The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said today (Monday) that its embassy building in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, was stormed and vandalized, expressing in a statement published by the Jordan News Agency (Petra) its condemnation and denunciation of the attack and all forms of violence and vandalism, especially those targeting diplomatic buildings and violating their sanctity.
The ministry stressed the need to respect the rules of international law and adhere to relevant international agreements, especially the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
On the other hand, the International Committee of the Red Cross warned today (Monday) of the collapse of health facilities in Sudan, stressing that they are on the verge of collapse, a month after the outbreak of violent clashes between the army and the Rapid Support Forces in the country.
The committee said in tweets on its Twitter account: “Health care facilities in Sudan have been suffering for weeks from a shortage of supplies and treatment, and more than 70% of hospitals have stopped working.”
Medical staff and volunteers told the BBC that since the beginning of the clashes, they have been suffering from enormous psychological pressure due to the lack of food and drink, as well as the fear of the constant indiscriminate shelling in the surrounding areas.
One of the doctors added, “We have received some in-kind aid, but it is not enough, and we are now trying to evacuate the hospital in coordination with the concerned authorities, but there is no appropriate evacuation plan, which causes more concerns, because we are in a very dangerous area and vulnerable to attacks.”
