The indiscriminate attack on Shambat neighbourhood

In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful


Today, the Shambat neighbourhood experienced a severe and indiscriminate attack with heavy artillery by the Command of the Omdurman Corps of Engineers, part of the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF).

This attack resulted in the unfortunate loss of innocent lives, injuries to several citizens, and significant damage to homes and other private property. The shelling targeted important locations, including the Sheikh Zain Al-Abidin Mosque and the residence of leading politician Al Moez Hadra.

Additionally, SAF warplanes today bombed several residential neighbourhoods (Al-Azhari, Eid Hussein, and Al-Salama) located south of Khartoum. This aerial assault caused the tragic loss of life and injuries to numerous civilians.

While we strongly condemn these savage actions against defenceless citizens, we urge regional and international organizations to carefully observe and document these crimes. These acts clearly violate both human rights and international humanitarian principles.
