A mother and her child were killed in aerial bombardment on East Jebel Marra on Wednesday.

A resident of the area told Radio Dabanga that an Antonov began bombing the area north of Fanga at 11am.

“One of the eight bombs dropped led to the death of Hasina Omar Ishag and her baby daughter Darelnaeem Saleh. Eight cows and four donkeys were also killed. Pastures in the area were set aflame,” he said.

He added that the Sudanese fighter jets continued circling above the area until sunset.
