Sudan Crisis: El Fasher Under Siege as RSF Paramilitary Group Tightens Grip Amidst SAF Airstrikes

In recent developments, the city of El Fasher in Sudan finds itself encircled by the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) paramilitary group, resulting in a besieged state for both the population and the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) alongside allied militias. This escalation has further compounded the already dire humanitarian crisis in the region.

El Fasher, situated in the Darfur region, has served as a sanctuary for many displaced individuals from other areas of Darfur that have fallen under the control of the RSF. However, even within the city limits, reports indicate a surge in internal displacement as a result of ongoing conflicts. Residents have voiced concerns over the increased presence of SAF airstrikes, exacerbating the plight of those trapped within the city.

The RSF’s tightening grip around El Fasher has restricted movement and heightened tensions among the populace. With the encirclement, fears about the safety and welfare of civilians trapped within the city have intensified.

As the situation continues to unfold, the international community closely monitors the developments in El Fasher, with growing calls for immediate action to address the escalating crisis and ensure the protection of civilians caught in the crossfire.
