Today, Wednesday, the Sudanese army published video clips of its commander, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, as he wandered among his soldiers in the army’s general command area in the center of the capital, Khartoum.
Video clips posted by the armed forces and Sudanese accounts on Facebook and Twitter showed Al-Burhan touring an open area among a number of members of the armed forces and the Ground Forces Center in Khartoum.
Al-Burhan appeared during the video carrying his weapon and exchanging greetings with his soldiers.
The army’s general command building has been witnessing violent clashes for a month, as both the army and the Rapid Support Forces compete to control it.
Al-Burhan had disappeared from view during the past few days, as his last appearance dates back to the beginning of this May, when the Sudanese Armed Forces published a video clip in which he appeared during his supervision of the conduct of military operations in Sudan with renewed fighting despite the sixth armistice between the two parties to the conflict.
The last appearance of Al-Burhan coincided with the renewal of fighting in the capital’s neighborhoods and the fall of shells on the old industrial area in Khartoum, causing huge material losses.
Since April 15, Sudan has been witnessing violent clashes between the army led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo “Hamidti”, which included the capital Khartoum and several cities in the north and west of the country, and caused hundreds of deaths and injuries and caused an acute humanitarian crisis.
