Intense bombing.. The Sudanese army targets the Rapid Support Forces in central Khartoum

While the fighting continues between the Sudanese army led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, intensive shelling renewed in the capital, and violent clashes took place between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces in Khartoum.

Sudanese army aircraft targeted a site of the Rapid Support Forces in central Khartoum, according to Al-Arabiya/Al-Hadath correspondent.

“The Sudanese army bombed several Rapid Support sites in the vicinity of the Sports City in Khartoum,” he added.

He also reported that clashes took place in several areas in Omdurman and Khartoum.

According to residents in the south of the capital, the warplanes carried out “heavy bombardment on Rapid Support sites around the Sports City, and in the neighborhoods south of the Armored Corps.”

Others pointed out that the army “bombed the areas of Soba, east of the Nile,” and witnesses from north of Omdurman, a suburb west of Greater Khartoum, reported that “heavy artillery and rocket shells were fired towards the Bahri area, north and south of the capital,” according to what was reported by “Agence France Presse.”

Outside the capital, witnesses from the city of El-Obeid, the capital of North Kordofan state in the south of the country, reported “an exchange of artillery shelling between the army and the Rapid Support Forces around the city,” which has a strategic location on the road linking Darfur to the capital, as well as the presence of the country’s third largest airport.

Since its outbreak on April 15, the war between the two military leaders has resulted in the death of at least three thousand people and the displacement of more than three million people, whether inside or outside the country.

The two sides reached several cease-fire agreements, mediated by Saudi Arabia and the United States. However, the negotiations that took place in Jeddah were suspended last month after the two parties to the conflict accused each other of violating the truce.

The battles are concentrated in the capital, Khartoum, its suburbs, and the Darfur region in the west of the country, where a quarter of Sudan’s population of 48 million lives.
