The Sudanese doctors’ union now says that 39 out of 59 hospitals in the capital, Khartoum, are out of service, highlighting the worsening humanitarian situation in the country.
The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors in the morning said that only 20 hospitals were fully or partially operational.
“Among the hospitals that have stopped working, there are nine hospitals that were bombed, and 16 hospitals that were subjected to forced evacuation,” the CCSD said.
Fighting is continuing in Khartoum and other parts of Sudan as the army and paramilitary force trade blame for violating a 24-hour truce that was due to take effect on Tuesday evening.
Nearly 200 people have been killed in the fighting which began on Saturday.
