UN Security Council Calls For Millitary De-escalation In Sudan

The United Nations Security Council has said that it is deeply concerned that the Sudan Rapid Support Forces might be preparing an attack on El fasher , North Darfur Sudan.

The paramilitary forces are said to be planning to control the city which is the last city stronghold for the Sudan Armed Forces in the country, just over 2 weeks after

The UN has further stated that the conflict in the country has displaced approximately 6 million people within the country, while in El fasher around 800,000m people have been displaced due to the current state of affairs.

A further 1.8 million people have had to seek refuge outside the country, with an alarming number of 12,000 people having lost their lives in the unfortunate events.

Sudan however has experienced inadequate humanitarian assistance despite pledges from the European Union of over 355 million Euros in support and the United States pledging 100 million dollars in support, more is still needed to cover the adverse effects that have ravaged the country.

On the 15th of April 2023, a civil war between two rival factions of the military government of Sudan including the Sudanese Armed Forces led by Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo also known as ‘Hemeti’ began with the conflict felt mostly in Khartoum and the Dafur Region.

Hope still remains for a cease to the conflict and peace to prevail despite difficulty experienced in identifying who the outright leader of the country is at the moment for international diplomacy and peace efforts to prevail.
