The security apparatus in Khartoum celebrated the graduation of a new batch of Rapid Support Forces (RSF) last Wednesday.

The RSF are commanded by the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), which celebrated the graduation of the paramilitaries in Khartoum on Wednesday.

Maj. Gen. Ali El Nasih El Gala, NISS director of operations director, said in his speech that the current batch consists of 1,217 troops who have been trained for eight months on all combating operations.

According to NISS director-general Lt. Col. Mohamed Atta El Moula, they were trained to “crush the rebellion in Darfur and South Kordofan”.

He also said that the graduates will “support the rehabilitation of services’ projects for the sake of peace and stability.

“This batch will travel directly to Darfur to contribute in reconstructing what the insurgents have destroyed.”
