Sudan deploys thousands of militiamen on border with Eritrea

Sudan has deployed thousands of government militia Rapid Support Forces (RSF) fighters to the eastern state of Kassala on the border with Eritrea.

Eyewitnesses in Kassala underscored the RSF militiamen on tanks and hundreds of vehicles with pintle-mounted weapons had arrived in the city on Thursday morning.

Sources told Sudan Tribune the RSF fighters were deployed in anticipation of internal Eritrean developments that could lead to a large wave of refugees hitting Sudan’s border.

While others claimed the purpose of the border closure is to prevent Darfur rebel elements and Ethiopia’s armed opposition fighters from infiltrating into Sudan’s territory due to these developments.
