Sudanese forces deliberately shot at peacekeepers & other threats and attacks on blue helmetsBackground:
On 11 April a large police & military convoy deployed on a monitoring, security assessment and verification mission at Dobo and Ambudje Areas, in North Darfur, which was witnessing intense fighting between government forces and the Sudan evolutionary !ront, was stopped at Dobo village by S"A#S"$$ rebels who re%uested a prior authoriation' (hree days later, )NA$*D deployed another large police and military convoy which made it to the area, where it spent most of the day' On its way bac+, the Sudanese forces shot several times at )NA$*D peace+eepers, which forced them to spend the night on the road, and wait for morning escort from the government forces' As usual, some government officials were %uic+ to deny being behind the attac+, while others would confirm it' *n this case, the oS $ilitary commander at )mdersay -amp informed )NA$*D that .the shooting was because of the movement of the convoy  beyond 1/00 hours and warned that )NA$*D must first inform the oS $ilitary -ommand in Shangil (obaya about their movements before embar+ing on such patrols' (his serious incident that documents the government forces2 deliberate attac+s on the  peace+eepers went unreported in 3an 4i5moon reports of April and 6uly 7018'
Similarly, 3an2s 6anuary 7018 report doesn2t indicate another oS shooting incident that too+ place on 79 December, when )NA$*D patrol came under fire while heading to 4ulbus locality, :est Darfur' As the patrol stopped, the government forces e;plained the reason for shooting' (hey claimed they weren2t informed about )NA$*D movement, which should be free and unhindered in any case' (his incident was reported by )NA$*D military, reproduced in )NDSS security report, classified as an A source, meaning a source that is +nowledgeable and has direct access to information' <See )NDSS sitrep=
3an2s report for 6uly 7018 doesn2t mention another serious incident also reported by the )NA$*D military, reproduced by )NDSS security report, classified as an A source' During this armed threat and harassment incident that too+ place on 11 April 7018 at (aiba )NA$*D borehole in >alingei town, -entral Darfur, a large group of national security personnel armed with pistols and Sudanese Armed !orces soldiers armed with rifles surrounded the wandese peace+eepers and threatened to +ill the one fetching water if he doesn2t stop fetching immediately' (he wandese peace+eepers, +nown within the mission as one of the best trained and disciplined soldiers, stood firm, re%uested reinforcement and managed to challenge yet another threat <See full )NDSS report='
 
 No serious and deadly attac+ seems to have been carried out by the rebel movements against the peace+eepers during the August5April period, to the best of +nowledge' ?owever, on 70 December a large group of S"A#$$ members visited )NA$*D team site in 4hor5Abeche and ac+nowledged having fired on the )NA$*D peace+eepers on certain occasions' Such an ac+nowledgement as well as the serious accusations they made against )NA$*D were reported in details in the police sitrep and went unreported in the 6oint Operations -entre2s sitrep to New @or+#D4O <see both police and 6O- sitreps down below='
