Armed men raped three women including one minor on Monday near Dolma, in East Jebel Marra. The perpetrators reportedly belong to a group of new militant settlers in the area.

A relative of one of the victims informed Radio Dabanga that four militant settlers on camels discovered four women tilling their farm close to the village of Dolma. They threatened three of them, aged 17, 27, and 31, and raped them.

On Sunday, three militiamen raped a young woman of 17 near Tabit, Tawila locality, in broad daylight. A witness reported that troops from the military garrison in Tabit pursued and arrested one of the alleged perpetrators, after receiving a report about the incident. The perpetrator is being detained in Tabit.

As reported by Radio Dabanga last week, on 19 July, militiamen who recently settled in the abandoned Dawaa, southeast of Tabit, raped three women displaced from the village who were attempting to retrieve some of their belongings from their homes.
