Violent clashes in Sudan continue for third day after hours-long ceasefire, 97 dead (Roundup)

Europe News Desk!! Following a three-hour ceasefire in Sudan’s capital Khartoum on Sunday, violent clashes broke out again on Monday around the Sudanese military command, Khartoum International Airport and the presidential palace. At least 97 people have been killed and hundreds of others injured since the start of the conflict, according to the Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors, a non-governmental body, Xinhua news agency reported. The Sudanese army said on Monday that they had limited clashes with the Rapid Support Force (RSF) around the perimeter of the army general command and the center of Khartoum. The armed forces are in full control of all their headquarters and whatever is being circulated about the enemy occupying the General Command, guesthouse, or the Republican palace is untrue, the army said in a statement.

The army said the Sudanese air force launched strikes against several hostile targets on Monday with the aim of eliminating RSF pockets in the capital. The army accused media mouthpieces loyal to the RSF of spreading lies to mislead the public. Meanwhile, RSF commander Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo on Monday urged the international community to intervene to stop the Sudanese army commander’s crime. The international community must act now and intervene against the crimes of Sudanese General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, a radical Islamist who is bombing civilians, Daglo said on his Twitter account on Monday. The army is waging a brutal campaign against innocents, bombarding them with missiles, he said.

He also denied that his army started fighting with the Sudanese army. We did not attack anyone, he said. Our actions are only a response to the siege and attack against our force. Volker Perthes, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Sudan and head of the United Nations Integrated Transition Assistance Mission (UNITAMS) in Sudan, said on Monday that he was extremely disappointed that the Sudanese Armed Forces was committed to.
