On June 1, the Sudanese Doctors Committee issued a statement saying that a market in the Mayo area south of Sudan’s capital Khartoum was violently shelled on May 31, killing at least dozens of people and injuring 106.

According to data from the hospital receiving the casualties, 19 people have died in the shelling so far, and the death toll is expected to rise further. The hospital said that the current medical resources in Khartoum are extremely scarce, especially the lack of blood in the blood bank, and there is an urgent need for medical staff, nurses, and blood donors.

Armed clashes between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces broke out in the capital Khartoum and other places on April 15, and the clashes have continued to this day.

The two sides signed a temporary ceasefire agreement in the Saudi Red Sea port city of Jeddah on May 20 for a period of one week. On May 29, the two sides announced the extension of the temporary ceasefire agreement for five days. But during this period, the exchange of fire between the two sides in Khartoum and other places did not stop. The two sides repeatedly accused each other of violating the ceasefire agreement.
