Over 35 people killed in Sudan’s protest site: CCSD


June 3, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s militia crackdown on the sit-inners at the protest site outside the army headquarters killed at least 35 people, according to The Central Committee of Sudan Doctors (CCSD).

"The number of martyrs of the army headquarters massacre committed by the Transitional Military Council today rose to more than 35," reads a statement released by the CCSD on Monday evening.

The medical group, which is part of the opposition SPA, added that it was difficult to get the exact actual number of victims because Rapid Support Forces (RSF) militiamen and police forces surrounded the hospitals where the wounded are treated.

"There are also a large number of martyrs who were taken by the RSF and thrown in the Nile, according to the testimonies of doctors and injured," said the statement.

The Sudanese authorities didn’t issue a statement about the number of the victims.

Amnesty International Monday called on the international community to consider all forms of peaceful pressure, including targeted sanctions, on members of the Sudanese transitional council responsible for the violent attack on sleeping protestors.

The organization, also, called for an immediate end to the violent attacks by the Rapid Support Forces and other security forces against protestors and for those responsible for the brutal attacks to be held accountable.

        Again, peaceful demonstrations are for civilized nations, Sudan is still reeling at the verge of savagery and any demonstrations is just stupid. But our jellaba friends have no bushes to carry out protracted guerilla warfare. The kiirminal wants war in SS, we go for it. It is either them or us, there´s no middle ground.

          Hemitti is cmdr of the Rapid Support Forces known to crack on Darfuri rebels. Hemitti was just an ordinary jellaba retailing on cheap clothes purchased from Libya and sold in W. Sudan. Once robbed by Darfuri rebels he swore to fight them. He recruited his brigands, freebooters, gangsters and were armed by Bashir. The rest is terror, rape, killing in Darfur.

    South Sudan has no experience to sell to Sudan on how to handle such protests for your information. You are suffering from the disease called Kiirmafia

      Have you forgotten all the massacres in South Sudan,..e.g.Juba and many other towns/villages in the country, under overall command of Kiir?If so, then you must either be a pathetic nyagat,who himself is suffering from total amnesia,shock conditions,etc or you are one of those confused fucking jienges.Check up some references and flash up your weak mind, idiot!
