KHARTOUM OCTOBER 1: While Sudan’s army leader receives international recognition on the global stage, his troops have increased bombing campaigns on civilian areas – ostensibly trying to target the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces who use civilians as human shields to protect themselves.
The Rapid Support Forces consist predominantly of mobile infantry suited for gruelling urban conflict. In response, the slower, more heavily equipped Sudanese Armed Forces have relied on airpower and artillery to bomb RSF positions resulting in drastic civilian casualties.
