The US State Department said today (Tuesday) that a Saudi-based committee established to monitor the implementation of the ceasefire agreed upon by the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces is discussing with the United States allegations of violations of the agreement.
Ministry spokesman Matthew Miller said in a press statement that Washington – in addition to speaking directly with the leaders of the two conflicting parties – has additional tools to deal with cases of non-compliance with the ceasefire, and that it will not hesitate to use these tools at the appropriate time.
Despite the entry into force of the armistice, Khartoum witnessed battles and air strikes on the night (Monday / Tuesday), according to local residents.
The Sudanese Ministry of Health accused the Rapid Support Forces of being stationed in Al-Ban Al-Jadeed Teaching Hospital, in the afternoon and in Omdurman Hospital, bringing the number of hospitals in which the Rapid Support Forces are stationed to 29.
Eyewitnesses said that battles broke out in the cities of El Geneina and Nyala in the Darfur region, west of the country.
