Sudanese Civil War Situation Report #7

· Fighting between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have continued, while inter-communal violence is spreading in Darfur.

· Local and international humanitarian partners continue to deliver aid, replenish stocks, and provide services throughout the country.

· The World Food Programme is appealing to all parties to the conflict to open aid corridors and facilitate access, especially to Darfur.

· The UN Central Emergency Relief Fund has allocated an additional $22 million and the Sudan Humanitarian Fund $40 million for urgent life-saving assistance to people affected by the crisis.

· Refugees and Internal Displacement Update:

o The UN reports that over 560,000 refugees have fled to neighboring countries.

o The countries receiving the bulk of refugees is Egypt, followed by Chad, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and the Central African Republic. The capacity of these countries’ border reception and transit facilities has been strained by the sheer numbers of people arriving, leading to overcrowding and further stretching of already limited resources.

o The UN Refugee Agency and its partners have increased their efforts to provide emergency shelter, clean water, health care services, psychosocial support, and other vital assistance.

o The UN estimates that its previous estimate of one million refugees will be surpassed.

o The UN Migration Agency (IOM) reports that approximately 2.1 million people have been displaced inside the country.

· Emergency Telecommunications Cluster Update:

o On June 21st, the ETC connected the IOMs office to its data connectivity network in Port Sudan.

o Satellite connectivity equipment has been installed in Kassala and Wad Madani in preparation for the expansion of the ETC network, however the cluster will not be able to deliver services to meet the demands of humanitarian operations unless funding is received. The ETC urgently requires $6.3 million to continue to provide communications services.

· Atrocity Crimes Updates:

o The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is deeply concerned about the dire risk of genocide in Darfur:

ü RSF and its allied militias have engaged in targeted, ethnically motivated violence against non-Arab populations.

ü There are reports of widespread sexual violence and the destruction of entire villages.

ü Already, over 1,100 people have been killed in the city of El Geneina in West Darfur.

o The Conflict Observatory reported the following:

ü Analysis of imagery captured over Murnei, West Darfur, indicates at least two kilometers have been affected by fire between June 27-28.

ü There has been widespread fire damage to education sites, humanitarian facilities, and places of worship in El-Geneina.
