Over 100 Killed by RSF Fighters in Attack on Sudanese Village

HeadlineJun 07, 2024

In Sudan, over 100 people, including dozens of children, were killed after Rapid Support Forces fighters stormed a village in the al-Gezira state Wednesday, indiscriminately firing at civilians. Survivors of the massacre described the carnage, saying over 40 armed RSF vehicles raided the village of Wad al-Nour, unleashing heavy weaponry. The RSF has claimed it was targeting the Sudanese army, but village residents say there is no military presence in the region. The U.N. has condemned the attack, while the International Organization for Migration warns the number of displaced people over the intensifying conflict in Sudan could soon reach 10 million. This comes as the EU is expected to impose sanctions on six members of the Sudanese military and the RSF over accusations of war crimes as both sides fight for control of Sudan’s Darfur region.
