Clashes erupted in parts of Sudan yesterday, Sunday, as the war between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF), and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) entered its 100th day, in light of the failure of mediation efforts by regional and international powers to find a way out of a conflict that has become intractable.

Fighting erupted in Sudan on April 15, wreaking havoc in the capital, Khartoum, and causing a sharp increase in ethnic violence in Darfur.

The war has displaced more than three million Sudanese, of whom more than 700,000 have fled to neighboring countries.

The Sudanese Ministry of Health says the fighting has killed around 1,136 people, but officials believe the number is higher.

Neither the army nor the Rapid Support Forces were able to achieve a decisive victory, as the RSF's dominance on the ground in the capital Khartoum collided with the army's air and artillery fire.

Infrastructure and government have collapsed in the capital while fighting has spread westward, particularly into the fragile region of Darfur, and further south, where the SPLM-N is trying to seize territory.

The state of famine in the country has reached its maximum, while more than two-thirds of hospitals are out of service.

With the onset of the rainy season, epidemics are expected to spread as they do every year, which will contribute to the exacerbation of the malnutrition crisis.
