Sudan's Rape Army

Updated on February 11, 2015

Yes, it is true. According to Time magazine and Human Rights Organization, on October 30th, 2014, the Sudanese Army entered the Darfar district where the town of Tabit is and simply went berserk raping 221 women and girls within a 36 hour period. Sudan, along with Syria and Iran, are on the American list for states that support terrorism. When UN investigators arrived on Nov. 9th, the army there prevented them from conducting an investigation. Witnesses stated that the soldiers went house to house. Then, any men were beaten before the girls or women there were raped. One victim, a girl, said she was subdued and held down by two men while a third penetrated her. When he was done, another man took his turn. Another witness stated that 10 soldiers dragged the women in the home outside where they were gang raped.

Sudan's foreign minister denies all of this, yet, some soldiers admitted they had raped several females during this time in Tabit. The two non-officers who came forth said their officers had ordered them to rape the women. It was just a berserk order. The town of 7000 was once controlled by rebel forces but not when the Sudan Rapid Defense Force attacked. The cause of the attack remains obscure. One raper was heard stating that the town will feel hell because one of their men had been killed. But the Sudanese force had been instructed to loot and demolish the town known to be sympathizers of the rebel forces who once controlled it and were in the area. The Sudanese attacked the town with 180 men from their nearby base, all part of a 10 year effort to eliminate all rebels. This internal war has cost 300,000 deaths from a variety of causes.

The Sudanese government denies any of the accusations happened and stated all the witnesses are lying. A special prosecutor conducted an investigation and stated not one woman said she was raped or beaten. Of course, the ones did come forth were threatened with beatings and others were silenced.
