On Tuesday, 98 Sudanese civilians were injured in Sudanese police attacks on demonstrations calling for the restoration of civilian rule in the country, according to the statistics of the Sudan Doctors Committee.
According to eyewitnesses, Sudanese police forces fired tear gas canisters to disperse the protesters who were located in front of the presidential palace in the capital.
The Sudanese Doctors Committee made a statement saying that “the number of injured in the demonstrations of Tuesday in Khartoum reached 98, including 6 injuries from sound bombs, and 15 from tear gas canisters,” adding that “documentation of other injuries in other states it did not mention, is underway”.
The death toll of civilians killed in protests since October 25 has reached 43 people
The Sudanese Doctors Committee announced that the death toll from the Sudan protests since October 25 has risen to 43, after a protester died of his wounds last Thursday.
Since last October 25, Sudan has been experiencing a serious crisis, as the Commander-in-Chief of the Sudanese Army, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, declared a state of emergency, dissolved the Sovereignty Councils and transitional ministers, and dismissed governors, following the arrest of party leaders, ministers and officials, while protests erupted and continued in rejection of these measures, which they considered a “military coup.”
On Thursday, November 25, Al-Burhan formed a new Transitional Sovereignty Council, from which he excluded four representatives of the Forces of Freedom and Change, and the Civil Alliance emanating from the uprising that toppled Omar Al-Bashir in 2019.
The protests continue despite Al-Burhan and Hamdok’s announcement of signing a new agreement on November 21, stipulating Hamdok’s return to his post, a month after his dismissal, and the formation of a government of competencies, with no party affiliation.
Since the overthrow of Al-Bashir, all opinion-makers, journalists, human rights defenders and others who criticise the Sudanese authorities are at risk of arrest, threats and harassment.
