East Jebel Marra — The Sudanese government launched three air strikes in the region of East Jebel Marra, North Darfur, killing a 12-year old child on Sunday, onlookers affirm.
The victim is called Hammouda Hamdan Saleh, witnesses told Radio Dabanga. They added that livestock were also killed and large farm areas were burnt as a result of the bombings.
A witness said the shelling took place between 8:00am and 10:00am on Sunday, hitting the semi-deserted areas of Dolma, Sharafa, Jenq, and Dar Bosh.
Very few people and their livestock still occupy these areas, called Furqaan, as the rest of the population fled their homes because of government bombardments, a source explained.
