Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces say they control armored corps camp

The Rapid Support Forces (RSF) announced a “notable victory” over what “the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and its backers linked to the former regime at the Armored Corps in Khartoum.”

The RSF said in a statement that their forces “inflicted heavy losses on the SAF and its allied militias linked to the former regime, particularly the extremist al-Bara Battalion, killing hundreds of soldiers and 18 senior officers.”

In the statement, the RSF announced that they managed to “take control of nearly the entire Armored Corps camp except for minor areas still under contention,” confirming “seizing 101 tanks, 90 armored vehicles, and 21 combat vehicles and substantial quantities of weapons and ammunition.”

Since Sunday, the RSF launched attacks on the armored corps and the ammunition camp in Al-Shajara area. Meanwhile, the SAF continued artillery attacks on RSF positions in several areas of Khartoum.

Since April 15th, Sudan witnessed intense and widespread clashes between the SAF and the RSF in various areas of the country, with the majority concentrated in the capital Khartoum. These clashes have resulted in hundreds of civilian casualties, including deaths and injuries.
