The Sudanese army called on political forces planning to demonstrate on Monday to stay away from the headquarters of the armed forces in Khartoum and the various positions of its forces in the country.
The warning comes after calls by Islamist groups to demonstrate on the 55th anniversary of the 21 October Revolution to demand the army seize power and remove Forces for Freedom and Change from power.
In a statement issued on Sunday evening, Sudanese army spokesman Brigadier General Amer Mohamed al-Hassan renewed the support of the Sudan Armed Forces for the December Revolution and recalled that peace will not be achieved without political stability in the country.
Al-Hassan also stressed that the armed forces will remain a “faithful guardian of the country”, but will not interfere in political practices.
Accordingly, he stressed that the demonstrators “must stay away from military sites, headquarters in Khartoum state and other states in order to preserve the neutrality the armed forces and its national character,” he added.
