Sudanese army commander, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, announced his intention to continue military pressure to recapture more territory from the grip of the Rapid Support Forces.

Burhan made his remarks during his visit to the Corps of Engineers base in Omdurman, where he stressed to the soldiers the need to continue military operations until a complete victory is achieved over the “rebels”, as he put it.

Sudan’s army has expanded its advance towards the centre of the old city of Omdurman, increasing control influence and cutting off supplies to the RSF.

Despite international appeals for a ceasefire in Ramadan month, the Sudanese army has confirmed that it will continue military operations until an agreement is reached on a major withdrawal by the RSF.

The army released a video showing Burhan stopping in an SUV convoy with heavily armed guards for a Ramadan breakfast with some residents of the area on the side of a road in Omdurman.

The war erupted after a dispute between the army and the RSF over a political transition plan and caused more than 8 million people to flee their homes, triggering the world’s largest displacement crisis.

The number of Sudanese facing levels of a hunger crisis, a pre-famine, has more than tripled in one year to about 5 million.
