Sudan: No ceasefire for Ramadan

This statement represents a blow to the United Nations, that in the past hours admitted a draft resolution related to a ceasefire during Ramadan in Sudan, and adds another failure in its management of war conflicts worldwide.

In Sudan, General Yasser al-Atta has stated that the military will not agree to a ceasefire during the upcoming month of Ramadan without specific conditions being met.

The military has made a key demand for the RSF to vacate civilian areas, adhering to an agreement from talks in Jeddah the previous May. This request is a part of the military’s efforts to maintain order in an already devastated country.

The dispute between the military and the RSF began in April 2023 due to differences regarding Sudan’s transition to civilian governance. The conflict has caused significant destruction and displacement. Although the RSF had an early advantage, the military has recently reported gains, especially around Omdurman.

The RSF’s stance on the military’s conditions is unclear, and past ceasefire negotiations have not been successful. The humanitarian situation in Sudan is critical, with many civilians facing displacement and scarcity.

This statement represents a blow to the United Nations, that in the past hours admitted a draft resolution related to a ceasefire during Ramadan in Sudan, and adds another failure in its management of war conflicts worldwide.
