Sudan: Renewed Aerial Bombings in East Jebel Marra

East Jebel Marra — According to witnesses, the Sudanese air force carried out renewed aerial bombings in East Jebel Marra, North Darfur on Monday, 1 October. No reports of casualties have been confirmed yet.

According to onlookers, the region of Kira, located about 15km west of Tabit, near East Jebel Marra, was hit by the recent shelling. They reported that two MiG airplanes bombed the area at about 5:30pm, and that three huts got burned.

Although no casualties were reported, residents said the bombings provoked much fear amongst them, who fled to farms and valleys seeking shelter.

Citizens from East Jebel Marra appealed to the international community to pressure the Sudanese government to stop bombing its own citizens.
