The Sudanese army commander, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, appeared in a video recording as he chaired a meeting of the military leadership, coinciding with the escalation of the confrontations in Khartoum and Omdurman.

The sources of “Al-Arabiya” and “Al-Hadath” said that the Abu Saad Al-Murabaat neighborhoods in Omdurman witnessed violent clashes, while the Rapid Support Forces opened massive anti-aircraft guns.

Sudanese military sources also reported that four sites belonging to the Rapid Support Forces, east of the Nile, Khartoum North, were targeted by an attack carried out by the Sudanese Air Force. The sources added that the sites include camps and stores of weapons and equipment

Four missile launchers of the Rapid Support Forces in Bahri city were also destroyed in an air strike launched by the army forces, which were used by the Rapid Support Forces to bomb the city of Omdurman.

In a new audio recording attributed to the commander of the Rapid Support Forces, Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, known as “Hamidti”, he said that the former regime of Omar al-Bashir has no place in Sudan again. He also said, “He will not despair of calling on the honorable army to stop fighting and work to end the suffering of the citizens caused by those who hijacked the army’s decision and plunged the country into a war that they will not win.”

Mustafa Mohamed Ibrahim, advisor to the commander of the Rapid Support Forces in Sudan, expected that a comprehensive ceasefire would be reached between the army and the Rapid Support Forces before the end of this month, under Saudi-American sponsorship.

Authorities monitoring the conflict in Sudan and a witness said on Monday that the Rapid Support Forces fighting the Sudanese army took control of a town in southern Darfur, causing clashes, looting and the start of a new wave of displacement.

Clashes between the Rapid Support Forces and the army around the town of Kas caused about 5,000 families to flee, some of them from camps for the displaced, according to the report.

The war that broke out between the army and the Rapid Support Forces in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, led to an increase in displacement and ethnically motivated violence in the Darfur region, which is a stronghold of the Rapid Support Forces and is already suffering from a protracted conflict.

On Sunday, the RSF said it had captured an army base in Kass, seizing vehicles and weapons and capturing 30 soldiers as part of the wider conflict.

The Darfur Bar Association, which monitors the conflict, denounced what it described as an attack on Kass by the Rapid Support Forces, which led to looting and theft.

Al-Fadil Muhammad, one of the witnesses, told Reuters that violent clashes took place in the town, resulting in at least three deaths and the displacement of residents to the east.

The current war, which broke out amid disagreements over a planned handover of power to civilians, has led to the displacement of more than three million people, including more than 700,000 who have fled to neighboring countries.

Despite both sides showing openness to regional and international mediation efforts, none of them resulted in a permanent ceasefire.
