The tear gas was fired as demonstrators were heading towards the presidential palace in the capital Khartoum, in the latest rally against the October coup.
Regular mass protests have been held in Sudan since the last military coup by al-Burhan.
At least 79 people have been massacred and many hundreds wounded in the brutal attacks on anti-coup demonstrations, according to Central Committee of Sudan Doctors.
Sudanese authorities have repeatedly denied using live ammunition against demonstrators. Earlier this year, in January, the UN human rights office (OHCHR) demanded “Authorities in Sudan must immediately halt unnecessary and disproportionate use of force against protesters.” But as usual, al-Burhan and Hemmeti are sitting in their offices, laughing themselves to death at all such demands.
An important issue raised during today’s demonstrations by the protesters is criminal liability for the massacres of young people who exercised their legal right to protest.
On Monday, anti-coup protesters in the city of Wad Madani, south of Khartoum, were seen waving Sudanese flags and carrying posters of people killed in the crackdown. “No to military rule” and “blood for blood”, they chanted, according to present witnesses.
In Khartoum, some protesters called for the dissolution of the infamous paramilitary Rapid Support Forces commanded by Burhan’s deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Daglo.
“The Janjaweed should be dissolved,” the protesters chanted, in reference to the RSF.
Moreover, I think al-Burhan has lost all dignity, honor and identity.
He is an enemy of God, the Sudanese, and the humanity.
