When Hate and Fake News Intersect

Old photos that have nothing to do with the events of Karenik and there is a part of them that has nothing to do with Sudan, this is just trade in tragedies. Rather, it seems they want to ignite more strife and ignite the fire of conflict further – follow the truth with links and real evidence

Most of the pictures accompanying the Karenik tragedy have nothing to do with Darfur or Sudan, or are from old Darfurian happenings unrelated to Karenik in April 2022 AD.

Ten people were killed in armed tribal clashes in the Um Kadada area in North Darfur. Sources in the region told (Al-Intibaha) yesterday that the accident occurred between two cousins’ teams, against the background of differences between them over plots of agricultural land. The disputes earlier led the cousins ​​to the courts to decide on the ownership of the lands, and the competent court had issued its decision to devolve these lands to one of the two parties, which was not acceptable to the other party.
