    Authorities announced on Sunday that Germany has started to withdraw its people from Sudan.

    In close collaboration with the partners, the German Defense Ministry announced on Twitter that a military evacuation operation had begun.

    In light of the dangers in Sudan, our aim is to fly as many citizens out of Khartoum as we can. We will also bring additional nations, including EU citizens, if it is possible, the ministry stated.

    According to the newspaper Bild, German forces will evacuate 300 German individuals, including diplomats, workers for aid organizations, and businesspeople, on Sunday.

    A 72-hour cease-fire for the Muslim festival of Eid was not observed on Sunday, as fighting between opposing military units in Sudan persisted.

    Explosions and fighting have reportedly occurred, especially close to Khartoum’s presidential palace and military command center.

    Since conflict between the Sudanese army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces broke out on April 15, at least 413 people have died and more than 3,500 have been injured in Sudan.
