Every day, due to the ongoing armed conflict in Sudan, Sudanese families seek refuge in Egypt from the capital, Khartoum, on a road trip through a rugged and perilous desert road, a distance of about a thousand kilometers.

At the Al-Qastal border crossing with Egypt, Sudanese expatriates fill out arrival papers in front of the Egyptian customs offices, waiting for their documents and bags to be checked before continuing the journey to Aswan.

And with the fighting entering its fifth week (750 dead) between the army commander, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and the commander of the Rapid Support Forces, Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo, the terrible urban warfare continues in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and the two parties to the conflict met on Saturday in Saudi Arabia with the aim of preventing a humanitarian catastrophe that might befall Sudan.

Since the middle of last month, hundreds of thousands of Sudanese have been displaced, as half a million people fled from Khartoum alone, according to the United Nations, at a time when hospitals were bombed and looting was also rampant, while the population suffered from food shortages, power outages and the loss of medicines.

For its part, the United Nations announced that nearly 200,000 people have fled Sudan, in addition to hundreds of thousands of others who have been displaced to other regions. And pushed the exodus of Sudanese to neighboring countries such as Chad, South Sudan and Ethiopia, where the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) warned that relief operations are already suffering from a significant lack of funding.
