RSF Is Accused of Targeting Diplomatic Missions in Sudan

Rapid Support Forces

The Sudanese Foreign Ministry charged the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) on Tuesday of storming the diplomatic missions’ headquarters in the nation’s capital, Khartoum.

According to an announcement from the ministry, “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses its profound regret and discontent over the rebel Rapid Support Forces’ unlawful and unethical assaults on diplomatic headquarters and outposts.”

Based on affirmation, the headquarters and employees of diplomatic missions, international and regional organizations are in immediate danger due to the rebel Rapid Support Forces’ frantic maneuvers through residential neighborhoods and other civilian areas while using armored vehicles and firearms.

The ministry has urged foreign posts to exercise vigilance and share such incidents right away.

An armored vehicle owned by the U.S. embassy in Khartoum was targeted earlier on Monday, and there had been an assault on the residence of the European Union ambassador to Sudan.

Reports claim that there were severe battles on Tuesday near the RSF barracks south of the capital Khartoum, the Khartoum International Airport, and the Sudanese army command and presidential palace.

Armed skirmishes between the Sudanese army and the RSF have been taking place in Khartoum and other regions beyond the capital since April 15, with both sides blaming the other for starting the dispute.

Since the RSF moved armored cars to a place close to the military air base there on Wednesday, which the army regarded as illicit, tensions within the two armed forces in the Merowe region of northern Sudan have risen.

Deep rifts have developed among the RSF and the Sudanese army, especially in regards to the latter’s incorporation into the army as outlined in a framework agreement signed on December 5, 2022 by military and civilian authorities.
