KHARTOUM MAY 17: Fighting continues to rage between government troops and rebel militia forces in Sudan, despite efforts to impose a ceasefire. Reports continue to pour in about increasing cases of civilians being murdered and raped, along with large scale looting.

Rapid Support Forces fighters have claimed control of a key military base in the capital Khartoum – while in western Darfur, more civilians are being killed in the city of El Geneina, scene of some of the worst violence in the country.

Rapid Support Forces paramilitary led by Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo is receiving support from eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar, Russian military outfit Wagner and the government of the Central African Republic. Both the RSF and the army accuse each other of getting external support while cowardly denying they receive any themselves.

Air strikes and artillery fire continues across capital Khartoum on according to residents. UN says most Sudanese refugees are going to Chad & Egypt while South Sudanese are returning home. The UN refugee agency has redirected aid from its global stockpiles for Chad and South Sudan.

The UN humanitarian response plan is seeking close to $3 billion (€ 2.7 billion) to provide urgent aid to people affected by the crisis. Ramesh Rajasingham, head of the UN office for the coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Geneva said that close to 25 million people, “more than half the population of Sudan, need aid and protection”.

Sudan Doctors Union has said that the civilian death toll from the ongoing fighting between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) has risen to 822.
