05.01.15

Attacks by the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces, as well as fighting with armed groups from the Sudan Liberation Movement in East Jebel Marra, has resulted in an estimated 45,000 persons having been displaced from 45 villages. 

Of the 45 villages, SUDO UK Monitors have noted that 15 have been completely destroyed having been looted, whilst the other 30 have been looted and evacuated by the inhabitants. Civilians have fled to Tawila, Duma, Tabit, Zamzam, and Shangel Tobaye.

Those displaced, many of whom are women and children, have lost their belongings and have walked for long distances to partial safety. Those that were fortunate enough to have arrived in the above areas do so in very bad conditions. Many of whom had initially set off were unable to complete the journey and died along the way.

Some of those villages attacked were: Kaila, Korfola, Shakshko, Dalma, Feingo, Nimro, Hilat Mura, Korklay, Togoh, Sharfa, Umdai, Namira, Hilat Dawah, Khaor Mali, Kowaila, Shawa, Hashaba, Tomoro, Krakoli, Sarafona, Brnga, Amar gadeed, Dora, Tamara, Sirma, Groro, Tngrar, Daba Naira, Audio, Hilat Bador, Khazan Tungor, Koray, Kutrum, Fori, Aradeit, Kagmaray, Feiolo


SUDO UK calls on UN to immediately intervene to provide assistance to those displaced persons; and calls on the government to allow humanitarian organizations to provide shelter, water and food.

SUDO UK calls on UNAMID to take strong action in order to fulfil its mandate, including its obligation to “prevent attacks against civilians, within its capability and areas of deployment, without prejudice to the responsibility of the Government of the Sudan”, and the requirement “to investigate and hold accountable those who are responsible, and promote efforts to disarm the Janjaweed and other militias”
