Sudan war has displaced almost 5.8 million people


The UN International Organization for Migration (IOM) on Wednesday said nearly 5.8 million people have been displaced inside and outside Sudan due to the prolonged conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

“The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Sudan estimates that 4,551,795 individuals have been internally displaced,” the IOM said in its latest update.

It added that the conflict has also caused “the mixed cross-border movements of 1,237,103 individuals into neighboring countries, namely Egypt, Libya, Chad, Central African Republic, South Sudan and Ethiopia.”

Sudan has been witnessing deadly clashes between the SAF and the RSF in Khartoum and other areas since April 15, which have resulted in at least 3,000 deaths and more than 6,000 injuries, according to figures released by the Sudanese Health Ministry.
