Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan arrives in Port Sudan

Sudan coup

Chairman of Sudan’s Sovereign Council and General Commander of the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF), Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, on Sunday made a rare public appearance in Port Sudan, the capital city of the Red Sea State in eastern Sudan.

The press office of the sovereign council published photos of Al-Burhan’s arrival in Port Sudan, with captions saying “The arrival of the President of the Sovereign Council, Commander of the (Sudanese) Armed Forces, to Port Sudan city.”

On Aug. 24, Al-Burhan showed up for the first time outside the headquarters of the SAF’s General Command and the Ministry of Defense since the war broke out in mid-April, where he inspected the army’s outposts in the city of Omdurman, north of the capital Khartoum.

Sudan has been witnessing deadly armed clashes between the SAF and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in Khartoum and other areas since April 15, which left over 3,000 people killed and more than 6,000 injured, according to the Sudanese Health Ministry.

More than 4 million people have fled their homes — 3.2 million people were displaced internally and close to 900,000 have crossed the border into Chad, Egypt, South Sudan and other countries, according to the latest UN estimates.
