Fighting in Sudan described as the worst of the war

Khartoum, Jun 7 (Prensa Latina) The clashes between the army and paramilitary groups intensified with the use of artillery and rifles in the main cities of Sudan, in a new escalation in the middle of attempts to restart peace dialogues.

Eyewitnesses said the main fighting is taking place in the center and south of this capital as well as in the city of Um Durman, where there was aerial and artillery bombardment by the army.

Civilian political groups denounced an unprecedented increase in the intensity of clashes in populated areas, which will result in a higher number of fatalities among the population, which is already suffering great uncertainty, without food, water or electricity.

All this is happening in the midst of attempts to return to peace talks in Saudi Arabia and a visit by the head of U.S. diplomacy, Antony Blinken, to the city of Jeddah, where the negotiations are taking place.

The army withdrew from the talks after accusing paramilitaries of repeatedly violating the truce and occupying civilian facilities, homes and hospitals.

The clashes broke out last April 15 due to contradictions in the middle of a process of integration of the Rapid Support Forces, led by Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, vice-president of the Sovereign Transitional Council (CST) within the Armed Forces, and the head of the Army and president of the CST, Abdelfatá al Burhan.

Both holding the rank of general, they have been disputing for control of the country after the 2019 overthrow of the president, Omar al Bashir.
