Khartoum, 15 April (Hindustan). The ongoing conflict between the military and paramilitary forces in power in Sudan has turned into a fierce violence. While the paramilitary forces have claimed possession of the Rashtrapati Bhavan, on the other hand, the airport has also come under the grip of arson. Many airplanes have been burnt.

Since the military coup in Sudan in 2021, there has been a conflict between the paramilitary Rapid Support Force (RSF) and the army. Now it has turned into gruesome violence. Gunshots and explosions were heard near the army headquarters in the Sudanese capital. RSF has spoken of taking control of the airport. Several airplanes were burned during the occupation of the airport. The army has said that RSF fighters are trying to capture the military headquarters. Army spokesman Brigadier General Nabil Abdallah said fighters from the Rapid Support Forces attacked several army camps in Khartoum and elsewhere around Sudan. Clashes are going on and the army is doing its duty to protect the country.

Meanwhile, there were also reports of firing from the northern city of Merov. Television channels have been seen broadcasting pictures of smoke rising from the military camp. RSF claims to be in full control of the presidential palace in the capital, Khartoum. The tussle between the Army and the RSF has been going on for more than a year and a half. The army did a coup in October 2021. Since then she has been running the country through the Sovereignty Council. The army is led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who heads the Sovereign Council. The RSF is commanded by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, Vice President of the Council. The Sudanese military believes that the RSF is a paramilitary force and should not be included in the army. This is also the reason for the latest clashes.
