Operation Kaveri: Safe move

“328 more passengers have landed in New Delhi. #OperationKaveri moving steadily forward as around 3000 have reached India now,” External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar tweeted.

In a bid to ensure safety to Indian nationals in conflict-torn Sudan, India government has started Operation Kaveri on April 24 and deployed its military planes and warships in the strife-torn country.

A flight carrying 231 Indian evacuees reached Gujarat’s Ahmedabad on Tuesday from Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah under ‘Operation Kaveri’, Jaishankar informed.

“Another #OperationKaveri flight lands in Ahmedabad. 231 more passengers have reached home safely,” the EAM tweeted.

Humanitarian crisis

Humanitarian coordinator of United Nation in Sudan alerted that the humanitarian crisis in Sudan is turning into a “full flown catastrophe” and that the risk of spillover into neighbouring countries was worrisome.

“It has been more than two weeks of devastating fighting in Sudan, a conflict that is turning Sudan’s humanitarian crisis into a full-blown catastrophe,” Abdou Dieng, Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in the country, told a briefing of member states via video link.

The United Nation warns that Sudan is at a humanitarian “breaking point”. Fighting is underway in Khartoum.

Rival military forces violated ceasefire rules every time and accuse each other of the violation of new ceasefire. Their strife has entered a third week and bloodshed and clashes between the army and paramilitary is continued.

Earlier, External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar on Sunday said that nearly 2300 evacuee Indians have reached the country.
