Two Powerful Generals Behind Bloody Sudan War, Why 200 People Killed In Three Days, Know The Reason
The Sudanese army and the RSF are now fully deployed in Khartoum. This gives an indication that the violence could escalate. More than 200 people have been killed and 1,800 injured in the three-day fighting. The fighting started because Dagalo wanted the RSF to be integrated into the Sudanese army. There is also the question of who will have more control over fighters and weapons. Dagalo began deploying troops over the weekend around the small town of Merowe, north of the capital. He sent more forces around Khartoum without Burhan’s consent. Dagalo played a major role in the repression of the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) and the Justice and Equality Movement (Gem) during the 2003 Darfur conflict, which claimed that non-Arab Sudanese were oppressed by Sudan.
Fighting broke out at a military base south of Khartoum, with both sides accusing each other of stoking tensions. Fighting continues in densely populated areas of the capital, Khartoum, and the twin city of Omdurman. Both sides fight each other with heavy weaponry, including armored vehicles and truck-mounted machine guns. The fighting has spread to the strategic coastal city of Port Sudan in the Red Sea and eastern regions, which border Ethiopia and Eritrea, as well as the war-torn Darfur region.
At present, there is little chance of a ceasefire. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi and his South Sudanese counterpart Salva Kiir and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) urged all parties to de-escalate the situation. It is not known when the Sudanese population will be relieved of this war. According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, Russia, the United States and the European Union are vying for control of this resource-rich African country. Sudan has gold, uranium, chromite, gypsum, mica, marble and iron ore and has huge potential for electricity generation through hydroelectric power plants. The military controls many resource-rich areas, but the RSF controls the major gold mining areas. However, this country of more than 46 million people is one of the poorest developing countries in the world, with a large part of the population living in poverty.
