The death toll from the ongoing clashes since Saturday in Khartoum and 7 other cities in Sudan has risen to about 185, and the wounded to more than 2,000, according to Sky News Arabia sources on Monday night.

Khartoum turned into a "ghost town" after 3 days of battles between the army and the Rapid Support Forces, as it became difficult for residents to move around to meet their needs in light of the aerial bombardment and violent clashes on the ground.

The "Sky News Arabia" correspondent said that the shrapnel of the fighting affected a number of major hospitals in the Sudanese capital, confirming that at least 3 of them were out of service.

The Sudanese Central Committee of Doctors painted a bleak picture of the humanitarian situation and said that the death toll is increasing among civilians inside and outside Khartoum, pointing to the accumulation of corpses in the streets amid great difficulties in reaching them.

In addition to the dangerous security conditions that impede the work of ambulance teams, most hospitals suffer from an acute shortage of medical staff and aid.
