American and Saudi mediators Saturday announced a new three-day ceasefire agreement between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
Implementation of the peace agreement has been sluggish. The elections, originally scheduled for this year, were postponed until December 2024. Other key elements of the deal have not been implemented, sparking concern that the country could see a return to war instead of a transfer of power.
While Saturday marked the calmest day since the conflict began, fighting resumed on Sunday with renewed intensity.
