Saudi Arabia successfully evacuated 1,866 people from Sudan on Saturday, including 20 Saudi citizens and residents of 65 other nations, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced.

The ship transported these evacuees from Port Sudan on the east coast of Sudan to the Saudi King Faisal navy base in Jeddah. 

The evacuees were transported via a Saudi-flagged ship named “Amanah".

The evacuees were from Thailand, Australia, Rwanda, Gambia, Eritrea, Malawi, North Macedonia, France, India, Norway, Palestine, Yemen, US, Syria, Philippines, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Sweden, Kenya, Tunisia, Iraq, Libya, Morocco, Jordan, Mauritania, Tanzania, Iran, Pakistan, and many other countries. 

The total number of individuals evacuated from Sudan by Saudi Arabia has now reached 4,879 with this operation, according to the ministry, which includes 139 Saudis and 4,738 people from 96 different nationalities.

Saudi Arabia has received appreciation from the Muslim World League (MWL) for its important humanitarian and diplomatic contributions to the Sudan conflict. Saudi is recognized in particular for the effective evacuation of citizens from several friendly and Islamic nations, including ambassadors, government representatives, as well as workers of international organizations.
