Sudan: Death, Destruction From Air Raids On Dilling in Sudan

Dilling — The Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) claims that the Sudanese Air Force's aerial bombardments of Dilling locality in South Kordofan have resulted in the injury of two persons, the killing of livestock, as well as the destruction of a number of farms and a mosque.

Arnu Ngutulu Lodi, the spokesman for SPLM-N claimed that the areas of Manadil, Kujuria, Umm Doreen, and Umm Sardaba have been subjected to heavy bombardments by Antonov and Sukhoi aircrafts as well as to shelling by long-distance atrillery on Friday and Saturday.

This resulted in the injury of an adult and a child, the destruction of farms, a mosque in Kujuria, and the death of a large number of livestock. The bombardment also caused terror and panic among the citizens, especially the children.

Lodi also stressed the SPLM-N's commitment to cessation of hostilities, which was unilaterally announced by the Movement despite the Khartoum regime's repeated attacks.
