Sudan army at risk of another disaster in Babanusa
RSF forces converge on West Kordofan town
The Rapid Support Forces yesterday launched a fierce attack on the headquarters of the 22nd Infantry Division in Babanusa, following two days of clashes on the town’s outskirts and inside neighborhoods.
The Sudanese army troops in the West Kordofan city are now outnumbered and cannot be easily reinforced. If they succeed in repulsing the attack, they would end a series of military disasters that the army has suffered at the hands of the renegade paramilitary, checking the RSF’s relentless advance through west and central Sudan.
Defeat, on the other hand, would add to the RSF’s military momentum while amplifying the army’s problems with morale and manpower.
