On Tuesday, the Sudanese Air Force bombarded western Jebel Marra in Darfur for the second consecutive day.

Witnesses told Radio Dabanga that more than a dozen bombs fell on the areas of Kodi, Buri, Mara, Wadi Toro, and Baga. They killed dozens of livestock and ignited fires in houses and forests.

Callers predicted that there will be civilian casualties, but they could not give any numbers as the population fled in directions.
