Today (Thursday), US President Joe Biden issued an executive order on imposing sanctions on people who destabilize Sudan, stressing the need for the battles that have been going on for weeks to end.
Biden threatened new sanctions on those responsible for the bloodshed, saying in a statement: “The violence in Sudan is a tragedy, and a betrayal of the clear demands of the Sudanese people for a civilian government and a transition to democracy,” adding: “It must end.”
In the same context: “US National Intelligence Director Avril Haines said today before the Senate that the battles in Sudan between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces, in our estimation, will likely be prolonged; Because the two parties believe that each of them can win militarily and have little motive to sit at the negotiating table.
She noted that the fighting has exacerbated the already dire humanitarian conditions, raising the specter of a massive influx of refugees and the need for aid in the region.
Clashes renewed in the vicinity of the Presidential Palace, the General Command and Bahri in Khartoum, with army planes continuing to fly in Khartoum, and Rapid Support responding with anti-aircraft guns.
