SAF increasing Antonov planes taking off from El Fasher
Residents residing near El Fasher airport in North Darfur have said the Sudanese air force has increased the number of Antonov planes leaving the base on an hourly basis from last Thursday until Monday afternoon.
Witnesses told Radio Dabanga that the increase is starkly noticeable and has drawn the attention of residents for the first time.
The head of the Darfur Regional Authority Tijani Sissi said there are armed movements in North Darfur preparing to carry out operations, with the purpose of undermining the implementation of the Darfur Document for Peace.
As a regional authority he said it is their duty to enforce the peace agreement and maintain security in the area.
Military spokesman for the Sudan Liberation Movement led by Minni Minawi, Adam Salih Ab Bakr accused Sissi of forgoing the Darfur cause and transforming into a ‘mouthpiece’ for the National Congress Party.
He described the peace agreement as false and added that Sissi will have to bear responsibility for his statements.
