The Doctors Syndicate said in a statement early Monday that at least 97 civilians have been killed and hundreds more injured since clashes erupted in Sudan.
Shortly before that, the World Health Organization announced that at least 83 people had been killed and more than 1,126 wounded in Sudan since the outbreak of fighting between the army and the Rapid Support Forces. The organization said in a statement that the medical supplies it distributed to health facilities before the recent escalation between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces have been depleted.
Simultaneously, the Sudanese Central Committee of Physicians announced, in an urgent notice, the fall of a stray “Dana” in Bashair University Hospital, south of Khartoum, and it created a state of terror and panic for the patients and the working medical staff. She added, “We thank God that all patients and health personnel are well and in complete health, and we affirm that hospitals have their sanctity and sanctity stipulated in human customs and values. We reiterate our appeal to all forces to put aside their weapons, resort to peaceful solutions, and spare the country the danger of division and destruction.”
On Sunday, the Sudan Doctors Syndicate announced that the death toll had risen to 56, while the number of injured had reached about 600.
The Preliminary Committee of the Sudan Doctors Syndicate appealed to humanitarian organizations and international and regional health bodies to provide assistance and provide medical supplies to all hospitals and health facilities in Khartoum and areas of clashes in the various states.
It also urged the international community, human rights and diplomatic organizations to put pressure on both sides of the armed conflict to stop the fighting, provide safe passages for civilians, allow the safe passage of ambulances and medical personnel, and provide the necessary insurance for health facilities and hospitals.
She said yesterday that it is difficult for paramedics and patients to reach hospitals, and called on the army and the Rapid Support Forces to provide safe passages. And she added in a statement: “We call for the predominance of the voice of reason and the immediate cessation of absurd shooting, which claimed the lives of innocent, unarmed civilians, and safe passages must be opened to evacuate the detainees, the stranded, and the injured for first aid.”
Clashes continued on Monday morning between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces in the capital, Khartoum, and other parts of the country.
This coincided with moves by regional powers to urge the two sides to reach a cease-fire, amid warnings from Sudanese civil forces that the war would “tear the country apart and make it lose its unity and sovereignty.”
