ROKORO (16 May.) - The Sudanese Air Force destroyed a health center in Kaguro, north west of Fanga, in East Jebel Marra on Friday afternoon.

A resident told Radio Dabanga that the Antonov aircraft dropped three bombs on the health center, which has been established by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), north of Rokoro. It was destroyed completely. “The explosions transformed the health center into a deep hole. Medicines that were in the depot center, and other content and equipment from refrigerators, were scattered on the ground.”

The witness described that the air force's targeting of government services, health centers, schools, water resources, and markets is dangerous and “aimed at the destruction of livelihoods and the forced displacement of people”.

He called on the United Nations and the Security Council and the international community to stop the bombing, impose a no-fly zone in Darfur, and bring the perpetrators to justice.

On Wednesday, aerial bombardments killed three people and injured others at the market in Fanga, one of the biggest markets in East Jebel Marra.
