What did you miss?

In Sudan, one of the warring factions, the RSF militia, has declared a unilateral ceasefire on the occasion of the Eid which started today. RSF has been in a fierce battle with the regular army since last weekend.

The ceasefire should come into effect at 6:00 am (it is the same time there as in the Netherlands) and last for at least 72 hours. For example, “humanitarian corridors can be opened to evacuate civilians, and they can visit their families,” the RSF said in a press statement.

The question is whether the ceasefire will be observed. Sudan’s military has not yet responded. Previous files were violated almost immediately.
