At least 97 civilians have been killed and 942 others injured in clashes over the weekend between the Sudanese Army and the powerful Rapid Support Forces (FAR) paramilitary group, the Sudanese Central Medical Committee said.
The independent committee said in a statement that this Sunday, during the second day of fighting in different parts of the country, a total of 41 civilians "were killed", mainly in the capital, Khartoum, and the towns of Bahri and Omdurman.
On the first day of fighting, on Saturday, at least 56 civilians were killed, according to the source.
Likewise, the committee pointed out that the number of victims could be much higher since the emergency teams cannot travel through different areas of the west of the country due to movement restrictions due to the intense clashes between the Army and the FAR.
The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors also denounced that the soldiers are using health facilities as a "refuge", and recalled that using hospitals for war purposes is "a crime against Humanity, against values and morals, and against the treaties and agreements that prohibit their violation."
The Army reported late on Sunday that the general situation was "very stable" and that there were only "limited clashes" with the FAR, mainly in the Sudanese capital.
The Armed Forces claim that they control most of the military installations and vital infrastructure in Khartoum, and that they have seized the strategic Merowe airport in northern Sudan from the FAR, as well as large areas of the conflictive area of Kordofan, in addition to other regions.
Given the escalation of violence in highly populated cities, on Sunday the Army and the FAR accepted a UN proposal to establish humanitarian corridors and cease fighting in residential areas for a brief period of three hours, something that allowed the evacuation of more than a thousand residents in Khartoum, sources from the Sudanese Red Crescent told EFE.
