FDA Appeal: Torture in Jebel Marra, 03/05/2003
The Fur Diaspora Association received information that the Sudanese government
forces and its Arab militias in Darfur continued committing gross human rights
violations. Women were raped, civilians were tortured, beaten, and their properties
confiscated. This tragic incidence took place on March 05/2003 in Jabal Marra
area when government forces and Arab militias (Janaweed) this time known as (Abu
'Ishreen), attacked the villages of Rokirro, Rasheed and Tibon. As a result of
this destructive invasion, the people of the three villages are now homeless and
are in desperate need for shelter, food, medical and psychological treatments.
The Fur Diaspora Association (FDA) appeals to human rights and aid organizations
to immediately intervene and rescue civilians in Jabel Marra. The association
also urges the UN and those who concern to form a neutral commission to investigate
and stop war against innocent civilians in Jabel Marra.
