The Sudanese Rapid Response Force announced its control of the Republic Palace (the presidential palace) in Khartoum, the international airport of the capital, and the air base in Meroe, in the north of the country. In a wide-ranging statement, the Rapid Response Force accused the country’s regular army of attacking its base in the capital with “using all kinds of weapons”.
The Sudanese army said the statements of the Rapid Response Forces were incorrect and that all strategic facilities, including the presidential palace, were under the control of the armed forces. The army team also indicated that the SBR forces attacked them first. The army and the Sudanese General Security Service described the Rapid Response Forces as a rebel force and accused them of attacking government and strategic facilities. The head of Sudan’s Transitional Sovereignty Council and Commander-in-Chief of the country’s armed forces, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, issued a decision to dissolve the Rapid Response Forces.
