Saudi Arabia and the United States jointly announced on Friday a 24-hour ceasefire in Sudan, involving the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
The ceasefire, set to commence on 10 June at 6:00 am local time, aims to alleviate the ongoing civil war and mitigate the escalating humanitarian crisis in the region.
The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement confirming the temporary cessation of hostilities.
The civil war in Sudan has had severe consequences, displacing over 1.4 million people within the country and forcing an additional 476,800 individuals to seek refuge in neighboring nations.
Previous efforts to establish a sustainable ceasefire have had limited success, as violence persisted despite partial reductions.
The current 24-hour ceasefire represents a renewed attempt to halt the conflict and promote stability in Sudan.
