Residents flee Tabet as fighting breaks out
Fighting between government forces and armed opposition movements has displaced a large number of civilians from Tabet in North Darfur.
Witnesses living near Zam Zam camp said they could hear the echoes of bombs and missiles towards Tabet, where soldiers and militias are based.
They also said the road between El Fasher and Nyala was blocked yesterday, and vehicles traveling along the road were turned back from Tabet.
Other witnesses said government forces were shooting and launching air strikes this morning in Tabet, and the noise of heavy weaponry spread panic amongst residents causing them to flee.
They said families fled on foot to Um Kebo village and other villages along the road leading to Zam Zam camp.
Reports of civilians casualties or arrests are yet to be verified.
