The military’s proof of life was released to the press in the form of video recordings of al Burhan’s meetings with soldiers and officers at the Wadi Seidna airbase, located south of this capital and in areas of the twin town of Omdurman, on the east bank of the Nile River.
The Sudanese army is loyal to al Burhan in the war he has been waging since mid-April with the leader of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) militia, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, the cause of some 5,000 deaths, a much higher number of wounded and some 4,600,000 displaced persons.
This is the first appearance of the military man since others broadcast weeks ago which showed him inside the army headquarters in this capital, whose control is disputed by both opponents.
Sources close to his rival spread versions according to which al Burhan is convalescing from serious wounds.
Several attempts, including an Egyptian mediation and the convening of a meeting between the adversaries organized by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, ended in resounding failures as the opponents claim that they can win the war.
