Gunmen attacked Haraza in the northern part of Katila locality in South Darfur on Monday.

“A group of about 100 armed men, some in two vehicles, and others riding on horses and camels stormed the administrative unit of Haraza on Monday.

“They robbed the people of their money and belongings, and chased them from the area. They then torched the market, a number of houses and tents, and the offices of the paramilitary Popular Defence Forces (PDF),” Salah Osman Idris, Commissioner of Katila locality told reporters on Tuesday.

“Before they torched the PDF offices, they seized all the arms and ammunition from the stores,” he added.

One villager was injured, and taken to Nyala Teaching Hospital for treatment.

The commissioner stressed that all the people at the area fled. “Haraza has become entirely desolate.”
