Since the commencement of the conflict, Egypt's national airline EgyptAir has ceased its air transportation services to and from Sudan's Khartoum International Airport.

Ongoing altercations persist between the Sudanese military and the paramilitary faction known as the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) within the metropolis of Khartoum and its surrounding municipalities, spanning a duration of nine consecutive days. The source of contention revolves around disagreement concerning the RSF's assimilation into the national army.

As per the health ministry of Sudan, the violent confrontations have resulted in a minimum of 424 fatalities and approximately 3,730 individuals sustaining injuries as of Saturday.
