AhlulBayt News Agency - Sudan, since the rise of the Islamic Salvation Front to power in 1989, has established very strong ties with Iran and the resistant Palestinian groups and hosted such movements as Hamas and Islamic Jihad on its soil. Due to its Islamic and honorable stances, Sudan has undergone a great deal of difficulties. Despite the economic problems and domestic crises the nation has been suffering from, the country's support for Palestine is considered to be the main drive for the Sudanese to back the government of President Omar al-Bashir.

January 9, 2016 (NYALA) - A secret conference of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees leaders in Darfur has rejected a government plan to liquidate the camps for the internally displaced on the grounds that their areas of origin were still unsafe.

The participants considered the return to their original villages and localities before the normalization of the situation and the provision of peace therein as "a semblance of suicide".

Deputy chairman of the IDPs and refugees association Adam Abdallah said leaders of refugees and IDPs from all Darfur’s five states camps had met last week in Kalma Camp , 15 km East of Nyala , capital of South Darfur State, to discuss what they called "Government propaganda" about the return of refugees and IDPs and the closure of the camps.

Saudi-Iran stand-off

LARKANA: The execution of 47 people, including scholar Sheikh Nimr Al-Nimr, by Saudi Arabia has raised regional as well as international concerns. The action of Iranian protestors in attacking the Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran in response to Al-Nimr’s execution resulted in the recall of diplomats by Saudi Arabia from Iran, followed by its Arab allies Kuwait, Bahrain and Sudan doing the same.

This issue has arisen at a time when a road map to peace had been established in Syria and a ceasefire had been called in Yemen. Across the Middle East, both Iran and Saudi Arabia have a long history of supporting proxies and political conflicts against each other. This latest crisis would undoubtedly undermine any ongoing initiatives for peace in a war-torn region where thousands of people have died due to sectarian violence and at the hands of the Islamic State.
