Sudan crisis, disagreement between two armed forces and conflict situation

Ethiopia has expressed concern that unrest in Sudan has spread beyond Khartoum to its borders. The Ethiopian government has expressed concern that the Sudanese war in the capital Khartoum and other key areas is spreading to the border and other areas. Foreign Ministry spokesman Ambassador Meles Aleem told reporters that the Sudanese army had escalated to a “worrying” level. According to the official, the fighting between the Rapid Response Force (RSF) and the army that began months ago is now involving rebels in the South Kordofan province.

The United Nations said in a recent report that 50,000 Sudanese have crossed the border into Ethiopia fleeing the Sudanese war that began last April. The Sudanese army last week accused the Sudanese People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM-North) of attacking it. The group also has ties to South Sudan and its fighters control the province of South Kordofan. Fear has now worsened in Kadugli, the seat of South Kordofan province, and people are fleeing.

Meanwhile, unrest has also erupted in the Blue Nile region of Sudan, which borders Ethiopia. The United Nations has expressed grave concern over the crisis in the Blue Nile region of Kumruk. Sudanese air strikes kill 17 people, including five children  At least 17 people, including five children, have been killed in an air strike in Sudan’s capital Khartoum, officials say. Twenty-five homes were destroyed in Saturday’s attack on a residential area near Yarmouk. This comes a day after the army general vowed to increase action against the RSF. Fighting between the Sudanese army and the RSF began in April over a dispute over the country’s military leadership.

In early October, Yarmouk, where the arms factory is located, was completely controlled by the RSF. Following the attack, the warring sides agreed to a 72-hour ceasefire starting at 1 am on Saturday. Previous ceasefire agreements have not been respected. The death toll is not clear, but it is estimated that more than 1,000 people, including civilians, died. According to the UN, 2.2 million people have been displaced in the country and more than half a million have fled to neighboring countries. Several ceasefire agreements have been announced to allow civilians to flee the fighting, but they have not been implemented. Recent attacks targeted civilians in the Mayo, Yarmouk and Mandela regions, according to RSF. The military did not respond.

Thousands of civilians have fled to neighboring Chad since the fighting began. Health professionals and hospitals in the country are beyond their capacity to provide services. The war has also reignited nearly twenty years of conflict in Western Sudan’s Darfur. Ambassador Meles Alem said the conflict in West Darfur is escalating between Arabs and Africans, just like the ethnic conflict two decades ago.
