Clashes between the army and the HDK in Sudan
The Sudanese army wanted the Rapid Support Forces (HDK), which it once supported but regarded as 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 period spanning about 10 years after the civilian government, turned into an armed conflict between the parties in the capital Khartoum and various cities on the morning of April 15.
According to the latest statements by the Sudanese Ministry of Health and the United Nations, more than 3,000 people died in the conflict, tens of thousands were injured, and more than 3 million people were displaced inside and outside the country.
