Since Saturday, April 15, clashes have erupted between the Sudanese Army and the Rapid Support Forces, which resulted in the killing of nearly 200 civilians.
The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors confirmed that “the latest numbers of deaths are increasing in both the capital and the states due to the ongoing clashes between the Rapid Support Forces and the armed forces, which continue for the fifth day in a row.”
It added, “since the beginning of the clashes, the numbers of deaths among civilians have risen to 198, and 1,207 injuries.”
The committee pointed out that “there are a number of injuries and deaths that have not been included in the report as it was unable to reach hospitals due to the difficulty of movement and the security situation in the country.”
The United Nations envoy to Sudan, Volker Berthes, announced on Monday that more than 180 people were killed during the armed clashes between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces.
Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK had recently called on the conflicting parties in Sudan to immediately stop the ongoing clashes and to reach a peaceful solution through a comprehensive national dialogue. It also called on the UN Security Council to take immediate action and call for a ceasefire to save the innocent lives at risk.
