'Yarmouk bombing confirms need for regime change'

October 26 - 2012 KHARTOUM

The Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) and opposition forces, stated that the bombing of Yarmouk military arms factory in Khartoum on Tuesday October 23 is a confirmation of the need for a regime change in Sudan for the benefit of the country and its people, Radio Dabanga has learned.

Kamal Omer Abd al-Salam, leader of the coalition of opposition forces, stated in an interview with Radio Dabanga on Thursday, that "the regime of the National Congress Party (NCP) is 'skilled' in killing its people in Darfur, Kordofan, Blue Nile and in Port Sudan and Kajbar, but the protection of the sovereignty of Sudan, its territories and its people is their last concern."

He emphasized that the bombing demonstrates the regime's failure and confirms the stance of the coalition of opposition forces that the regime is no longer capable to protect its lands and preserve its sovereignty and therefore uses all possibilities to oppress the people, Kamal Omer Abd al-Salam said to Radio Dabanga from Khartoum.

For its part, the SRF stated the bombing confirms their stance that the regime needs to be changed, which is one of the goals SRF is working to achieve. Abu Algasim Imam Haj, SRF spokesman, told Radio Dabanga that the current regime is oppressing its people instead of working on protecting its lands and sovereignty.

The spokesman stressed the need to bring down the regime, so that an actual state can be built with a regime that protects the national sovereignty and the national interests, Abu Algasim added to Radio Dabanga.
