Sudan’s Warring Sides Resume Fighting After Latest Ceasefire Ends

Intense battles have broken out between Sudan’s military and a rival paramilitary force after a three-day ceasefire expired.

The truce – brokered by the United States and Saudi Arabia – ended yesterday.

The resumption of fighting signalled that US and Saudi efforts to extend the truce had failed. Both Washington and Riyadh have been mediating between the warring factions to stop the clashes.

The conflict has been centred largely in the capital and western Sudan’s Darfur region, which has seen ethnically motivated attacks on non-Arab communities by RSF and allied militias, according to UN officials.

According to the United Nations, the fighting in Sudan has killed thousands of people and forced more than 2.5 million to flee their homes to safer areas in the country or neighbouring nations. it also adds that about 25 million people – more than half the country’s population – are in need of aid and protection.

Sudan descended into chaos in mid-April after months of rising tensions exploded into open fighting between rival generals seeking to control the country. The war pits the military, led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, against the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), a militia-turned-paramilitary force commanded by Mohamed “Hemedti” Hamdan Dagalo.
