A family of four was killed by aerial bombardments on Thursday morning in East Jebel Marra. Speaking to Radio Dabanga, a relative of the deceased said that two MiG jet fighters of the Sudanese Air Force dropped six bombs 3km west of Nimra village in East Jebel Marra at about 10.30am.
Bahreldin Bashir Saleh, his wife Um El Kheir Yagoub Yahya, their son Jamal (12) and daughter, Samah (7), all died instantly.
The relative reiterated earlier appeals of East Jebel Marra residents to the UN and the Security Council to immediately intervene and “stop the indiscriminate aerial bombardments by the government and protect the civilians in Darfur”.

Militiamen seriously injured a woman from the Silo camp for the displaced in Mershing locality, South Darfur on Thursday. They stabbed her three times in her back and chest outside of the camp.
A Silo camp resident told Radio Dabanga that two “government-backed militiamen wearing military uniforms” attacked a displaced woman who was collecting straw south of the camp. She fiercely resisted the men’s stabbing and was able to hit the attackers with a tool she used for pulling the straw.
The gunmen fled and left behind a donkey they had with them. The woman has reported the incident to the police of Mershing. She has also brought the donkey there.
Meanwhile, sheikhs of the camps in Manawashi in South Darfur have complained about the “semi-collective displacement” of men and women who are in search of work. This is caused by the failure of the agricultural season, the lack of food provided by humanitarian organisations as well as the lack of security in the region, they have claimed.
One of the sheikhs has said that women are mostly moving to localities of Nyala, Kass, Tullus, El Salam, and Katayla to work on the farmlands or in brick factories. Men go searching for work in Khartoum, Gedaref, and South Sudan.

The Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) attacked the Sudanese army at about 6am on Friday morning in the area of Abata, 20km north-east of Zalingei, the capital of Central Darfur. At least 19 soldiers were either killed or injured, according to an eyewitness.
The eyewitness from the area of Abata told Radio Dabanga that the “SRF has killed nine and wounded ten soldiers at least.” They have captured two Sudanese army officials and seized two vehicles, he reported. Afterwards, the rebels looted all the weapons, equipment and supplies of the police station in Abata. He pointed out that the SRF had attacked the area with 22 land vehicles mounted with machine guns.
The witness has also disclosed that the authorities have transferred the injured soldiers to the Zalingei hospital.
The Sudan Liberation Movement led by Abdel Wahid (SLM-AW) under the banner of the SRF claims to have captured three Sudanese army offcials: sergeant Mohamed Yusef Abdelaziz, deputy sergeant Ahmed Ali Saeed, and sergeant Mohamed Ibrahim. The SLM-AW lost two of its men during the clash. “The area of Abata is now under our control,” the SLM-AW spokesperson said.
