The ongoing conflict in Sudan has intensified further, leading to countries sending in emergency planes to evacuate diplomats and their citizens. American fighter planes reportedly carried evacuation of diplomats throughout Monday night. The situation in Sudan is rapidly deteriorating, and the world is watching with concern as violence escalates.
According to media reports, the Indian government is taking steps to ensure the safety of its citizens stranded in Sudan amid intense fighting. The media reports said two Indian Air Force aircraft are on standby in Saudi Arabia to evacuate Indians from Sudan. In addition, the Indian government has been closely monitoring the situation in Sudan and has been in touch with its embassy in Khartoum to assist Indian nationals.
It is worth noting that the conflict in Sudan is not a new development. The country has been embroiled in various conflicts and civil wars for decades, displacing millions and causing significant loss of life. The ongoing conflict in Sudan is a tragic reminder of the toll war and violence can take on a country and its people.
As the situation in Sudan continues to evolve, the international community needs to remain engaged and supportive of efforts to end the conflict. The Indian government’s efforts to evacuate its citizens from the conflict zone are a testament to its commitment to ensuring the safety and security of its citizens. The world must work together to find a peaceful resolution to the situation in Sudan so that the people living there can begin rebuilding their lives and moving forward.
Another media report said that two French military aircraft have already evacuated 388 people, including Indians, from Sudan. This evacuation was carried out after a request from the Indian government. The French army aircraft reportedly flew to Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, to evacuate the stranded individuals, many of whom were Indian nationals.
“As part of our preparations, and in order to move swiftly, the Government of India is pursuing multiple options. Two Indian Air Force C-130J are currently positioned on standby in Jeddah. And, INS Sumedha has reached Port Sudan,” a statement from the Indian Ministry of External Affairs on Sunday said.
The conflict in Sudan has been ongoing for several years, with various factions vying for power and control. According to UN figures, the latest violence between government forces and rebels in the capital, Khartoum, has led to the deaths of at least 420 people, and more than 860 have been injured. The situation in Sudan is complex, and the conflict has taken a severe toll on the people living in the country.
Sudan’s rival leaders have pledged to evacuate their citizens and others from the war-torn country. The report states that the rival leaders have agreed to work together to evacuate their citizens, foreign diplomats and other individuals in the country. The agreement is a significant development in the ongoing conflict in Sudan and provides hope for a peaceful resolution.
The Indian government has been closely monitoring the situation in Sudan and has been in touch with its embassy in Khartoum to assist Indian nationals. The government has also been working closely with other governments to ensure the safe evacuation of its citizens from the conflict zone.
The situation in Sudan remains volatile, and those in the country must prioritize their safety and security. However, the ongoing conflict in Sudan has significantly impacted the people living there, and the international community must do all it can to ensure that the battle ends. The recent agreement between Sudan’s rival leaders to evacuate their citizens and others from the country is a significant development and provides hope for a peaceful resolution.
“Contingency plans are in place, but any movement on the ground would depend on the security situation, which continues to be volatile with reports of fierce fighting at various locations in Khartoum,” the MEA said in its statement. (IPA Service)
