Sudan’s armed groups declare six-month unilateral cessation of hostilities

Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) has declared a six- month unilateral cessation of hostilities, and urged African Union mediators to organize a meeting with the government to make it effective.

In October 2016, armed groups from Darfur region, Blue Nile and South Kordofan states announced an unilateral six-month truce. However, since the end of last year, the fighting has been raging in the Two Areas with no end in sight.
