Hashem Abu Bakr Al-Jaali, the lawyer of the ousted Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir, revealed that the residence of Al-Bashir and those with him of the accused detainees who were receiving treatment in Alia Hospital were bombed yesterday (Sunday), confirming in statements to Al-Arabiya / Al-Hadath channels today (Monday) that Al-Bashir and his former deputy Bakri Hassan Salih and the rest of the accused patients were at noon prayers during the bombing, so they were not injured in the attack.
The lawyer stated that he could not confirm that Al-Bashir was targeted, describing what happened as a “war crime”.
The court had allowed Al-Bashir and five of the military defendants, including his former deputy, Bakri Hassan Salih, and former Defense Minister, Abdel-Rahim Mohamed Hussein, to be kept in Alia Hospital in Omdurman due to their need for medical care, but since the clashes, the hospital has become the center of the confrontations.
Yesterday, the Rapid Support Forces bombed Alia Hospital, damaging the dialysis center, intensive care, and operating room. On Saturday, the emergency and casualty complex at the Medical Weapon Hospital in Omdurman was bombed, killing five patients and wounding 22, most of them civilians.
