Clashes between army and HDK in Sudan

Armed clashes broke out between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (HDK) on the morning of April 15 in Khartoum and other cities, the capital of Sudan. The disagreement between the army and the HDK regarding the military security reform, which envisages “the full participation of the HDK in the army”, had turned into a hot conflict in the last few months.

The Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the Sovereignty Council Chairman and Army Commander General Abdulfettah al-Burhan had decided to dissolve the HDK, which clashed with the army, and to declare a rebel force against the state, and that they would act on this basis.

According to the World Health Organization, at least 300 people died in the conflict.
