The head of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF), Hadi Idriss, said that the Front has nothing to do with the ongoing conflicts in eastern Sudan.
Idriss, in a statement, called on the citizens of eastern Sudan to avoid sedition, stop the tribal fighting, and miss the opportunity to remnants of the former regime; who want to drag the country towards violence.
“We condemn all forms of violence, and anyone who wants to drag the country into a cycle of tribal violence.”, he added.
The Red Sea State Security Committee decided at an emergency meeting to impose a curfew in Port Sudan from 5 pm to 5 am.
Meanwhile, the Sudan Central Doctors Committee said in a statement posted on Facebook that the deadly events in the city of Port Sudan left 24 injuries and three deaths.
