Eyewitnesses in Sudan claimed that the Rapid Support Forces (HDK) targeted the headquarters south of Khartoum from two sides and the army repelled the attack that lasted for hours.
Eyewitnesses stated that the army expanded the area of conflict in the Kuz, Rumeyla and Cebra districts in the south of the capital, where the HDK was stationed.
Rapid Support Forces announced that 14 wounded soldiers were handed over to the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Airspace closed until 10 July
Sudan Civil Aviation Authority announced that the decision to close the airspace, except for humanitarian aid and evacuation flights, has been extended until 10 July.
Sudan airspace was closed to regular air traffic after the civil war between the army and HDK in mid-April.
