Sudan: 100 days civil war and no end in sight

Show: false / Country: Sudan /

The civil war in Sudan has reached its 100th day, with no end in sight and no respite for civilians (Al-Jazeera, 24 July 2023). Quoting IOM statistics, Al-Jazeera states: “Since the war started [on 15 April 2023], at least 3,000 people have been killed, Sudan’s health authorities said. About 2.6 million people are now internally displaced, while more than 750,000 crossed into neighboring countries”.

World Watch Research analyst Yonas Dembele comments: “A deadly exchange of rocket fire between Sudan's army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in the embattled Darfur region on 22 July 2023 resulted in the loss of at least another 16 civilian lives (Al-Jazeera, 22 July 2023). This epitomizes the dire state of the ongoing conflict which has been exacerbated by reports of snipers targeting civilians in West Darfur, an act feared to be part of an ethnic cleansing campaign (Al-Jazeera, 17 June 2023). Historically, Christians in Sudan have faced significant persecution; however, caught in the middle of a complex and escalating new conflict, the Christian community finds itself in an increasingly perilous situation. With tensions and fire-power rising, there is increasing concern that Christians may be disproportionately targeted or fall victim to the broader violence.”
