A group of army and militia troops assaulted a number of people near Golo in western Jebel Marra, Central Darfur, on Tuesday. One of them is reported missing. In Kabkabiya, North Darfur, militiamen shot a villager, and took his belongings.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, one of the victims reported that they were attacked by the government forces “just a half a kilometre northeast of Golo”.

“They beat us with their rifle butts, before they robbed us of our money, mobiles, and all our other belongings,” he said. “After the attack, we discovered that Omar Hassan Ismail had disappeared.”

He appealed to the Central Darfur authorities to stop the assaults by government forces on civilians.

In the area of Balwa, south of Kabkabiya, Ismail Abdallah was hit by three bullets in an attack by gunmen. “He was taken to the Unamid clinic in Kabkabiya in critical condition,” a relative told radio Dabanga.

“The militiamen robbed Abdallah of SDG 1,170 ($195), goods estimated at more than SDG 500 ($83), and his two donkeys.”
