Sudan’s army, RSF agree to 24-hour truce

The Sudanese Armed Forces have agreed to a 24-hour truce, starting at 6 p.m. local time, with the condition that they ensure the arrest of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), according to Sudanese army general Shems al-Din Kabbashi, as reported by AI Arabiya. The RSF, led by general Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, has approved the ceasefire to facilitate the safe passage of civilians and evacuation of the wounded. However, clashes between the two forces have continued, resulting in a death toll of 185 people and 1,800 wounded as of Monday, with tensions escalating since Wednesday. UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutterres has called for an immediate cessation of hostilities and dialogue to resolve the crisis, while the Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors has reported a death toll of 144 civilians. The conflict stems from deep differences between the Sudanese Army and the RSF regarding their integration into the army as stipulated in a framework agreement signed in December 2022.
