The two Sudanese armies in conflict agreed on Monday to extend the truce under pressure from the United States and Saudi Arabia, which are playing the role of mediator, at a time when exchanges of fire are continuing in Khartoum and Darfur.

The continuing armed fighting is an obstacle to the delivery of the humanitarian aid needed to ensure the survival of 25 million people.

The tribal mobilization reported in West Darfur and the Blue Nile region are worrying signs of a potential civil war, the United Nations has warned.

The situation in the country is worrying and chaotic. The former governor of the capital, Minni Minnawi, who is close to General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhane’s army, called on Sunday for “young and old, women and men, to take up arms to defend their property”.

General Al-Burhane called on Saturday for the sacking of Volker Perthes, the UN envoy to Sudan, whom he accused of having “covered up” the explosive situation in Khartoum, blaming him for the war.

According to statistics from the Sudanese Doctors’ Association, the war in Sudan has killed at least 886 civilians, wounded thousands, and displaced nearly one and a half million.
