RSF Takes High Ground Over Sudanese Jebel Aulia Dam

Cell phone footage recorded by a young member of the RSF shows a platoon-sized element of fighters firing down on Sudanese military forces located near the Jebel Aulia Dam, which is roughly 40 kilometers south of the capital city of Khartoum.


The Sudanese Armed Forces have yet to comment on the situation, but according to the RSF they are now in full control of not only the Jebel Aulia Dam, but also a key bridge that allows them free access across the Nile River. If true, it is believed that follow-on targets for the Rapid Support Forces would be Ad Douiem and Abu Hibeira, however it is currently not believed that the RSF has the logistical capacity to conduct such operations at this time.


One of the larger fears is that the RSF could utilize the Dam as a weapon to flood Khartoum. For this reason alone the Sudanese military is unable to conduct bombing attacks as they don't know the current state of the Dam itself.


Here's a map of the attack that was published by Sudan War Monitor.
