The Sudanese army confirmed its control of the armored vehicles camp in the Al-Shajara military area, south of the capital, Khartoum, and eyewitnesses reported today (Tuesday) that the army forces are still in control of the area after they bombed Rapid Support sites in the vicinity of the armored corps.
Sudanese sources stated that the armed confrontations between the two fighting parties continue in a number of old neighborhoods in the city of Omdurman.
And the Sudanese army announced, yesterday (Monday), that it had confronted an attack by the Rapid Support Forces on the armored corps and the ammunition complex, south of Khartoum, after fierce battles that lasted for two days in the vicinity of those military areas. A spokesman for the armed forces said that it killed and wounded hundreds of members of the Rapid Support Forces as they attempted several times to storm the two headquarters.
Clashes have continued between the two military forces in Sudan since mid-April, in many areas, and have so far resulted in about five thousand deaths, according to the ACLIAD organization.
The clashes are concentrated in the capital, Khartoum, and its suburbs, in addition to the Darfur region, which the United Nations has warned that what is taking place may amount to crimes against humanity, and that the conflict takes on ethnic dimensions. The war led to the displacement of more than four million people, whether inside Sudan or to neighboring countries.
