The parties announced that they declared a one-week ceasefire on May 20, through the United States and Saudi Arabia, to be effective as of 21.45 on Monday, May 22.
One day after the ceasefire took effect, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned that Sudanese generals would face sanctions if they did not comply with the final ceasefire.
The Sudanese Ministry of Defense called for mobilization of retired soldiers and those holding a gun yesterday.
The evacuation of citizens of countries with many citizens such as Syria, Yemen and Egypt continues, as well as fleeing to safe areas within the country and surrounding countries from the areas where conflicts intensified in and around the capital Khartoum.
Clashes between the army and the HDK in Sudan
The army wanted the Rapid Support Forces (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 the escalating tension, which started with the announcement that he could do it, turned into an armed conflict between the parties in the capital Khartoum and various cities on the morning of April 15.
The HDK was formed in the form of a militia structure to fight against the rebels, protect the borders and maintain order in Darfur during the period of President Omar al-Bashir, who was overthrown by a coup in 2019. The HDK, which was affiliated with the Security and Intelligence Organization in 2013 and later became more independent, has tens of thousands of members.
Stating that more than one million people were displaced within the country, the United Nations announced that 300,000 people fled to neighboring countries due to conflicts.
Sudan’s Ministry of Health announced that 709 people have been killed and 5,424 injured since the beginning of the conflict.
