64 Sudanese soldiers (Red Cross) were freed by the Rapid Support Force.

“This Monday facilitated the release of 64 prisoners from the Sudan Armed Forces who were being held by rapid support forces,” the group said in a statement.

He added, “The freed persons were transferred from Khartoum to Wat Madani (200 km south of the capital) based on the request of both sides to the conflict that the international team take on the role of neutral mediator in the process.”

Since the outbreak of war in mid-April, the humanitarian organization has facilitated regular prisoner transfers and exchanges between the military and rapid support forces.

The fighting between regular forces led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Rapid Support Forces led by Muhammad Hamdan Daghlo has killed more than nine thousand people – according to a United Nations report – and displaced more than 5.6 million people and destroyed much of the infrastructure. .

Representatives of the two military leaders are currently in Jeddah, where they have resumed talks under the auspices of the US and Saudi Arabia.

According to the Saudi Foreign Ministry, the talks aim to “facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid, achieve a ceasefire, confidence-building measures and the possibility of a permanent cessation of hostilities,” but they “do not resolve issues of a political nature.”

Previous attempts at mediation resulted in only brief skirmishes that were systematically overruled.

NGOs accuse both camps of running detention centers where prisoners – militants or civilians – are subjected to ill-treatment.

Since the outbreak of fighting, the International Committee of the Red Cross has facilitated “the release and transfer of 292 prisoners” related to the conflict.
