Kabkabiya… Army Airstrike Claims Lives of Several Children and Women

Several children and women were killed on Wednesday in an airstrike by the Sudanese army on the city of Kabkabiya in North Darfur, according to a statement from the Rapid Support Forces.

The forces stated in a statement on the X platform: “Continuing their monstrous crimes against the Sudanese people, the Sudanese army‘s aircraft bombed the city of Kabkabiya in North Darfur state on Wednesday, killing several children and women and destroying homes.”

The Rapid Support Forces said that “deliberate airstrikes on innocent civilians fall under the category of terrorist acts, violating all international and humanitarian laws, and reflect the current situation of the (captive) army elements of the extremist regime seeking to destroy the Sudanese people and infrastructure,” according to the statement.

The statement added that “the scene of scattered children’s bodies lying among the rubble of destroyed homes in Kabkabiya as a result of the airstrike on innocent civilians confirms the state of frustration and despair that has gripped the army leaders due to the defeats suffered on all fronts of combat.”

Clashes erupted again on Wednesday between the Sudanese army and its allies on one side, and the Rapid Support Forces on the other, inside the city of El Fasher, North Darfur, resulting in deaths and injuries among civilians.

The clashes broke out in the northern part of El Fasher city, with intensive use of artillery, noting the continued movement of citizens towards displaced camps on the outskirts of the city.

On Tuesday, an airstrike by the Sudanese army destroyed the power conversion station in El Fasher city, according to eyewitnesses.

Witnesses added that “Sudanese army planes dropped explosive barrels on the El Fasher power conversion station, causing several facilities and warehouses inside the station to catch fire.”

Activists shared videos and photos on social media showing the aftermath of the fire and the burning of the El Fasher power conversion station, as clashes with the “rapid support” forces continue.
