Air strikes and artillery have killed at least 459 people, wounded over 4,000, destroyed hospitals and limited food distribution. There are reports of several deaths and injuries among refugees and internally displaced persons. A wanted Sudanese war crimes suspect, Ahmed Haroun, has confirmed that he and other members of the former regime were released from prison.

KHARTOUM APRIL 26: Since 15 April 2023, fighting between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) has continued in Khartoum, with clashes in Darfur and several other locations in Sudan.

The fighting has turned residential areas into battlefields. According to Reuters, air strikes and artillery have killed at least 459 people, wounded over 4,000, destroyed hospitals and limited food distribution in a nation where a third of its 46 million people rely on food aid.

There are reports of several deaths and injuries among refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs). At least five humanitarian workers have been killed since the start of the hostilities.

On 24 April, OCHA issued a statement saying they are deeply concerned about the humanitarian impact of the fighting. There are reports of acute shortages of food, water, medicines and fuel, and limited access to communications and electricity. The price of essential items – as well as transport – are skyrocketing. There have been additional reports of looting of humanitarian supplies and warehouses.

The Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) agreed to a 72-hour ceasefire beginning on Tuesday after negotiations mediated by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. Fighting flared anew in Sudan late on Tuesday despite a ceasefire declaration by the warring factions.

A wanted Sudanese war crimes suspect, Ahmed Haroun, has confirmed that he and other members of the former regime ousted in 2019 were released from prison during recent fighting. Ahmed Mohammed Haroun is one of five Sudanese men wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.
