South Sudan troops committed war crime: HRW
July 22, Khartoum: Human Rights Watch (HRW) has alleged South Sudanese troops of committing war crimes against humanity by killing and raping civilians in rebel-held parts of the country’s Unity State. The troops targeted the villages, despite the absence of rebel fighters.
The group said on Wednesday that the South Sudanese army were involved in forcibly displacing tens of thousands of people in unity by attacking women, elderly, and children, and burnt villages.
The study report of the HRW has documented 60 people being killed and 63 rapes through interviews with 170 in just three months time from April to June offensive.
