193 citizens were injured during a crackdown by the Sudanese security forces on peaceful demonstrations that swept the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, on Monday, calling for “full civilian rule”.
Central Committee of Sudan Doctors (CCSD) published a statement saying that they documented “(12) cases of injuries from live bullets, and (4) cases of injuries from pellet like projectiles fired by a weapon that is yet to be determined (possibly a shotgun).
The statement added that injuries occurred in three cities with “a total of (133) injury cases reported in Khartoum, 33 other injuries in Bahri, and 27 injuries in Omdurman.”
According to the CCDS, since the eruption of demonstrations last October, 79 demonstrators have been killed, amid lack of official statistic on the numbers of victims of the demonstrations.
Since last October 25, Sudan has been experiencing a hard time, following the declaration of the state of emergency by the Commander-in-Chief of the Sudanese Army, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, who also dissolved the Sovereignty Councils and transitional ministers, and dismissed MPs, following the arrest of party leaders, ministers and officials, in response for the ongoing protests rejecting these measures, as a “military coup.”
