An official in the Rapid Support Forces stated, on Monday evening, that the deputy head of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, the commander of the forces, decided to transfer a number of armored vehicles from North Darfur state to Khartoum, “in anticipation of any emergency.” According to what was reported by the Sudan Tribune newspaper.
The official added that about 14 armored vehicles arrived in the city of El Fasher on Monday from a base of the Rapid Support Forces on the border with Libya.
He also indicated that the arrival of the armored vehicles was accompanied by high security measures and the extensive deployment of rapid support vehicles.
“A decision was issued by the leadership to transfer armored vehicles to Khartoum as part of plans to deploy forces in the capital during the last period,” said the official, who preferred not to be named.
The newspaper stated that Khartoum witnessed, during the last few period, an influx of large numbers of army fighters and the Rapid Support Forces from separate parts of Sudan, and their arrival coincided with statements and counter statements between the leaders of the two parties.
It is noteworthy that the Rapid Support Forces define themselves as “nationally formed military forces operating under the command of the Commander-in-Chief, with the aim of upholding the values of loyalty to God and the homeland, and adhering to the principles of the armed forces,” noting that they operate under “a law approved by the National Council in 2017.”
The forces have headquarters and centers in the capital, Khartoum, and in some other cities, in addition to the borders with Libya and Eritrea to monitor the borders and stop the flow of migrants.
