Clashes between army and HDK in Sudan
Armed clashes broke out between the army and the paramilitary NGO on the morning of April 15 in the capital of Sudan, Khartoum and other cities.
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.
HDK announced that they would implement a 72-hour “humanitarian” ceasefire starting from the first day of the holiday, and the army announced that it would comply with the ceasefire call of international circles in the evening.
