Since April 15, 2023, the internal armed conflict in Sudan, millions of civilians have been displaced. The conflict has also caused thousands of civilian deaths.
According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), there are about 7.1 million internally displaced people in Sudan. More than half of them are newly displaced following the war between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees expects the arrival of more than 1.8 million people from Sudan to five neighbouring countries by the end of this year.
The UNHCR called for $1 billion in aids to help those fleeing, amid reports of high disease and death rates.
Millions of Sudanese are experiencing difficulties in securing food, basic services, electricity and water during the extremely hot weather.
Killings and attacks targeting civilians and hospitals constitute a serious violation of international humanitarian law, where civilians and hospitals must be safe and targeting them in any way is strictly prohibited.
These grave violations reveal the lack of commitment to international legal and ethical standards, which require urgent and effective intervention by the international community to end it, and to ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.
Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK repeats its calls on the conflicting parties in Sudan to stop fighting immediately and to seek a peaceful solution through a comprehensive national dialogue.
AOHR UK also calls on the UN Security Council to take immediate action for a ceasefire to save the lives of innocent people at risk.
