Sudan military suspends ceasefire talks with rival RSF; Fate of civilian hangs in balance|Oneindia

Sudan’s army has reportedly suspended its participation in talks over a ceasefire and humanitarian access...raising fears of renewed fighting that has displaced tens of thousands of people.

The talks with the rival paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) had began in the Saudi Arabian port city of Jeddah in early May and had produced a declaration of commitments to protect civilians and two short-term ceasefire deals that have been repeatedly violated.

The army and the RSF had agreed to extend a weeklong ceasefire deal by five days just before it was due to expire late on Monday.

Fighting had already been reported yesterday both in Khartoum's metropolitan area and in the western region of Darfur.

Both sides have accused each other of breaking the ceasefire by carrying out actions that violate the truce deal.

The RSF has accused the army of violating the truce, saying that its militias would "exercise the right to defend themselves.

The truce was brokered and was being remotely monitored by Saudi Arabia and the United States, which said that it has been violated by both sides.

This protracted fight has left the civilians in dire need of aid, ffod, essential supplies and help.

According to UN figures, around 25 million people in Sudan are in need of aid and protection, with entire districts of Khartoum being without running water and receiving only a couple of hours of electricity per week.
