Sudanese protesters have blamed military government for the sporadic outbreak of violence in the country.

The Security forces had to fire tear gas on the protesters on Sunday, July 17.

According to authorities, over 30 people were killed and 100 injured in tribal clashes that started last week between the Hausa and Fung tribes in the southeastern state, close to the border with Ethiopia.

It was gathered that curfew has been declared in two towns, while protesters in the capital carried signs reading “Stop Civil War,” “Blue Nile is Bleeding,” and “Cancel the Juba Peace Agreement,” as they marched towards the presidential palace.

The anti-military movement, which has carried out a campaign of protests since a coup in October 2021, has accused the military of stoking internal conflict and failing to protect civilians.

Meanwhile, the military leaders posited that takeover was necessary to preserve Sudan’s stability amid political infighting, and that they are working to build on the peace deal in Darfur and other regions.
