Four suspected Islamic State-linked militants, one Sudanese soldier were killed and three security forces members were injured in Monday’s raid during clashes in Sudan’s capital Khartoum, state news agency SUNA reported.
This comes days after a raid on what officials said was an Islamic State-linked cell in the same area.
Monday’s raid included two sites and security forces arrested four other suspected militants, a day after they captured eight “foreign elements” in a raid in Omdurman, the capital’s twin city, on Sunday, SUNA said.
Also, five members of the General Intelligence Service were killed and a sixth injured on Tuesday following a raid where 11 suspects of different nationalities were arrested, the service said.
Although Sudan has been a haven for militant groups, such incidents involving suspected militants are relatively rare in the country.
