Scores of government buildings affected as Sudanese Army, RSF clash

Local media disclosed that some prominent government buildings in Khartoum were damaged following fresh renewed hostilities between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), without offering more information on the casualties.

Social media images show smoke billowing from the buildings of the Justice Ministry, the Sudanese Standards and Metrology Organization linked with the Prime Minister’s Office, and the Nile Oil firm, all of which were damaged in the capital on Sunday.

As the fighting approached its sixth month, clashes between the army and the RSF became more intense in central areas in Khartoum, which housed government offices, banks, and universities.

On Saturday, the RSF attacked the Army General Command in the city, the Signal Corps in Bahri, and the Corps of Engineers headquarters in Umdurman, according to local media sources.

The army claimed to have repelled RSF raids while inflicting severe casualties on enemy forces, killing and wounding dozens of them.

In contrast, the RSF blamed the army for the strikes, stating that “military aircraft deliberately bombed and destroyed Khartoum’s infrastructure and living areas.”

Since April, more than 3,000 civilians have been killed and others have been injured in violent confrontations in the war-torn country.

Several cease-fire agreements arranged by Saudi and US mediators have failed to bring the carnage to a stop.
