Over 17 Killed in Attack on Sudanese Village

On Friday, more than 17 people were killed and 80 injured in an attack by the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) on the village of Aseer in central Sudan, Xinhua reported yesterday.

The RSF militia stormed the village as residents were leaving a mosque after Friday prayers, using light and heavy weapons to target the civilians.

The attack led to major displacement from the village, with the RSF forces still stationed outside.

This is the latest violence in the ongoing deadly conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the RSF that has claimed over 15,550 lives and displaced 8.8 million people nationwide since April 2023.

The RSF took control of Gezira State in December 2023 after the SAF withdrew from the capital Wad Madani.
