Description: The forces in the video are talking about their presence at the headquarters of the Armored Corps. However, after locating the site, it became evident that the location is outside the eastern side of the Armored Corps.
The first speaker in the video, an RSF soldier, introduced the second speaker as Hussein Mohammed Musa, an emir of the Fellata nomads of Blue Nile State. The latter noted that he was also the deputy commander of the Mainom Battalion (لواء ماينوم أو كتيبة ماينوم), which was part of the Popular Defense Forces in Blue Nile. “Our battalion is well-known, everybody knows it,” he said. He affirmed their full support for the RSF and also thanked “our mobile commander in Blue Nile, Abdelrahman Bisi.”
Additional context: Fellata tribal leaders in Darfur recently announced their support for the Rapid Support Forces.
