CAIRO: At least 100 people were killed in clashes that broke out last month between armed fighters in a city in Sudan’s restive Darfur region, according to the Sudanese Doctors Syndicate.
In a statement posted on its official Facebook page late Sunday, the Doctors Syndicate added that hospitals are still out of service in the city of Geneina in Darfur, and it is still difficult to make an accurate count of the wounded.
The fighting in Geneina, which broke out just days after two rival generals of Sudan took up arms against each other in Khartoum, signaled the possibility that the conflict in the capital could spill over into other parts of the East African country.
At least 481 civilians were killed in Khartoum clashes Which broke out in mid-April between the army, led by Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Burhan, and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, led by Lieutenant General Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, according to the doctors’ statement. The number of wounded civilians jumped to more than 2,560.
