RSF refuses to agree to week-long truce with Sudanese army
The leadership of the Rapid Reaction Force (RRF, RSF) does not currently confirm its agreement to a seven-day truce with the Sudanese Army (SAF). About this in an interview with Al-Arabiya TV channel declared adviser to the head of the RSF Yousef Izzat.
“It is premature to talk about our agreement to a seven-day truce. At the moment, we have not agreed to a truce for a week,” the RSF leader’s adviser quoted the channel as saying.
On May 2, representatives of the South Sudanese Foreign Ministry announced that the SAF and RSF had agreed to the introduction of a regime ceasefire countrywide. It was assumed that the temporary truce would be in effect for seven days, starting on May 4.
The armed conflict between the Sudanese Army (SAF) and the Rapid Reaction Force (RSF) began on April 15, 2023. The reason for the clashes was the issue of integrating the RSF into the structure of the army. The fighting began in the capital of Sudan, the city of Khartoum. However, they quickly covered other parts of the republic.
According to the Ministry of Health of the country, 550 people became victims of the conflict. Another 4926 people are listed as victims.
