Map: RSF's attack on the Armored Corps headquarters, August 20-21
Heavy fighting at the besieged base in southwest Khartoum
This map showing the approximate situation at Armored Corps (“Al Shajara”) after two days of fighting, August 20-21. The Rapid Support Forces overran outer defenses on August 20 before entering eastern portions of the base August 21.
However, by evening of the 21st the RSF withdrew from at least some of their captured positions in the base for fear of airstrikes. They likely spent the night in the adjoining neighborhoods, with the intention of resuming the attack in the morning.
The map is based largely on geolocated conflict videos from the past two days, as well as prior background knowledge of force dispositions in the area prior to the fighting.
