FOOD & MEDICINE SUPPLIES RUNNING LOW IN SUDAN’S KHARTOUM AS FIGHTING RAGES Air strikes and artillery have killed at least 459 people, wounded more than 4,000

Food supplies, gas and medicine are running low in Sudan’s capital of Khartoum, local businesses said, warning it could be “catastrophic” if the fighting between Sudan’s army and a paramilitary force continued.

In a supermarket in Khartoum, shelves and fridges were empty on Wednesday. Only a few boxes of vegetables were available for people to purchase. 

A nearby bakery was closed and a gas station was empty.

Khartoum resident Medhat said he was struggling for days to find an open pharmacy. 

Almost non-stop fighting between the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and the armed forces since April 15 has turned residential areas into battlefields.

Air strikes and artillery have killed at least 459 people, wounded more than 4,000, destroyed hospitals and limited food distribution in a nation where a third of its 46 million people rely on humanitarian aid.
