The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors announced 105 cases of injury at the 31 July Khartoum protests, including a scattered gunshot wound, 11 protestors run-over, and 68 cases of tear gas related injuries.

The excessive violence at the hands of the security forces started as the demonstrators, calling for peaceful co-existence, moved towards the Republican Palace and Katarina Street from the Bashdar Station in El Deyoum El Shargiya in Khartoum.

Participants in the procession told Radio Dabanga that a number of injured protestors were treated at the El Jawda Hospital in the El Diyoum El Shargiya neigbourhood.

Witnesses also stated that the demonstrators withdrew and gathered in front of El Jawda Hospital as a result of the coup force’s violence.

The protest was called for by the resistance committees in Khartoum, the Forces for Freedom and Change, and a number of cities in the states. Demonstrators denounced the military coup, calling for civil rule, and justice for the 116 demonstrators that have died in protests against the October 25 military coup.
