Clashes between the army and the HDK in Sudan
The Sudanese army wanted the HDK, which it once supported but considered a threat because it acted as an independent and parallel army, to be fully integrated into the army within 2 years.
The war of words and tension, which started with the HDK’s declaration that it could accept this in a process spanning about 10 years after a civilian government, turned into an armed conflict between the parties in the capital Khartoum and various cities on the morning of April 15.
In the conflicts in Sudan, which entered its third month, approximately a thousand people lost their lives and nearly 5 thousand people were injured.
