KHARTOUM JUNE 7: Heavy fighting between the Sudanese army and a paramilitary group in southern Khartoum – images emerge of fire at fuel depots near a weapons manufacturing company. The battle between the two has intensified in southern Khartoum, where rapid support forces claim to be inside a weapons factory in the area of Yarmouk.

A massive fire broke out on Wednesday near a military complex containing an arms factory in southern Khartoum. The paramilitary Rapid Support Forces attacked the Yarmouk complex on Tuesday. A fire that began in the morning suddenly grew in size before sunset on Wednesday as explosions were heard. Due to the proximity of fuel and gas depots, any explosion could destroy residents and the whole area.

Clashes between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have continued for over seven weeks, with fighting reported in Khartoum, Al Obeid and different parts of Darfur. The humanitarian situation is particularly dire in parts of Darfur, as reports of inter-communal violence and attacks on civilians have increased.

An attack in Kutum, North Darfur, on 3 and 4 June left an unconfirmed number of civilians dead and injured, including in a camp hosting internally displaced people.

Access to basic services, including health care, continues to be severely hampered by the conflict.
