Media rooms hired by the rebel Rapid Support Forces militia promoted a fabricated video of prisoners of war who were executed in cold-blood. The video has no relation to the armed forces with the location of the filming and the accent of the speakers pointing clearly to the fact that they are elements of the ill-reputed militia.
The truth is that the prisoners who were executed were soldiers belonging to the armed forces who were previously imprisoned by the militia.
The rebel militia rushed to issue a statement with false contents in an attempt to pin its heinous crime on the armed forces which is known for its spotless record in respecting international humanitarian law and the norms and rules of war and its strict commitment to the rules of engagement.
The fabricated videos and misleading statement come as part of a campaign to falsify facts and attempts to evade its dark record of violations against our people including unarmed civilians and reaching retired military men and all sectors of the Sudanese society.
This campaign prepared by the rebels and their co-conspirators will not deceive the honorable people who have witnessed their crimes that they themselves documented since the start of their ill-fated rebellion and which qualifies them as a terrorist organisation that has committed violations unlike any witnessed in our country’s ancient and modern history.
