Pastoralists robbed of their livestock in North Darfur
On Friday, gunmen raided a nomad settlement in Tawila in North Darfur and stole more than 300 head of livestock. A young herder sustained bullet wounds.
Speaking to Radio Dabanga, one of the victims reported that 12 gunmen riding on camels and horses stormed their settlement near the village of Delo, 5 km north of Fanga in northern Tawila (popularly known as eastern Jebel Marra) on Friday morning, the first day of Eid El Fitr.
“The attackers shot heavily at the settlement. 13-years-old Mahjoub Haroun was hit in his leg,” he said. “They then left, taking about 300 cows, sheep, and goats with them.”
The boy was taken to Fanga for treatment. The incident was reported to the military garrison in the area.
