The military council claimed that initial findings suggest there were a number of regime forces which are now held under the military’s custody.

The alliance called on people to stay home and abstain from work as a part of the civil and political disobedience to protect their colleagues and fulfil their aspirations until the MTC is dissolved and becomes a civilian-led government. The calls followed the military council crackdown against the Khartoum sit-in which resulted in the killing of dozens of protesters and injured hundreds. Protest leaders accused a militia belonging to the military council of killing protesters in a bloody dispersal of their sit-in.
