The army is standing at the entrance and exit of the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, in response to a series of news about the arrests of the ministers, reports the daily Sudan Ajbar.

For its part, the Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) posted a post on its Facebook page calling on the neighborhoods “resistance committees” to face the military and “take to the streets and occupy them completely” the face of the “Military coups”.

They also warned that “the coup plotters are preparing to shut down the Internet” and telephone services after arresting “most of the members of the Cabinet and the Sovereign Council”.

“We ask the resistance committees and the professional, trade union, political, demanding and revolutionary people’s forces to prepare and activate the instruments of communication, coordination and proven ground networks,” they said.

As a result, citizens in Khartoum took to the streets and burned tires, thus erecting barricades in the streets of the north of the capital in protest against the arrests, says Alarabiya.

In mid-September, Sudan was the scene of an attempted coup led by a group of officers from the remnants of the old regime, according to the transitional authorities.

The transitional authorities were established following an agreement between the military junta following the coup that overthrew Omar Hasan al Bashir in April 2019 and various civil organizations and opposition political formations.

This government has launched a series of social and economic reforms – some of which have caused public unrest, such as the withdrawal of subsidies – and signed a peace agreement with key rebel groups in Darfur and other parts of the country.
