuring a large number of people.

The relentless brutality of al-Burhan’s forces persists, with recent bombings in el-Jazeera State, where 9 civilians were killed and western Wad Madani where at least 20 civilians were killed by relentless army bombing, RSF said.

The city of el Fasher continued to be subjected to continuous aerial bombardment by al-Burhan’s forces, resulting in the killing and displacement of innocent citizens, RSF added.

Over the past week, the forces under Burhan’s command have inflicted widespread destruction in various regions, resulting in catastrophic outcomes. In the Kandahar market, located west of Omdurman, air strikes claimed the lives of 360 civilians, RSF added.

“The violations committed by the Burhan militia and the extremist terrorist remnants of the former regime against innocent civilians among our people amount to genocide,” RSF said.

Sudan has been mired by fighting between the army, led by 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.
