US Sanctions Sudanese Companies for Funding Conflict

The United States Treasury has placed sanctions on three Sudanese corporations accused of supporting the country’s disastrous war.

The organizations targeted include Alkhaleej Bank and Al-Fakher Advanced Works, both controlled by the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

Additionally, Zadna International, which is tied to the Sudanese army, faces penalties, according to a notice issued by the US Treasury Department on Wednesday.

According to the Treasury Department, all three companies have contributed to Sudan’s loss of peace, security, and stability by engaging in activities such as money laundering and fundraising through gold exports.

These measures are part of a larger strategy aimed at ending the nine-month violence, which has claimed over 12,000 lives and prompted nearly eight million people to abandon their homes, according to UN reports.

On Tuesday, Sudanese army chief General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan called for a full-scale offensive against the RSF, dismissing diplomacy as fruitless.

The US government and several civil rights groups have accused both the Sudanese army and the RSF of war crimes, which both parties have strenuously denied. The situation remains complex as international efforts to alleviate Sudan’s terrible humanitarian catastrophe increase.
