The paramilitary group said, in a statement, that the armistice will take place in order to open humanitarian corridors and for the people to leave the area. On the other hand, the Sudanese army did not comment on the truce.

The clashes in Sudan gained great repercussions on Saturday (15) and began after a split between the army and the paramilitary forces.

In October 2021, the two groups come together to stage a coup that removes civilians from power. Now, the army and the RSF are fighting for control of the country.

Despite Sudan’s history of internal conflicts, the capital, Khartoum, has always been spared and in relative peace. This time, however, the city became the epicenter of the clashes.

Before Friday’s truce, another ceasefire was announced, but it ended up being broken. Since Saturday, more than 300 people have died and another 3,000 have been injured.
