Residents of East Jebel Marra suffer from deteriorating humanitarian situation
A local administrator and activist described the situation as catastrophic, during an interview with Radio Dabanga. He claims the continuous bombardments since 2003 have destroyed all water sources, forcing citizens to drink water from the craters left by the air strikes. It has been reported that the water is infected by toxic materials that pours out of the bombs.
He appealed to the international community and the United Nations to put pressure on the Sudanese government to stop the indiscriminate air strikes against civilians. He added that the international community and the Security Council have failed to put a halt to the aerial bombardment.
