The SAF Spokesperson said that the Sudan Armed Forces support and consolidate the SRDF due to the latter’s professionalism.

Earlier, some media outlets disseminated allegations pertaining to an alleged report attributed to the Security Council’s Panel of Experts of the International Sanctions Committee on Libya that Sudan despatched last July 1,000 troops to Libya to support the Libyan National Army (LNA) forces in the face of the Tripoli-based Government of National  Accord (GNA), according to an unpublished report by the United Nations.
