O The announcement was made by the regional emergency director of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Marcelin Ridja, on his social network account X (formerly Twitter), in which he denounced an “atrocity that represents one of the episodes of violence bloodiest in the history of the Darfur region”.

Two weeks after the war between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) began on April 15, Arab tribes and the Masalit resumed the clashes that have characterized both groups since the 1980s.

The Darfur24 portal recalls that the last two waves of clashes, in 2020 and 2021, resulted in more than 450 deaths, almost 530 injuries and thousands of displaced people.

Ridja, whose NGO he belongs to deals mainly with victims of ethnic and religious persecution, as well as with populations affected by wars and violence, did not provide details about the victims or the time of discovery.

In July, 87 bodies attributed to RSF were found in West Darfur, according to the UN.

Among the dead were women and children, all from the Masalit tribe.
