Dead and Wounded as a Result of the Exchange of Shelling Between the Army and the Rapid Support North of Khartoum

At least five people were killed among eight injured after renewed artillery shelling between army and rapid support forces in the Shambat area in the city of Bahri, north of the Sudanese capital Khartoum.

In a press statement, the Shambat Committees Alliance mourned four citizens of the region, saying they were martyred as a result of shelling and Danat, while local sources said 8 people were injured and five of them died until Friday evening.

Since the outbreak of conflict between the army and the Rapid Support in the capital Khartoum and other areas on April 15, unarmed civilians have found themselves in the middle of mutual bombardment that does not distinguish between homes and other buildings, or between small and large, and the conflict has forced about 7 million people to leave their homes, flee inside Sudan and seek refuge in neighboring countries.

While more than 9,000 civilians were killed in addition to thousands of wounded, in addition to the killing and injury of thousands of military personnel, in addition to the financial losses and serious damage caused to public and private institutions, and the many tragedies resulting from the mutual bombing between the two parties.

The Shambat Committees Alliance said Friday’s martyrs were “Maryam Hassan Ali al-Ahmar, Alish Haidar Zain al-Abidin, Muhammad Nizar Qesm Allah and the grandson of Sayed Ahmed Abu Zeid (son of his daughter).”

According to eyewitnesses and local sources in the area, Dana fell on Friday morning inside Shambat Al-Gharbia, and injured 8 citizens who were on the main street, where 5 of them died, while the three are in serious condition at the International Hospital.

The Committee to resist the extension of Shambat lands announced yesterday, the collapse and destruction of the house of a citizen named Ahmed Imad (Tiko) along Shambat lands in Block 5 due to heavy artillery and mutual shelling between the army and the rapid support without causing loss of life.

Neither the army nor the RSF has achieved significant field superiority since the outbreak of the war, while all cities in the capital, Khartoum, Bahri and Omdurman, witness clashes on an almost daily basis.
