Khartoum – Safa

The United Nations announced, on Thursday evening, that 30 babies have tragically died in hospitals in Sudan since the beginning of the power struggle between the army commander, Abdel Fattah Burhan, and the commander of the rapid support forces, Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo.

During a press conference, the spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, highlighted the humanitarian consequences of the ongoing fighting in Sudan since mid-April, which has killed at least 865 civilians, according to the Sudan Doctors Syndicate.

The UN spokesman highlighted the new UN data confirming the death of 6 newborn babies in a hospital in the city of al-Din in just one week recently due to problems, including lack of oxygen due to a power outage.

And the World Health Organization confirmed, in a statement, that “more than 30 newborns have died in hospitals since the beginning of the fighting.”

The US State Department, for its part, said on Thursday that the monitoring mechanism for the cease-fire agreement in Sudan identified possible violations of the agreement, including the use of artillery, fighter jets and drones.

Office spokesman Matthew Miller told reporters that the United States continues its special contacts with both sides of the conflict, and that Washington will not hesitate to use all available tools to hold both sides accountable.
