Sudanese army and paramilitary group agree to extend truce for five more days

In a brief statement released via Twitter, the armed institution announced its decision. According to the Army, the FAR have repeatedly violated the truce and have not respected commitments made during the previous round of dialogue, such as withdrawing from hospitals and residential buildings that they occupied during the clashes.

The talks are taking place in the Saudi city of Jedah and are being sponsored by Saudi Arabia and the United States, which have accused the parties of repeatedly violating previous ceasefires.

During a visit to the troops in Khartoum (capital), the head of the army, General Abdel Fattah al Burhan, declared: "The army is ready to fight until victory."

For their part, the FAR accused the Army of violating the truce and stated that they "will exercise their right to defend themselves."

In a statement, the paramilitary group added that the Sudanese armed forces attacked its positions on the ground in Khartoum and the neighboring city of Omdurman, and launched aerial and heavy artillery bombardments against residential neighborhoods in the latter city and in Bahri.

The FAR indicated that they unconditionally support the mediation of Riyadh and Washington, and that they are working to address the humanitarian crisis facing that nation, although they did not refer to the possible suspension of the negotiations.

Last Monday the parties had agreed to extend for another five days a truce in force since May 22, and which in turn they violated with air strikes, artillery fire and armored movements.

The fighting, which has also spread to the Darfur region (west), has already caused the forced displacement of almost a million and a half people and that 25 million Sudanese (half the national population) now require humanitarian aid.

According to the official balance, the fighting has so far left more than 700 dead, although the Sudan Doctors Union considers that there are more than 860 and the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (Acled, for its acronym in English) reports that more than 1,800 people have lost their lives.
