Sudan's representative to the UN Security Council, Al-Harith Idris, has accused Haftar's forces of being involved in providing support to one of the parties to the conflict in Khartoum.

Idris added in a briefing to the Security Council yesterday that the Subul al-Salam battalion, which is stationed in the city of Kufra in the south of the country, provided logistical support of ammunition and mortar shells to Hemedti’s Rapid Support Forces through the ammunition stores of the 106th Brigade, led by Khaled Haftar.

The delegate also revealed the use of “mercenaries” from Chad, south-eastern Libya, to move towards Sudan.

The delegate accused the UAE of being involved in fueling the conflict and strengthening the crisis taking place in Sudan and the region in general, as he put it.
