Khartoum (IP)- The Sudanese protesters stressed that they would not surrender to the army and continue the demonstrations until the overthrow of the government deriving from the Military Coup.

Iran PressAfrica: Millions of Sudanese, especially young people, demonstrated on May 19 in Khartoum, the capital city of Sudan, calling for the military to step down.

Sudanese security and military forces used tear gas, sound bombs, and rubber bullets to disperse protesters, injuring dozens.

Earlier, Sudanese resistance committees in Khartoum called for demonstrations to overthrow the government of General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.

The military forces also detained several resistance committee leaders during the protests.

"Despite the repression and killing of protesters by the army, we can achieve our goals, and we will not give up," Ali Abdul Azim, a protester, told Iran Press.

"Our message to the army is to stand by the people and work with them to overthrow the military government," he stressed.

"We call on the political parties to unite with the people and stand by the Sudanese resistance committees to form a civil government and bring justice and stability to the people," said Ashraf al-Tayeb, another protester.
