Control Map of the Bridges of Khartoum
SAF and RSF each control different bridges in Sudan's capital
This map indicates which side has control over which bank of each bridge in Sudan’s capital, whether the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) or the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
Of the four bridges connecting Omdurman and the other two sister cities of the capital (Khartoum and Khartoum Bahri), only the Shambat Bridge is usable. The other bridges are contested. The SAF have attempted crossings of the Halfaya Bridge in Omdurman, but these attempts did not secure a durable bridgehead.
On the Blue Nile, each side controls one bridge connecting Khartoum and Bahri, while the Kober Bridge is contested. The roads and onramps approaching that bridge can be fired on by both sides, so neither side can use it without considerable danger.
RSF control the only bridge connecting Khartoum and East Nile (Manshia Bridge).
Outside of Khartoum, the Armed Forces control all the bridges, including in Atbara, which the army uses to reinforce northern Omdurman.
