Qatar Airways has announced the suspension of its flights to Sudan due to the closure of Khartoum International Airport.
Clashes broke out on Saturday between forces supporting General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, head of Sudan’s transitional ruling council and the RSF militia, led by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, known as Hemedti, who is the deputy head of that council.
The military and the RSF claimed control of Khartoum’s international airport and other key facilities where fighting broke out overnight.
The fighting that has broken out in the capital, Khartoum, and elsewhere in the country is a direct result of the intense power struggle within the military leadership of Sudan.
Since the revolution of October 2021, the country has been run by a council of generals – and there are two soldiers at the center of the conflict.
