According to the available open sources and what was reported from our private sources and mobile volunteers in Sudan who can be classified as eyewitnesses, the battles continue in the three cities of Khartoum.

As for areas of control, in general, all the capitals of the 14 provinces, with the exception of the five provinces of Darfur and Khartoum, are under the control of the SAF. Which controls most of the Sudanese cities in the north, east, and the southeast side, and about 20% of the territories in Khartoum and in Omdurman. Where the control is shared with the Sudanese Armed Forces (ASF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in controlling (Khartoum – Omdurman – Al-Obeid – El-Fasher). The SAF also fully controls the cities in the north (Port Sudan – Atbara – Merowe – Dongola), in the east over (Kassala – Wad Madani – Gedarif – Sennar), in the south over (Damazin – Kadugli), and in the west over (Zalingel).
Despite the uncertainty about the situation in the 5 provinces in Darfur, only what was circulated about stopping the fighting with tribal agreements; however, it seems that the RSF control most of the cities of central-west and south-west Sudan (Kabkabia – Geneina – Foro Baranga – Nyala – Um Dafouk – El Daein), in addition to the cities in which the SAF share in control.
