CAIRO – 19 April 2023: Egypt’s Armed forces confirmed in statement, Wednesday that they are coordinating with all parties in Sudan to secure the return of the Egyptian forces safely to the country.

The military spokesperson said that a detailed-statement will be issued within the coming hours regarding the Egyptian troops.

Earlier on Wednesday, Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces declared the transfer of Egyptian troops - who have been in the country as part of joint exercises with the Sudanese Army - to the capital, Khartoum, from Merwy Airport.

The militia assured - in its statement – the troops' families and the Egyptian people about the safety of the soldiers, saying it would turn them back once the circumstances are convenient.

 Arab League (AL) Secretary-General Ahmed Abul Gheit called, Wednesday on warring parties in Sudan to stop the fighting during the days of Eid al Fitr holiday, to enable civilians to respond to urgent humanitarian cases.

"It is heartrending to see Sudanese brothers celebrate Eid al Fitr frightened at their homes, in fear of their lives, with children, sick and elderly people living among them, while the fighting goes on, leading to loss of life and unbearable suffering among civilians," Abul Gheit said in a humanitarian appeal to the leaders of the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) the Rapid Support Forces (RAF) on Wednesday.

Abul Gheit said his purely humanitarian appeal has nothing to do with any political stance towards the crisis in Sudan or who must be held accountable for igniting hostilities or sustaining hostilities.
