149 Pakistanis Fleeing Sudan Land in Karachi

On Friday, the first group of Pakistanis rescued from Sudan, where a dispute between the army and terrorists has caused numerous deaths landed in Karachi.

According to the Foreign Office (FO), the first group of 149 Pakistanis evacuated from Sudan, where conflict between the army and paramilitaries has killed and injured hundreds, arrived in Karachi on Friday.

It said that the safe evacuation and return of every Pakistani was a “top priority” and stated that the first group of 149 Pakistanis removed from Sudan had arrived in Karachi.

Through Jeddah, the stranded Pakistanis were flown out of Sudan by Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Airbus and C-130 Hercules planes.

Air Chief Marshal has directed the PAF transport aircraft to quickly evacuate trapped Pakistanis from conflict-torn Sudan in accordance with the prime minister’s instructions.

Today’s arrival of a second plane, transporting Pakistanis from the Republic of Sudan, is also anticipated.

In cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Pakistan’s embassies in Sudan and Saudi Arabia, the PAF has been working to return trapped Pakistanis.

The rescued families thanked the government and the Pakistan Air Force for their prompt intervention amid the rapidly worsening circumstances in Sudan after reaching Pakistan successfully.

A PAF spokesperson stated that the Pakistan Air Force was committed to bringing their hurting brothers and sisters back to their country from Sudan.

On 15 April, violence erupted in Sudan among Abdel Fattah al-Burhan’s army chief allies and his challenger and former deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, who is in charge of the potent paramilitary Rapid Support Forces.

Based on data from the health ministry, a minimum of 512 people have died and 4,193 have been injured during the violence in Sudan, however, the real number of fatalities is probably far higher.

A three-day truce among the warring generals was mediated by the US last Tuesday, but witnesses claimed it was routinely broken.

The evacuation process has been going on despite the fighting. The FO said on Wednesday that a ship carrying 37 Pakistani citizens had arrived in Jeddah from the Port of Sudan. The ship carried 1,687 passengers from over 50 different countries, making it the Gulf state’s greatest rescue operation to date.
