TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Sudanese TV reported on Saturday that Sudan’s security and intelligence chief Salah Gosh has resigned.

Salah Gosh, the director of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), has decided to resign, Sudanese TV reported on Saturday.
“The chief of the transitional military council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, has accepted the resignation of… the chief of NISS”, the official statement of the military said, Sputnik reported.
The news comes just a day after head of the transitional council Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf decided to quit, appointing Army Chief of Staff Abdel-Fattah al-Burhan as the new chief.
During the recent rallies in the country, several NISS facilities were attacked by protesters. After the military took power in Sudan, the NISS announced that it was releasing all political prisoners across the country.
