On April 15, 2023, armed clashes began between rival factions of the Sudanese military government. It began with clashes in western Sudan, the capital Khartoum, and the Darfur region. As of 25 April, at least 334,000 people have been killed and more than 20,000 injured. The fighting began with attacks by the paramilitary Rapid Support Force (RSF) on key government posts. Airstrikes, artillery, and gunfire were reported across Sudan, including Khartoum.
The conflict between the two generals has pushed Sudan to the brink of a new civil war, described as a ‘budding civil war’. The fighting has displaced at least 334,000 people inside Sudan and sent tens of thousands more to neighbouring countries like Egypt, Chad, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and Ethiopia, according to UN agencies. Aid workers are increasingly concerned about the lack of basic services in these areas. For more information, please visit wikipedia.
