Sudan: warring parties agree ceasefire

Previous ceasefires were broken by both warring sides. However, according to the report, this agreement will be monitored by the United States, Saudi Arabia and through a monitoring mechanism set up by both countries and supported internationally without providing details, the Reuters news agency reported. Both warring sides have also pledged not to pursue a military advantage in the hours leading up to the ceasefire.

Under the agreement, the warring parties also agreed to facilitate the delivery and distribution of humanitarian aid and the restoration of necessary services and to withdraw troops from around hospitals and public facilities.

In mid-April, fighting broke out between government forces and the RSF. According to figures from the World Health Organization, these killed more than seven hundred people. At least 5,300 people were injured.
