Blame Game Ensues After Ethiopian Embassy in Khartoum Bombed

Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, witnessed a disturbing incident as the Ethiopian embassy became the target of a bombing. Both the Sudanese army and the rival paramilitary group, the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), have engaged in a blame game, each accusing the other party of carrying out the attack.

According to an employee of the Ethiopian embassy, the air strike occurred three weeks ago, resulting in the injury of a security guard and damage to the embassy’s windows. Fortunately, no casualties were reported during the incident, although the embassy building suffered partial damage, as stated by Yibeltal Ayimiro Alemu, Ethiopia’s ambassador to Sudan.

While the RSF, engaged in a long-standing battle with the Sudanese army since April 15, has pointed fingers at the army for the attack, the Sudanese army has remained silent regarding the raid that took place on Tuesday.

The ongoing conflict between the two factions has had devastating consequences, with the United Nations reporting over 5,000 deaths and five million people being displaced as a result of the fighting. The army, under the command of Gen Abdel Fattah Al Burhan, has employed air strikes and heavy artillery in Khartoum, causing significant civilian casualties since the conflict’s inception.

The RSF, infamous for its association with the Janjaweed militia from Darfur, has been accused of widespread theft and the mistreatment of residents in the city. Furthermore, the RSF and other Arab militias have faced allegations of targeting ethnic African groups in Darfur, resulting in hundreds of deaths and the displacement of numerous individuals from their homes.

The war has forced over five million people to flee their homes, with approximately one million seeking asylum in neighbouring countries, while millions remain trapped in Khartoum. Those in the capital endure prolonged water and power outages, inadequate healthcare, and escalating prices of food and gasoline.

During the early stages of the conflict, RSF soldiers resorted to storming and vandalising foreign embassies and international organisation headquarters, further exacerbating tensions and instability in the region.
