Sudan’s Waring parties targets Foreign embassies in Khartoum

Addis Ababa, April 18,2023, Ethio Negari:- The fighting between the Sudanese army led by General Abdul Fattah Al-Burhan and the Rapid Action Force (RSF) led by General Hamdan Dagalo is in its fourth day.

In this war, more than 200 citizens have died and more than 1,500 have been injured, according to a report issued by the Sudan Doctors Committee today.

Ethiopians are also among the dead, and nine Ethiopians, including four citizens of the same family, have died.

Despite this, it has been stated that the embassies of foreign countries based in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, have been attacked.

The embassies of the United States, European Union, Ethiopia and others foreign countries are victims of the ongoing war in Khartoum, the foreign ministries of each country said on their Twitter pages.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that his country’s embassy and ambassador in Khartoum were attacked.

EU representative of foreign affairs Commissioner, Joseph Borrell tweeted that, the EU embassy in Khartoum was attacked by gunmen and urged Sudan to respect the Vienna Convention.

Ethiopians living in Khartoum told Ethio Negari that the embassies of many countries, including Ethiopia, were also attacked.

Many countries of the world, including the United States and European Union, are urging the two warring parties to stop the conflict.

UN, on the other hand, said that there is no willingness to start negotiations between the fighting forces of Sudan.

Sudan has been in political turmoil since former President Omar Hassan al-Bashir was overthrown by force in 2019.

The people of Sudan have been calling for the establishment of a civilian-led government for years.

However, the Sudanese army has split into two and entered into a war to control power by force.
