In Sudan, the army hit the Rapid Support Forces (HDK) points in Khartoum and its neighbors Bahri and Umdurman with warplanes this morning.
Hospitals, public buildings and workplaces are also targeted by warplanes because they are used as headquarters by HDK members.
The humanitarian situation worsens
Fierce clashes between the parties, especially in Khartoum, Bahri in the north and Umdurman in the west, continue despite the Jeddah Declaration and the ceasefire in force, which foresees meeting humanitarian needs and facilitating aid activities between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the HDK.
While the residents of the capital left their homes in difficult conditions, some neighborhoods were completely emptied. The rest are trying to survive in difficult conditions due to constant power and internet cuts, water and food shortages.
The capital, which had a population of about 6 million before the conflict, was heavily damaged in the conflicts that lasted for about a month. The Presidential Palace, General Command of the Army, Khartoum Airport, roads, dozens of public and private facilities, residences and infrastructure were severely damaged.
Sudanese fleeing from Khartoum, Umdurman and Bahri, especially at the center of the conflict, go to the cities in the north and east, which they see as safer within the country, while leaving the country via Egypt in the north, Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia in the east, Chad in the west and South Sudan in the south.
Humanitarian aid begins to arrive
Sudan Ministry of Health announced that 6 planes carrying food, shelter and medical supplies from friendly countries and organizations landed at Port Sudan Airport in the east yesterday.
Qatar announced that it had sent 35 tons of medical aid, while Egypt and the United Arab Emirates reported that they had sent 4 humanitarian aid planes to Sudan and its western neighbor Chad.
Interior Minister dismissed
The Chairman of the Interim Sovereignty Council and Army Commander in Sudan, Abdulfettah al-Burhan, dismissed Lieutenant General Anan Hamid Muhammed Ömer, who was the Deputy Minister of Interior and also the Chief of Police, from his duties, and appointed Lieutenant General Halid Hasan Muhiddin as proxy.

Armed clashes broke out between the Sudanese army and the HDK on the morning of April 15 in the capital of Sudan, Khartoum and other cities.
Sudan Doctors Committee announced that 822 civilians have lost their lives and 3 thousand 215 people have been injured in the clashes so far.
The “Jeddah Declaration” was signed on May 11 as a result of the negotiations between the parties in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in order to stop the ongoing clashes between the army and the paramilitary NGO in Sudan.
According to the United Nations data, since April 15, 736,200 people have been displaced within the country, while approximately 200 thousand people have sought refuge in neighboring countries.
While 450 thousand of those who left their homes were children, tens of thousands of people who took refuge in Sudan after the instability in their neighbors returned to their countries.
The United Nations (UN) reported that approximately $2.6 billion in financing was needed to meet the humanitarian needs of those affected by the crisis in Sudan.
Noting that the crisis in Sudan has affected the lives of millions of people, the UN said, “People in Sudan cannot access their basic needs and health services. Nearly one million Sudanese have been displaced and moved to neighboring countries. Today, 25 million people, more than half of Sudan’s population, are in humanitarian aid and protection. “This is the highest figure we’ve seen in Sudan.” had made the statement.
