Conflicts re-erupt in Sudan major cities after govt proposal to end war

Sources report that the Sudanese army shelled the neighbourhoods of Riyadh, Taif, Maamora, and Al-Madina Al-Riyadhia in Khartoum on Thursday morning.

The army attacked positions of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in central Omdurman, with reports of artillery exchanges southeast of Al-Obied in Northern Kordofan, according to reports.

Military sources in Al-Obied City stated that a unit from the 5th Infantry Division repelled an attack launched by the Rapid Support Forces.

Meanwhile, the Sudanese army spokesperson, Nabil Abdullah, stated that his forces were subjected to an attack by the SPLM-North forces led by Abdul Aziz Al-Hilu in Kadugli, the capital of South Kordofan.

He added that the army inflicted heavy losses on the movement members.

Fresh clashes come a day after Sudan’s Deputy Head of the Sovereign Council, Malik Agar, announced a proposed roadmap to end the crisis.

The roadmap includes an immediate cessation of hostilities and the initiation of a comprehensive dialogue to establish a transitional phase.

Youssef Ezzat, the political advisor to the Commander of the Rapid Support Forces, affirmed the rejection of Agar’s initiative and warned of sliding into a civil war if the army continues to mobilize tribes in different regions of the country.
