June 11, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The United Nations Security Tuesday strongly condemned the attacks on civilians by the militiamen of the Rapid Support forces nine days ago.

Despite the important number of victims which has reached over 100 peaceful protesters, China and Russia had blocked a bid at the Security Council by Germany and United Kingdom on 5 June to condemn the killing of civilians on 3 June.

However, after the decision of the African Union’s Peace and Security Council to suspend Sudan’s membership the two countries had to pretext to veto the condemnation of the flagrant violation of human rights.

“The Members of the Council strongly condemned the recent violence in the Republic of the Sudan and expressed their regret for the loss of lives and injuries amongst civilians,” reads the statement which was unanimously adopted.

The (…) Council encouraged the Secretary-General to continue to support regional and international efforts, in particular, those led by the African Union, to facilitate and agree on a national transitional process for the benefit of the people of Sudan, and without prejudice to future agreements of Sudanese stakeholders and, as stated by the African Union, without external interference,” further stressed the statement.

The ruling military council on Monday acknowledged that some of its military elements were involved in the attack on the pro-democracy sit-in, and pledged to release the findings of its investigations.

Several texts released on the social media claims that the bloody attack was planned by Islamist in the security apparatus who used the militia of the former ruling National Congress Party.

However, activists who were at the protest site asserted that the was carried out by the RSF forces from Darfur region.

    SUDAN TRIBUNE is at again? By the way, the UNSC would be changed by us. Criminals in the US, the UK and France are not going to be bullying other countries. The UK and France will not again enjoy their *so-called UNSC* seats. The US will still retain her in that evil club, but first, bombed the evils who consider themselves to own that *damned UN building* and their *dirty intrigues and risuals* often performed on that building fellows>>>

      By the way, SUDAN TRIBUNE. The French legions mercenaries) in DRC, central Africa republic (CAR) and Chad are going to be rounded and killed. The US and France thought, that they can *revisit* their so-called *FASHODA INCIDENT* here on the bank if the Nile, in our former Upper Nile region! The criminals in the UK always claimed to have colonized ’South Sudan and the South Sudanese people’, and hence South Sudan is a former British colony and the UK can always do what it want to do in South Sudan and over South Sudanese people, just>>>

        like what the French masters always to their so-called French West Africa, Central Africa republic (CAR), Chad or Belgium Congo?. Where French legions have never left those countries. And in those former French slave countries, whenever a ’politician who doesn’t sing the masters in Paris’s come up, then he is *take down* by the *French legions* in those countries>>>

          and replaced with ’puppet/stooge’ that would utterly ’micro-managed’ in Paris, Washington, Brussels and the UN building in New York. This French legions dirty was *exposed in Ivory Coast, Mali, Bakino-Faso and here in our door, CAR*. The British think, their former slaves of *Seirra Leone, Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria* in West Africa would always be used as their backyards to play games with once or when they wanted bto. Here in East Africa; Kenya and Uganda former colonies and hence, they are *naturally British former slaves* to play around with, should they just want to>>>

            Countries like Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa are considered natural former British slave countries and the UK and her allies can always do what they want to those former slave countries. DRC a former Belgium slave country is always to be ’used as the UN, NGOs and Geopolitical test fields of intrigues and plunders’. Rwanda and Burundi another Belgium slave countries are expected to be always answerable to Belgium and France. A French NGO, even a few years ago>>>>

              sent the Burundian government "Donkeys as humanitarian aids and donations", the government of Burundi politely refused the donations. Rwanda of all countries has *morphosised from the so-called *Francophone* countries to *Anglophone countries. Mozambique, a former Portugal colony* has also *morphosised to Anglophone countries. And a few week ago, there was *storm* and the *Indian Navy was the one helping the ’poor Mozambiquans’-----’l did l mean that the *storm was from Indian Ocean*??? *South Africa, the only only developed *Sub Sarahan* Africa would be *awarded with the so-called UNSC’ club membership?!! Good luck with that fellows>>>

                Kenya, Abesh (so-called ethiopia), Nigeria, Algeria and Morocco have been *courted by the masters of the world* to join the *UNSC club*, my arse, fellows, will be damned if we are not going to *walk over some countries* and get our *UNSC seat* by force after *we have shown our enemies their right place*. Fellows, the owners have taken back their country. I am the one who will help bomb North Sudan cloned so-called arabs, West African West African piece of trash out of ’Khartoum, North Sudan and Eastern Jerusalem’ and kill these vermin>>>

                  There will not be so-called Arabs and evil juus (so-called israelis) in our country and backyards. Abeshas (so-called ethiopians), Djiboutians, the French army and the US army bases are going to be *bombed with the land the evils are on* into *RED SEA* and *Yemen with Saudi Arabia*, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. The US, the UK, their israel attack dog, their UN, their NGOs and some of their creeps in between cheap and dirty intrigues have been challenged and the evils are going to be bombed to NEAR EXTINCTION>>>
