Two civilians injured in govt attack on UN Juba base: Eyewitness
JUBA (19 Sep.)
A young man and a woman were wounded in a random shooting on the UN base in
Juba, when government soldiers targeted unarmed civilians at the UN PoC 3
on Sunday afternoon, an eyewitness said.
Rev. Mathew Dhol, a displaced person inside the UN camp, told Radio Tamazuj
that government soldiers came and started shooting at displaced families
inside the UN PoC 3 at the Jebel Checkpoint on Sunday afternoon.
“The situation is still difficult, the soldiers came and started shooting
at anybody inside the camp, they wanted to harm the people inside the
camp,” he said.
He pointed out that the incident resulted in the wounding of at least two
people including a woman. “A woman was shot in the leg, and there is a
young man who is 19 years old who was also shot inside the camp, they were
with us in the camp, we didn’t know the reason,” he explained.
The religious leader revealed that the two wounded displaced were taken to
hospital for treatment. He added that the incident took place after the
camp was opened so citizens could fetch water.
Last week, heavy shooting was heard around 5:00 am at the Jebel Checkpoint
area near the UN camp in Juba. Reportedly, displaced women were not allowed
to leave the camp and that water suppliers also stopped to take water to
the area due to insecurity.
The government accuses the United Nations of harbouring armed elements
inside its camps.
