Rapid Support Forces deployed along Sudanese-Eritrean border

The Sudanese government deployed thousands of paramilitaries belonging to the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) along the border with Eritrea last week. On Saturday, the Governor of Kassala ordered the closure of all border crossings in the state.

“Thousands of RSF troops riding in hundreds of Land Cruisers and tanks arrived in the eastern part of the state since Wednesday afternoon,” A listener told Radio Dabanga from Kassala on Friday.
