Sudan’s Lingering Conflict Enters An Eleventh Month


As Sudan approaches the 11th month mark since the eruption of conflict on April 15, 2023, the nation continues to grapple with the repercussions of ongoing clashes between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

The prolonged violence has resulted in the displacement of millions, prompting grave concerns from global humanitarian organisations.

The UN Security Council has urged for an immediate ceasefire to honour the values of the Holy Month, but the country is yet to see that happening.

WFP has raised alarms

With millions of lives being forgotten, over 25 million people across Sudan, South Sudan and Chad are now trapped in a spiral of deteriorating food security, and risk to become the world’s largest hunger crisis.



After a 10-month siege in Omdurman, Sudanese Armed Forces have been able to begin regaining control over one of Sudan’s largest cities

Amidst the ongoing struggle for control over key locations across the country, a glimmer of hope emerged in February. The Sudanese Armed Forces achieved a significant milestone by reclaiming territory previously held by the Rapid Support Forces since the onset of the conflict. This momentous victory brought a sense of relief to many, marking a turning point in the ongoing battle for stability in Sudan.

With this great success, Bank of Khartoum announced it’s reopening, alongside two other national banks have also mentioned that they will be returning to the city at the earliest possible time.

Ramadan in a war zone

This year, residents of Khartoum, and many cities across Sudan, brought in the Holy Month in ways they would have never imagined!


Just on the second day of Ramadan, great news broke out across the internet, leaving Sudanese people across the world optimistic with hope once again.




Reactions have been flooding the internet ever since the news broke out


It has been over a month since internet and telecommunications have suffered from a complete black out

Residents across Sudan were not the first to find out the news – as live announcements began rolling in from the official Armed Forces social pages, and broadcasts from the reclaimed territory shared online.

Today, the Sudanese Armed Forces announced the successful recapture of the National Radio and Television Corporation in Old Omdurman.

These buildings hold radio and TV archives that date back to the 1940s, holding great significance to the people of Sudan, and their history.



Praying that the communities of Sudan continue to show resilience amidst adversities, in hope of a brighter future.
