El-Fasher — Winter crops' farmers in the locality of El-Fasher, North Darfur, have been suffering "fierce attacks by camel herders" in the last days that include beating and looting.
According to them, herders are armed by the government.
One of the victims told Radio Dabanga on Tuesday that alleged perpetrators force their camels onto plantations for grazing.
This leads the workers to suffer huge losses of different kinds of crops. As a result, about 800 farmers may be probed by their banks, as they lent 250 pounds each to partially fund their winter crops.
The affected areas are Goz Bena, Hillat Faki Ali and Arab Bashir.
Farmers urged authorities to intervene and protect them and their lands.
