Un condemns deadly paramilitary attack on sudanese village.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has issued a strong condemnation of a paramilitary assault on a village in Sudan, which resulted in the reported deaths of over 100 civilians. The attack, carried out by the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) on Wad al-Noura village in al-Jazira state, has sparked outrage and calls for immediate action to protect civilians caught in the crossfire of Sudan’s ongoing conflict.

According to the pro-democracy group Madani Resistance Committee, the RSF launched the assault on Wad al-Noura using heavy artillery, exacerbating the already dire humanitarian situation in the region. The Secretary-General’s spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, emphasized the severity of the attack in a statement, urging all parties involved in Sudan’s war to refrain from actions that endanger civilian lives.

The conflict in Sudan has pitted the regular army, led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, against the RSF forces, formerly under the command of his deputy, General Mohamed Hamdan Daglo. This internal strife has resulted in widespread suffering among the Sudanese population, with civilians bearing the brunt of the violence and instability.

Expressing deep concern for the plight of the Sudanese people, Secretary-General Guterres emphasized the urgent need for a cessation of hostilities and a commitment to achieving lasting peace. He called on all parties to lay down their arms and engage in constructive dialogue to resolve the conflict and pave the way for a sustainable peace process.

As Sudan grapples with the devastating consequences of continued warfare, the international community, including the United Nations, stands ready to support efforts to address the root causes of the conflict and facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid to affected communities. The Secretary-General’s condemnation underscores the imperative of prioritizing civilian protection and upholding human rights in Sudan’s path towards peace and stability.
