Sudan forces seize large weapons haul near Ethiopia

ADDIS ABEBA – Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have seized significant amounts of weapons, ammunition and military equipment on its eastern border with Ethiopia, the official SUNA news agency reported.

The RSF, in an announcement on Saturday, said its forces seized weapons included a number of mortar rounds and assault weapons in Kassala state near Ethiopian boarder, said the report.

“The weapons were seized as part of the operations carried out by the security forces these days on the border line in anticipation of any security threat,” it said.

The RSF did not specify the threat to security. However, fighting has raged for three weeks in neighboring Ethiopia between federal troops and forces of the northern Tigray region.
