Medical authorities in Fashoda County of Upper Nile say they are treating more than 90 wounded soldiers as a result of ongoing clashes in Malakal, the capital city of the state.

The county’s medical director, Dr. Dak Nyikang, told Eye Radio that they are calling on the government and NGOs to help them with medical equipment and essential medicine.

He said they urgently need“antibiotics, diclofenac sodium injections and Tramadol”.

Out of the 97, 5 of them are civilians.

Dr. Dak Nyikang added that they are helped by two doctors who ran away from Malakal Teaching Hospital because they were threatened and shut in the hospital on Wednesday evening.

He said that thousands of civilians who have crossed the river Nile from Malakal are in dire need of medical attention in the county.
