Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces commander, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, announced on Saturday the formation of a committee to engage with political forces and armed movements in the country to address the ongoing crisis. In a Twitter post, Dagalo emphasized the importance of dialogue as a key necessity to achieve a comprehensive political solution, urging extensive consultations to address the deep-rooted national crisis through the involvement of all political, youth, and community forces.

The UN’s Humanitarian Coordinator, Martin Griffiths, issued an urgent call to the international community regarding Sudan, warning that efforts must be doubled to prevent the conflict from turning into an endless and brutal civil war with severe repercussions for the region.

Griffiths emphasized that Sudan’s suffering will only end with the cessation of fighting, highlighting the increasing difficulty of accessing millions of people in need of urgent humanitarian assistance after four months of conflict. He urged all parties involved, including the Sudanese army and Rapid Support Forces, to commit to the Juba Declaration to protect civilians and respect international humanitarian law.

More than 3 million people in Sudan, half of them children, have fled violence inside and outside the country since the conflict began, leaving around 13.6 million remaining children in Sudan in dire need of humanitarian assistance. The international community’s commitment is vital to providing aid safely to those in need and preventing further humanitarian crises in the region.
