Saudi Arabia Allocates $100 Million in Aid to Sudan

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman directed the King Salman Relief Center to allocate humanitarian and medical aid worth $100 million to the Sudanese people.

Saudi Arabia has evacuated 31 Saudi citizens from war-torn Sudan as well as 1,143 people from other countries amid the ongoing conflict in the African country.

A total of 453 Yemeni and Sudanese evacuees arrived in Jeddah on Sunday, May 8th, aboard HMS Abha and HMS Riyadh.

Meanwhile, three Royal Saudi Air Force aircraft transported the Saudi citizens, and 690 nationals of Sudan, Lebanon, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kenya, Russia, and the US.

Sudan has been mired in internal strife since a conflict erupted between Sudan's army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) on April 15th.
