Description

The drawing depicts how the military of the Government of Sudan attacked civilians in their villages in Darfur. The military committed atrocities by burning houses in the villages and indiscriminately shooting and killing civilians that resulted in thousands of children and women being killed in these military operations. For the military to be efficient and effective in its killing, they came on horseback, in armored trucks and tanks, and used bombs and machine guns to massacre civilians. Bakhit Abdallah Adam drew this picture when he was 11 years and he recalls these atrocities committed in his village in Darfur in 2004 when he was 8 years old.
