Darfur: Attack on Amar Jadeed Village

On 19 August 2005, armed men on horsebacks allegedly attacked and looted Amar Jadeed village, North West of Labado, Shearia province, Southern Darfur state. The attack took place at approximately 01.00am when the villagers were sleeping. During the attack, three of the villagers were killed and tens were wounded. The militias’ also looted 630 camels.

The details of the villagers killed are as follows:

1. Alsayid Yagoub Hessain Neel

2. Adam Abdella De’aina

3. Nasr Aldean Mohamed Bokhari

Following the attack, the militias travelled to the North towards Niteaga, Shearia province where there has been confirmed reports of a gradual build-up of Janjaweed militias in the area.

The Birgid tribe Administration have reported the attack on Amar Jadeed and the amassing of Janjaweed militias in Niteaga to African Union observers in the region and to the Governor of Shearia, however no action has thus far been taken.

SOAT strongly condemns the attack on Amar Jadeed village resulting in the death of three people. SOAT calls on the Government of Sudan to immediately disarm the Janjaweed militias and any other militias operating in Darfur; undertake an investigation into the attack on Amar Jadeed village, and the amassing of armed Janjaweed militias in Niteaga ensuring that the perpetrators are brought before a court of law.

i. Investigate the attack on Amar Jadeed village and to ensure that the perpetrators are brought before an impartial tribunal and guaranteed procedural rights at all times;

ii. Immediately disarm the Janjaweed militias and all other militias that are operating in Darfur;

iii. End impunity for crimes committed by the government proxy militias in Darfur;

iv. Immediately take all steps required to prevent attacks, threats, intimidations and any other form of violence against civilians;

v. Immediately cease attacks on civilians and take all steps required to prevent attacks, threats and intimidations on civilians;

vi. Guarantee respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms throughout the country in accordance with national laws and international human rights standards.
