Attack on Dowa village by the Janjaweed militia /East Jabal Marra-Lebeit area 24th April 2015


The Janjaweed militia which is camping in Lebeit area in east Jabbal Marra, attacked the village of Dowa, during the Friday prayer time and looted the market. The civilian deserted the village and they were randomly displaced to different places.

SUDO UK calls on the Government to disband the Rapid Support Forces as well as the Janjaweed as these are consistently committing human rights abuses in Darfur. All those individuals or groups responsible for committing human rights violations must be brought to justice.

SUDO UK calls on UNAMID to take strong action in order to fulfill its mandate, including its obligation to “prevent attacks against civilians, within its capability and areas of deployment, without prejudice to the responsibility of the Government of the Sudan”, and the requirement “to investigate and hold accountable those who are responsible, and promote efforts to disarm the Janjaweed and other militias”.
