Violent Clashes Between the Army and the Rapid Support in Omdurman

Witnesses said the Corps of Engineers area south of the city saw the heaviest clashes in days.

Eyewitnesses explained that the Rapid Support Forces tightened their siege on the Corps of Engineers and the adjacent medical corps, which are located near two main bridges linking southern Omdurman with central Khartoum after the Shambat bridge was hit and the Rapid Support Forces and the army exchanged accusations of destroying the vital bridge.

According to eyewitnesses, the support deployed more soldiers and combat vehicles in the vicinity of the two weapons still held by the army in Omdurman.

Residents reported heavy artillery shelling targeting the suburb of al-Thawra in Karary locality in northern Omdurman, where the army is deployed.

Abdo Saeed, a resident of the area, said according to the Arab World News Agency that his area has been witnessing artillery shelling for days, but today the beating was violent, according to him.

“In the morning, Dana fell into our house and injured my aunt with shrapnel in her left leg. A large part of the house was demolished.”

He said most residents of the area had been forced to leave because of the artillery shelling that had been going on for days.

Army artillery carried out artillery strikes from the Wadi Sedna military base north of Omdurman, and intensive strikes on rapid support positions in the city of Khartoum North, north of the capital, and neighborhoods adjacent to the sports city and the ground of the Rapid Support Forces camps south of Khartoum.

The clashes come after a day that witnessed a qualitative development of the conflict between the two sides following the destruction of the Shambat Bridge, linking the cities of Bahri and Omdurman yesterday morning, in which the two sides exchanged accusations of destroying it.
