Turkey urged the warring factions in Sudan to immediately cease fire on humanitarian grounds for civilians caught in the conflict zone.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Ankara is following with concern the clashes that erupted between the army and paramilitary forces in Sudan.

Al-Turki urged the two sides to stop the fighting to avoid further bloodshed and harm to civilians, stressing that a permanent solution to the existing problems can come through dialogue and consensus.

“We stress the importance of urgently declaring a humanitarian ceasefire and complying with the ceasefire in order to extend a helping hand to civilians affected by the conflict. In this regard, we affirm that we, as Turkey, are ready to provide all kinds of support.”

Earlier on Tuesday, a two-year-old Turkish child was killed in the ongoing clashes in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum.

Fighting broke out on Saturday between the Sudanese army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces in and around the capital, Khartoum.

Since then, at least 185 people have been killed and 1,800 injured in armed clashes between the two military rivals, according to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
