    The Sudanese Armed Forces has opened fire on the vehicle of Turkish Ambassador

    MEDIA STATEMENT

    May 6, 2023

    The Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) has opened fire on the vehicle of Turkish Ambassador to Sudan Ismail Cubanoglu.

    This most recent attack is yet another blatant violation of international norms and agreements protecting diplomatic missions by the SAF.

    Backed by members of the regime of former dictator and military officer Omar al-Bashir, the SAF continues to ignore international and humanitarian norms and laws.

    The shooting occurred despite prior coordination regarding evacuation efforts and the fact that the embassy premises are under the control of the SAF.

    Despite these attacks, the Rapid Support Forces managed to successfully evacuate the ambassador and his delegation to safety.

    We remain committed to democracy and a civilian-led government and reiterate our dedication to safeguarding diplomatic missions in compliance with the Geneva Convention and all other international agreements.
