On 10 July 2023 a video was shared by an individual on TikTok that showed SAF soldiers occupying a hospital room and setting up a firing position on the road outside (Figure 1, link withheld for privacy reasons).
The RSF have been accused by the Preliminary Committee of the Doctors Syndicate of occupying medical sites (seen in a statement posted on Facebook). The SAF have subsequently bombed medical sites that they have claimed are under RSF occupation. This resulted in the destruction of some of Khartoum’s largest hospitals, such as the East Nile Hospital as seen in another video posted and verified by a CIR Investigator.
