The civil forces that signed the framework agreement in Sudan today (Friday) called on the two parties to the conflict to fully adhere to the cease-fire, stressing in a statement the need to adhere to that truce that was approved by the army commander, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and the commander of the Rapid Support Forces, Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, in a better way than its predecessors.
And it called on the leaders of the army and the Rapid Support Forces to deal positively with the American-Saudi initiative, considering that the tribal confrontations that took place were a direct result of the fighting that raged since April 15 between the two major military forces in the country.
The army and the Rapid Support Forces had announced their agreement to a 72-hour truce after Saudi-American mediation, but the clashes quickly returned and erupted today between the two parties, especially in Omdurman and Khartoum North, as well as the vicinity of the presidential palace.
On the other hand, the Russian ambassador to Sudan, Andrei Chernovol, confirmed today (Friday) that the security situation in Sudan is still tense, explaining in statements to TASS agency that “the situation has not changed much as far as we know during the past 10-12 days and is still tense.”
Chernovol said, “I am not saying that it is an escalation or, on the contrary, a decrease in tension, but such sporadic clashes continue from time to time, and aviation operates from time to time,” indicating that the work is based on choosing possible evacuation routes for Russian nationals.
