Satellite imagery triggers fear of military action in Sudan

Washington: New satellite imagery shows that the government of Sudan is maintaining infantry troops in the demilitarized border zone between Sudans. The troops are apparently armed with tanks and artillery.

In June, Satellite Sentinel Project report said that an apparent Sudan Armed Forces military installation in that location remains occupied with a reinforced infantry company. DigitalGlobe images taken during the first and second week of July show military presence in the Safe Demilitarized Border Zone (SBDZ) in the Sudanese towns of Keri Kera and al Miqenis. ” The presence of Sudanese troops in the Safe Demilitarized Border Zone raises the chance that this border flashpoint could be the spark for renewed armed conflict,” said Mark Quarterman, Enough Project Director of Research.
