9 killed in RSF paramilitary group’s strike on Sudan’s medical center

Date:

Nine civilians have been killed and 15 more have been wounded as a result of a strike on a medical center at a mosque in Khartoum Bahri, a city to the north of Khartoum, by the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) paramilitary group, Sudanese armed forces spokesman Nabil Abdallah said Wednesday.

“The dissolved rebel Rapid Support Forces have shelled a medical center at a mosque in Bahri, having killed nine civilians and injured 15 others,” Abdallah said.

The paramilitary group has yet to make an official statement on the shelling.

On April 15, violent clashes broke out between the Sudanese army and the RSF. Paramilitary commander Gen. Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo accused Abdel Fattah Burhan, the head of the Sudanese sovereignty council and commander of the armed forces, of being reluctant to hand over power to the civilian government. The parties to the conflict have since introduced a number of temporary nationwide ceasefires, but none has helped settle the conflict.

The UN estimates the death toll from the conflict in the hundreds, while the Red Cross has warned that extended hostilities risk crumbling the country’s healthcare system.
