Un Denounces Rsf Paramilitary Action In Sudan That Claimed At Least 100 Lives

UN humanitarians issued a warning on Friday, June 7, about the horrific violence and hunger that still threaten the people of Sudan. They also shared the UN Secretary-General’s criticism of an attack that left over 100 people dead in a community south of Khartoum.

The chief of mission of the UN migration agency (IOM) in the nation, Mohamed Refaat, briefed journalists in Geneva from Port Sudan on Wednesday, highlighting “truly horrifying reports of violent attacks and casualties” in the village of Wad Al-Noura in the state of Aj Jazirah.

UN leader António Guterres and UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) head Catherine Russell denounced the attack, which was purportedly carried out by the RSF and is thought to have murdered over 100 people, including at least 35 children.

Around 800,000 civilians are still in risk at another crisis flashpoint in El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur in western Sudan, as combat between the opposing Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) has intensified.

According to Mr. Refaat, the place is “inaccessible” to the UN, both cross-live and cross-border. He urged all concerned parties to allow unhindered relief supplies to reach the region “through all available routes” and emphasized that the cost of fuel and water has “skyrocketed,” rendering necessities unaffordable.
