UNITAMS reminds the Sudanese authorities’ that their responsibility to protect civilians is not diminished despite the current political situation
KHARTOUM, Sudan, November 25, 2021 / APO Group / –
UNITAMS is deeply concerned about the significant increase in tribal and inter-community violence, which has resulted in the unfortunate loss of civilian lives and livelihoods, most recently in Tawila, Dar Es Salaam and Sortoni, Kabkabiya towns in North Darfur and Jebel Moon , in West Darfur.
Reports indicate that dozens of people were killed and many others injured in clashes between Arabs and Misseriya Jebel in Jebel Moon on November 17 and 19, with dozens of villages burned and some 4,300 people displaced, many of them in eastern Chad. . We are also alarmed by reports of rapes against women and girls, as well as reports of 20 missing children.
UNITAMS welcomes the initial efforts allegedly made by local authorities to respond to the situation and calls on regional and national authorities to immediately intensify efforts to reduce tensions, investigate recent incidents and prevent further violence.
The persistent insecurity in Darfur underscores the need for the Government and armed groups that have signed the Juba Peace Agreement to prioritize the protection of civilians in Darfur and, in this regard, to rapidly implement the provisions of the Agreement, in particular the lifting of the Joint Security Maintenance Forces and the provision of the National Plan for the Protection of Civilians.
UNITAMS reminds the Sudanese authorities “that their responsibility to protect civilians does not diminish despite the current political situation.
