Sudan: Protesters close Port Sudan airport for the second time

Al-Amoudiya, leader in the Beja Optical Council and Independent announced the closure of Port Sudan airport and the suspension of air traffic since this morning. He added that Port Sudan is now isolated “by land, sea and air.”

This comes amid protests against a peace agreement signed by politicians with the Sudanese government last year.

Al-Sudani newspaper quoted the decision of the Supreme Council of Beja Opticals and Independent Verticals, Abdullah Obshar, as confirming the closure of Port Sudan airport and the suspension of air navigation since Thursday morning.

In statements to the newspaper, Obshar said that Port Sudan has become isolated “by land, sea and air”, after the closure of land roads, sea ports and air navigation.

The Supreme Council of Beja Opticals announced the closure of Port Sudan city airport after announcing the closure of the port.

The Supreme Council of Beja and Independent Amaudiya is a gathering of civil leaders led by Sayed Muhammad Al-Amin Turk. This council rejects the eastern path of Sudan in the Juba Peace Agreement and calls on the government to cancel it.

And the process of closing Port Sudan city airport is the second closure of the vital ports in the city after the closure of the port to force the government to respond to their demands. A video from the council’s media page shows the moments of the reception of the Al-Ahly leader, Sayed Muhammad Al-Amin, who left to the airport to support his supporters who closed it.

On a second line, and in its comment on the statements of the President of the Sovereign Council in Sudan, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, after the failed coup attempt in Sudan, the “Forces of Freedom and Change” considered Al-Burhan and his deputy a threat to the path of democratic transition and an attempt to create a rift between the forces of the revolution and the army.

On Thursday, the “Forces of Freedom and Change” called for reforming the military and security establishment in Sudan.

Condemning the coup attempt, the Forces for Freedom and Change considered the attempt to abort as a result of the vigilance of the Sudanese, and what they called the army’s patriots, a demand to disclose the results of the investigation.

“We learned the lesson, and Al-Bashir’s coup is the last coup in Sudan,” Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said.

In response to Al-Burhan’s criticism of the political class, Hamdok said that the army that protected the revolutionaries in front of the General Command does not turn, and that the remnants are those who desire “apostasy,” explaining that those who turn and call for a coup are against the civil transition and are necessarily remnants.

Hamdok considered that the coup or the attempt to undermine the transition in any way has no reason other than the seizure of power.

The Prime Minister indicated that the government does not shirk its responsibilities towards the current situation and that it has completed files and failed in others. Hamdok also warned that any retreat from the requirements of the transition would be a heavy political, security and legal price.

He added that the way out of the current congestion is to adhere to achieving the goals of the transition and not to circumvent them.

Adviser to the Prime Minister of Sudan said that the letters of Al-Burhan and Hemeti had very strong indications of the presence of coup intentions, which made the popular and political forces try to mobilize, waiting for the outcome of this matter.

And the advisor to the Prime Minister of Sudan, Faisal Muhammad Salih, said in an interview with Al-Hadath channel, that whoever reads the history of Sudan knows that there is no longer any room for military rule in it.

The advisor to the Prime Minister of Sudan said that there are individuals in the military establishment who have ambitions to exploit the situation and that coups within the military must be confronted.
