In a statement released on Thursday by the Resistance Committees of El Fasher, it is said that the city was the victim of a heavy artillery bombardment by the RSF, which concentrated on the southern and western part of the city, the livestock market, the fruit and vegetable market and the Al Radeef neighborhood.

According to Sudanese news portal Sudan Tribune, another 30 people were injured.

These indiscriminate attacks against civilians in El Fasher are part of the desperate attempts by the so-called Rapid Support Forces (RSF) to gain control of the city, which until now has been dominated by the army.

In these actions, the RSF has attacked hospitals, residential areas and religious temples with artillery.

The clashes between the army and the paramilitaries for control of El Facher, which have lasted for two months, have already caused thousands of deaths, injuries and displaced people, as well as a serious threat of famine and epidemics among the civilian population. Added to the fighting are ethnic clashes for control of land and livestock that have been looted in the state of North Darfur.

Since mid-April last year, the African nation has been mired in an internal war, after power disputes flared between army chief Abdel Fatah al-Burhan and the leader of the RSF paramilitary group, Mohamed Hamdan Daglo.

In Sudan, where a military coup took place in 2019 and another in 2021, a conflict broke out in which thousands of civilians died, including some 15,000 in the West Darfur region alone.
