Breaking: Sudanese MiG-29 Engages RSF Positions in Battle for Nation's Capital

Cell phone video recorded in Khartoum, the capital city of Sudan, shows a Sudanese Air Force MiG-29 engaging the paramilitary Rapid Security Forces that have taken control of the Presidential Palace and Khartoum's international airport.


As of this morning, the Capital City of Sudan is an active war zone. Rapid Security Forces, who are known by their acronym as the RSF, claimed that they have stormed the international airport, presidential palace, and several smaller military installations inside of the city. The Sudanese military however has refuted these claims stating that they gained control over RSF leadership "without resistance" and had struck RSF bases, and began chasing after paramilitary units in the area. The Sudanese military has denied all claims that the RSF is in control of key terrain inside of the capital city.


The United States and United Kingdom embassies located in Khartoum have ordered all personnel to shelter in place inside of their embassies. They have also put out calls to citizens in Sudan to shelter in place where they are as well as violence is erupting throughout the city. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said he was "deeply concerned" about the reports of violence and called for it to end "immediately."


For those who are out of the loop on current trends in Sudanese politics, I don't blame you. In 2019, there was a joint coup between the Sudanese Military and the Rapid Security Forces. After both factions took control of the government, there was a loosely held alliance however recent escalations have occurred over disagreements in restructuring the military, which was seen as a prerequisite to forming a new civilian government.


This is a volatile and developing situation. We will continue to cover the situation in Sudan as it changes.
