Description: At the beginning of the video, a group of RSF is seen in Al Doha neighborhood near Al Wajah Street heading east. In the next shot they appear north of Omdurman Al Ahlia University and are still heading east. Then the speaker talks about seizing a shipment of food supplies that was intended for SAF’s Assistant Commander-in-Chief Lt Gen Yasser Al-Atta in Al-Mohandeseen (“Engineers”). Due to the RSF' siege on the area, he says, the defenders will be starved until Yasser Al-Atta surrenders to them. They are waiting for their leader's signal to hand over the Al-Mohandeseen to him. Al-Atta appeared recently in a video in Al-Mohandesseen area.
Additional context: These clips were filmed about 1-2 kilometers from the nearest neighborhood controlled by the army, Banat Sharq. Geolocated combat footage shows clashes took place east of these locations in early August. Previous smuggling operations succeeded in bringing some reinforcements into Al-Mohandiseen, but it is difficult for the army to bring supplies by road due to RSF control of neighborhoods separating the base from SAF territory in northern Omdurman.
