"The continuation of the clashes led to more casualties in the capital Khartoum and some states," the Sudan Doctors Syndicate said in a statement. They stated that 822 civilians have been killed and 3,215 injured since the beginning of the clashes, including deaths in the capital Khartoum, El Ubeyd and El Jouneyne city in West Darfur state.

On the morning of April 15, armed clashes broke out between the Sudanese army and the NLD in Sudan's capital Khartoum and other cities. The World Health Organization announced that the number of deaths in the clashes increased to 604 and the number of wounded to 5,127.

The "Jeddah Declaration" was signed on May 11 as a result of the negotiations between the parties in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to stop the ongoing clashes between the army and the paramilitary RSF in Sudan.
