 .Republic of Sudan Ministry of foreign affairs. Office of the spokesperson and Department of information The Janjaweed militia once again confirms its terrorist nature by targeting a number of safe villages and towns in the east of the Aljazeera state, which is devoid of any military targets, terrorizing its residents, displacing some of them, and threatening humanitarian activities and workers. The ministry points out that the Aljazeera state, its capital and Madani host large numbers of displaced people due to the war in Khartoum, and under international law, any attack on areas with displaced people is a crime against humanity, the perpetrators of which will be tried before international justice The targeting of Al-Jazeera state comes as an extension of the militia’s practices in Khartoum and the states of Darfur, North Darfur and Kordofan, where crimes against humanity, atrocities of ethnic cleansing, sexual violence, and attacks on Displaced Persons camps were committed, which was condemned by the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the government of the United States of America, the European Union, and other governments, and documented by international organizations and media outlets that provided irrefutable testimonies about the atrocities committed by the militia. In this regard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomes the condemnation by the permanent representative of the United States to the United Nations of the militia attack on the outskirts of Wad Madani and her assurance that the perpetrators of terrorist acts will be held accountable. It also welcomes the position of Senator Chris Coon, a member of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who also condemned the attack. The ministry renews its call on the international community to classify the militia as a terrorist group, criminalize providing any form of assistance or support to it, from any side, and consider it an accomplice of the militia in responsibility for terrorist acts, crimes against humanity, and ethnic cleansing that it continues to commit. The Ministry of foreign affairs stresses the special responsibility assigned to the United Nations Security Council in carrying out its role in countering militia terrorism, in light of the suspicion of the council’s moral inconsistency in this regard resulting from the fact that one of its non-permanent members is an accomplice in the aggression against Sudan and bears responsibility for those atrocities on an equal basis with the terrorist militia.
