The Sudanese regular army (SAF) has asked for reinforcements to increase the military response in the ongoing fighting in and around Khartoum against the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and presumably prepare a new offensive. This was reported by "Al Jazeera", quoting local sources according to which reinforcement troops were seen in the south of the capital but where the RSF have also increased their presence. The military movements of both sides have increased the fear of an escalation in fighting that would further aggravate the already dramatic humanitarian and hospital situation among the remaining inhabitants of Khartoum and neighboring Omdurman. Furthermore, for two days in Khartoum the Sudanese army has been trying to take control of a military base conquered by the RSF, while the inhabitants of the surrounding area have been advised to stay as far away as possible from this point.

Fighting also continued to rage elsewhere in Khartoum State and Darfur, escalating despite US-imposed sanctions after the non-compliance with yet another ceasefire declared by representatives of the parties meeting in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where they long talks held - now suspended - mediated by Washington and Riyadh. Witnesses on the spot confirmed that fighter planes are also flying over Omdurman and that air raids have been carried out by the army on other RSF positions in northern Khartoum.

According to the latest, uncertain reconstructions, it would seem that the army of General Abdel Fattah al Burhan is preparing to launch a new offensive in the capital, in an attempt to recover portions of territory conquered by the RSF, led by General Mohamed Hamdan "Hemeti" Dagalo . The latter, dismissed from the role of vice president of the Sudanese Sovereign Council, is not issuing statements on the developments of the conflict. Meanwhile, the humanitarian situation worsens. According to the United Nations World Food Program (WFP), some 15.400 tonnes of food aid destined for West Darfur have been looted since the conflict began on 15 April.
