Violence and Shortages Persist in Sudan’s Capital Despite Ceasefire Efforts

Khartoum remain trapped amid fresh strikes, despite international pressure for a 72-hour ceasefire. There are severe shortages of food, water, and fuel in the city.

The situation is particularly bad in El Geneina, a city in Darfur, where militias have looted and torched markets. The fighting, which began two weeks ago, was triggered by a power struggle between Sudanese military factions.

One of the warring generals, Hemedti, stated that his troops were relentlessly bombed, and he would not negotiate until the fighting ended. The UK government has given Britons a deadline of midday local time to catch flights out of Khartoum. However, the situation remains dire for the Sudanese people, with no end in sight for the ongoing violence.

The international community must work together to find a resolution to the conflict and provide much-needed aid to those affected by the crisis. The Sudanese people have suffered for too long, and it is time for action to be taken to bring peace to the region. The current situation is unsustainable, and urgent steps must be taken to address the root causes of the conflict.
