Following the escalation of violence and conflicts in the state of Sudan, Council vice-chairman Hamdan Dagalo, together with the Sudanese Sovereignty council, ordered the use of military force to restore order in South Darfur state.
According to the statement, the council gave “strict instructions to the government of South Darfur state and the state security committee to resolve the tribal attacks militarily.”
It also promptly banned tribal gatherings under the emergency law to end the tribal conflicts that have escalated tensions in South Darfur.
Many areas in Darfur witness occasional deadly conflicts between Arab and African tribes over land, resources and grazing routes. According to local media reports on Tuesday and Wednesday, at least 30 people died as a result of tribal conflicts.
