Heavy fighting breaks out in Sudan once again

sudan-conflicto-4-768x577
Khartoum, Oct 2 (Prensa Latina) Fighting between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) resumed in the area of Wad Ashana, North Kordofan.

The paramilitaries claimed to be in control of a military base in Wad Ashana, where they announced that they had captured weapons, ammunition and 12 combat vehicles from the Army, which was denied by their adversaries.

The head of the Sudanese Armed Forces, General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, stated that the discourse promoted by the RSF about democracy, justice and a call for dialogue is false.

Al-Burhan told members of the artillery corps in the city of Atbara, to the north of the country, that the RSF intends to divide the country, and described their actions as a stab in the back of the people of Sudan.

The war in Sudan has already left more than 7,500 deaths, most of them civilians, and around seven million displaced in the country itself or seeking refuge in neighboring countries, especially Egypt and Chad.

The clashes broke out on April 15th 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 Transition Council (CST), within the Armed Forces, and the chief of the Army and president of the CST, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.

Both generals are fighting to control the country after the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir back in 2019.
