As Sudan protest is still prevailing, many people have already lost their lives. But, protest is not ready to staunch, and this Sudan protest is against military rule.
On January 9, 2022, one person lost his life to a tear gas canister at thousands of anti-coup protest rallies in Sudan’s capital Khartoum. However, thousands of people were part of these rallies and rejected them all to follow the rule of coups.
There was coordination between the coups and civilians. Still, the army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan led to disputes between them that had been mightily set in the wake of the overthrow of longtime ruler Omar-al-Bashir in 2019.
Security forces fired tear gas because protestors directed towards the presidential palace on January 9 Sunday, amid obstacles desired to stop people joining there and at army quarters- the crowd of demonstrators forced the general al-Bashir to come out.
According to the sources, one person lost his life as security forces broke down on protestors during the protest.
As per the doctors of CCSD (Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors), they are a separate group of medical workers, said a 26-year-old man was killed because he couldn’t get able breath because of tear gas struck in his neck.
Protestors also rebounded in Omdurman, Khartoum’s twin city and Northern Khartoum.
According to sources from Omdurman, cops are firing tear gas in a protest in Khartoum.
As per sources, cops used tear gas because protestors were marching towards the president’s palace. They tried to reach the place; however, they couldn’t get inside. As usual, cops pushed them backwards.
In Omdurman, the crowd was high, and they started early. They are also trying to march towards central Khartoum. They needed to cross the bridge to get there, but the security forces closed the bridge. Security strength was high there to stop them.
According to medics, in the history of Sudan’s post-independence, this protest killed at least 62 people till now.
