He pointed out in a statement to SUNA that the RSF have been chasing and mopping up the areas looking out for remnants of the fleeing troops in the North Darfur and East Darfur axes and that the engagement was still underway.

He described Ein Siro as one of the most difficult area to enter in but that the RSF were able to enter by the sheer will of its youth and gallant forces.
