KHARTOUM MAY 22: Sudan’s army conducted air strikes in the capital Khartoum on Monday, residents said, seeking to win ground against its paramilitary rivals hours before a week-long ceasefire. Both sides have said they will abide by a ceasefire starting at 21:45 local time (19:45 GMT). The ceasefire deal includes a monitoring mechanism involving the army and the RSF as well as representatives from Saudi Arabia and the United States. On Monday, residents reported air strikes in Khartoum, Omdurman and Bahri.

Sudan’s warring factions signed an agreement late on Saturday for a seven-day cease-fire as fighting that has plunged the country into chaos and displaced more than a million. Unlike truces previously announced, the US and Saudi said this one is different because it was “signed by the parties” and will be supported by a “ceasefire monitoring mechanism”.

The army has struggled to dislodge the RSF from strategic positions in central Khartoum and from neighbourhoods where it has occupied civilian buildings. The people do not have much hope that this ceasefire will be kept.
