The witness said that the citizens of more than 15 villages, including Tangarara, Himeidiya, Sharafa, Abuguja, Arda, and Kandaro fled to hide in the mountains, valleys and plains around the villages. The aircraft continued to bomb in the areas until yesterday evening.
Darfuri rebels reported attacks on some of the same villages. For his part, an intelligence official of the Liberation and Justice Movement, Ali Muhammad Abdullah, told Radio Dabanga that the region is experiencing extensive looting and burning, referring specifically to the burning of three villages. He also said that there is a new wave of displacement toward the north. Speaking from the field, he told Radio Dabanga that LJM troops were about to engage in a battle with government forces in the region.
Confirming reports of displacement, residents of camps north of Nyala say that over the past few days they received people fleeing from killings and bombings taking place in the areas of Shangil Tobaya and Khor Abeche. Witnesses in the camp said that each day about four vehicles loaded with refugees arrive at the camps. They noted the importance of providing emergency shelter to the new arrivals, especially given the low temperatures this time of year.
