Saraf Omra — Displaced persons from Saraf Omra camps in North Darfur have complained about the high level of insecurity in the area due to the continuous attacks executed by pro-government militias, they told Radio Dabanga on Friday, 16 November.
Residents from the Naseem, Dankoj and Jebel camps affirmed that pro-government militias carry out armed robberies and fire random shots targeting the camps.
A camps activist told Radio Dabanga that security is lacking in the area, stressing that the lives and properties of local residents are constantly under threat.
In addition, pro-government militias 'systematically loot the displaced who own motorcycles', he continued.
The activist cited the example of the displaced Abdul Aziz Mohamed, who had his motorcycle stolen at gunpoint in front of security forces as he was leaving the Saraf Omra market on Monday. The forces, the source explained, did not do anything to protect the victim.
