Additional former rebels arrive in Darfur


SLFA fighters arrive in El-Fasher on 17 April 2021 (SUNA photo)April 17, 2021 (EL-FASHER) - The second batch of Sudan Liberation Forces Alliance (SLFA) arrived Saturday in the North Darfur capital El-Fasher.

The alliance is led by Tahir Hajar who is also a member of the Transitional Sovereign Council.

The forces led by Commander Abdallah Bashir Jali were welcomed by a number of military and civilian official of the North Darfur government.

According to the UN experts panel, the SLFA fighters were in Libya fighting along with the Libyan National Army of General Khalifa Haftar.

Al-Burhan Friday said the belated arrival of the armed groups in the country is one of the causes that delayed the implementation of the security arrangements.

Some SLFA fighters arrived last March in the capital following Minnawi forces. The move triggered sharp criticism for the two groups.

However, al-Burhan said that in line with the peace agreement every group has to bring 100 fighters who will receive a close protection course before joining the Sudanese army protection units.

He further said that another force arrived in Khartoum with special permission and would not remain for a long time before to praise their discipline and coordination with the army.
