Fighting rages at military site facility
Sudanese army soldiers and paramilitaries yesterday fought for control of a military facility in Khartoum where a fire raged at an oil and gas facility, witnesses said. The battles came a day after the powerful paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) announced in a statement they had wrestled "full control" of the Yarmouk weapons manufacturing and arms depot complex. Witnesses speaking to AFP from southern Khartoum said they heard the "sound of gunfire and clashes" around the complex, the most important military industrial facility in the country. The RSF claimed that soldiers had fled the site, leaving behind large quantities of military equipment and vehicles.
