Armenian Citizens Evacuated from Sudan Amid Ongoing Conflict, Set to Arrive in Armenia
Seven Armenian citizens have been evacuated from Sudan to Cairo amidst escalating violence; they are expected to arrive in Armenia tomorrow, according to the Embassy of Armenia in Egypt.
As violence intensifies in Sudan, seven Armenian citizens have been evacuated from the country and are currently in Cairo. According to a Facebook post by the Embassy of Armenia in Egypt, they are set to arrive in Armenia tomorrow. The situation in Sudan has deteriorated, with urban warfare trapping many residents and causing shortages of food, fuel, water, and power.
Mounting Casualties and Ceasefire Violations
The United Nations has reported at least 512 people killed and nearly 4,200 wounded in the conflict, although the actual number is believed to be much higher. The Sudan Doctors Union has stated that at least 387 civilians have been killed. Both the army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have accused each other of violating an internationally brokered ceasefire, with the RSF alleging air strikes on their bases in Omdurman and Mount Awliya.
Regional Instability and Refugee Crisis
The ongoing violence has forced tens of thousands of refugees to flee across Sudan’s borders, further contributing to instability across a volatile region stretching from the Sahel to the Red Sea. The ceasefire, set to last until Sunday at midnight, aims to temporarily halt the conflict, but the situation remains precarious and continues to threaten the safety and well-being of civilians.
The evacuation of Armenian citizens from Sudan highlights the growing concern for international citizens caught amidst the escalating conflict, while the broader implications of the violence pose significant challenges to regional stability.
