A Sudanese army patrol heavily fired shots inside Hamidiya camp in Zalingei, Central Darfur, just past midnight on Tuesday, 2 October. There are no reports of casualties at the moment.
A Zalingei camps coordinator told Radio Dabanga that a Sudanese army convoy stormed the camp and fired in the air for about 45 minutes. The army, stationed north of the camp, targeted blocks 1, 2, 3 and 7 during the shootings, he added.
The heavy shooting caused panic and horror amid the camp residents, sources told Radio Dabanga.
The camps coordinator accused the army of being behind the violations the camp's residents are exposed to. He condemned their invasion and random shooting inside Hamidiya and called upon UNAMID to work on keeping the army outside of the camp.
