Has Sudan's Armed Forces Turned Tide of Battle in Country?

 The Middle East News Agency published on 21 March 2024 an article titled "Sudan's Army Aims to Build on Khartoum Victories but Risks Overextending" by Hamza Hendawi.

Following a series of early military victories in the Khartoum capital region, Darfur in the west, and to the south of Khartoum by the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) has recently had some limited military success in retaking ground from the RSF in Omdurman, across the Nile River from Khartoum.  SAF generals now say they plan to retake territory across Sudan, although some observers argue that the Army may overextend its capability.
