October 17, 2010 (KHARTOUM) — Limited access to some parts of Jebel Marra hampers the humanitarian efforts to reach the needy in the mountainous area in Darfur.
Sudanese army intensified attacks on eastern Jebel Marra locations which are under the control of the rebel Sudan Liberation Movement Army led by Abdel Wahid Al-Nur. The air and ground attacks displaced thousands of civilians from their villages. But the peacekeeping force and the aid groups are denied by the Sudanese army from entering the area which is declared military operations zone.
"The United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan, Mr. Georg Charpentier says he is concerned by limitations on humanitarian access in view of intensified fighting in parts of Eastern Jebel Marra in Darfur,"
