Khartoum (IP) – News sources reported that several Sudanese cities witnessed demonstrations against the military rule in the country on Saturday evening.

Iran PressAfrica: After the military coup in Sudan (October 2021), demonstrations continue in various cities, including Khartoum, and the violence of the army against the demonstrators has not prevented street protests.

Hundreds of people protested against the military rule in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, and the cities of Omdurman and Bahri.

According to the report, despite the large presence of security forces and police, the protesters blocked a number of main and secondary streets in the center of the capital by placing cement blocks and burning tires.

Demonstrators also held placards that read "No to military rule", "Civil government", "Freedom, peace and justice" and "Yes to civilian and democratic rule" chanting slogans against the military rule in Sudan.

Demonstrations against the interference of the military in the affairs of the civilian government have been held almost every day in various regions of Sudan since October last year.

On the morning of October 25 last year, Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and many Sudanese politicians were arrested and Hamdok was released the next day.

On November 21 of last year, the military who seized power through a coup reached an agreement with the Prime Minister of the dissolved government, Abdalla Hamdok, to return him to his post.
