On Wednesday morning, a Sudanese Air Force Antonov aircraft dropped 11 bombs on the villages of Anicolo and Trojy in Al Qoz locality in the Nuba Mountains of South Kordofan. The bombing resulted in “massive destruction of farms and agricultural crops”.

The official spokesman for the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), Arnu Ngutulu Lodi, told Radio Dabanga that six of the bombs fell on Trojy, while the other five landed in the vicinity of the village of Anicolo. There were no human casualties; however significant tracts of farmland were destroyed.

Lodi: “We continue to assure the international community that President Al-Bashir does not respect the ceasefire he himself declared. His regime continues to terrorise civilians with aerial and artillery bombardments and their long-range targeting of populated and agricultural areas.”
