The Rapid Support Forces accused the Sudanese army of bombing the Ethiopian embassy buildings in the capital, Khartoum, causing “massive destruction.”
The group released a statement through its official spokesperson, accusing the Sudanese army of bombing the Ethiopian embassy buildings on Tuesday morning.
The embassy building is located in the Al-Amarat area in Khartoum.
“We in the Rapid Support Forces condemn and regret these barbaric actions that the Burhan militia has continued to pursue by targeting vital installations in the country, including the headquarters of diplomatic missions and international organizations,” the group claimed on a statement posted on X. The Sudanese army was yet to respond to the allegations. The two warring factions have been trading blames and are still fighting each despite several attempts for a ceasefire.
According to the new Arab Agencies, European Union ambassadors agreed on a framework of sanctions that will be used to target key actors in Sudan’s war and impose asset freezes and travel bans, sources familiar with the matter said.
The war broke out in Sudan in April between the Sudanese army led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who ousted longtime autocrat Omar al-Bashir in 2019, and a paramilitary force led by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, known as Hemedti.
The fighting and bloodshed have since continued to escalate despite international attempts to forge a lasting ceasefire.
The war has uprooted more than 5 million people from their homes and created a humanitarian in Sudan
The United States, Britain, Norway, and Germany plan to submit a motion to the U.N. Human Rights Council to set up an investigation into alleged atrocities in Sudan, including ethnically motivated killings, a draft motion showed on Friday.
The new conflict is adding another layer of complexity to an already challenging humanitarian situation in Sudan, where millions of people were estimated to be in need of humanitarian assistance of some kind in 2023 before this crisis. Sudan used to host over 1 million refugees, the second highest refugee population in Africa, mainly from South Sudan, Eritrea, the Syrian Arab Republic and Ethiopia, but also from the CAR, Chad and Yemen.
More than 800,000 Sudanese have fled the country and are now living as refugees, mainly in Chad, South Sudan, Egypt, the Central African Republic and Ethiopia. Approximately 1 out of 3 previously displaced individuals in Sudan are now displaced again.
