Sudanese Army Bombs Villages - Plunders Another in Darfur's East Jebel Marra

East Jebel Marra — East Jebel Marra witnessed this weekend aerial bombardments as well as the looting of Kenjara village by Sudanese army troops.

Multiple sources from East Jebel Marra told Radio Dabanga that their region and the area north of Tabit were bombed on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday afternoon the Sudanese Air Force targeted the areas of Kadareik and Um Laouta, located 3km north of Tabit, with four bombs. 16 donkeys were killed.

No casualties were recorded after the aerial bombardments on Sunday afternoon on Khartoum Jadeed and Taradona.

The sources also reported that Sudanese army forces on Saturday moved from Khazan Tunjur towards El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur. When they passed at Kenjara village, they started searching the place house by house. They beat the villagers, severely wounding Adam Yahya Saleh (12) and Haroun Ismail Adam (17).

The army troops, who were riding in 70 vehicles, also robbed the villagers of their property, their crops, and even their clothes, after accusing them of supporting the armed insurgency, the sources added.
