In Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, where the civil war between the army and the Rapid Support Forces (HDK) has been going on since mid-April, 34 people lost their lives as a result of an artillery shell hitting the market place.
According to reports in the national media, an artillery shell hit a market in the Kerari district of Omdurman, west of the capital, during the clashes between the two military forces. In the incident, 34 civilians lost their lives and many people were injured.
Yesterday, 15 people lost their lives when artillery shells hit houses in the capital Khartoum.
In the civil war in Sudan, which has entered its 7th month, the parties continue to clash with heavy weapons in 9 states in the west and southwest of the country, as well as in the capital Khartoum. HDK, which the Sudanese government called on the international community to accept as a “terrorist group”, was a military force whose integration into the system had not yet been completed before the civil war that broke out on April 15.
According to the United Nations, nearly 6 million people have been displaced from their homes due to conflicts in the region. In the conflicts, more than 10 thousand civilians lost their lives and 25 million Sudanese became in need of humanitarian aid.
The negotiations, which started on October 29 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, under the mediation of Saudi Arabia and the USA, have not yielded any results yet. (AA)
