Sudan: The armed forces vow to renew the cease-fire

Gunfire could be heard on Friday night despite the Sudanese army’s agreement to a 72-hour ceasefire.

On Friday evening, the Sudanese Armed Forces announced their agreement to a three-day ceasefire. The military said in a Facebook message that the ceasefire should go into effect on Friday so that citizens can celebrate Eid at the end of Ramadan. The army did not specify a specific time for the start of a possible ceasefire. There was no initial confirmation from the rival RSF.

But shortly thereafter, an advisor to the commander of the RSF accused the army of violating the ceasefire, according to Al-Hadath TV, an Arabic-language station. According to media reports and eyewitnesses, gunshots and explosions were heard in Khartoum on Friday evening.

Broke broke the fire several times

The two sides had already agreed to a ceasefire several times in the past few days, but so far they have repeatedly violated it. Many Sudanese have been stuck in their homes, schools and other facilities for days. According to the United Nations, thousands of people do not have food or access to medical care. A cease-fire is a critical precondition for potential evacuation missions of foreign nationals in Sudan.

The country’s two most powerful generals and their units have been fighting for supremacy in Sudan since Saturday. The two men have led the country in northeastern Africa with about 46 million inhabitants since their joint military coup in 2021. According to the World Health Organization, at least 413 people have been killed and more than 3,500 wounded in the fighting since last weekend. . Here you can read more about it.
