The Sudan Liberation Movement, led by Abdel Wahid Mohamed Nour, said on Sunday – that the areas under its control in Jebel Marra and a number of areas in Darfur are witnessing a wave of mass displacement of thousands of families as a result of the ongoing war between the armed forces and the Rapid Support Forces in the cities of El Fasher, Nyala, Zalingei and El Geneina.
Four out of five major cities in the Darfur region are witnessing battles between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces, which have led to the killing of thousands of civilians and the displacement of tens of thousands to safer areas, which has left a major humanitarian tragedy in the Darfur region, at a time when humanitarian organizations are facing difficulties in delivering aid to those in need. .
The movement’s spokesman, Muhammad Al-Nayer, said in a statement seen by Darfur 24 that thousands of fleeing residey arrived in the areas of “Kaloctang, Katroum, Dabba Nayra, Sabun Al-Faqar, Fanga, Liba, Qalul, Torrentaura, Sapanga, Sortuni, Kator, Fina, Tawila and other areas ontrolled by movement.
He added, “Thr fleeing people are living in difficult humanitarian conditions, as they lack the most basic necessities of life and a shortage of food, medicine, and clothing. The heavy rains have exacerbated their suffering, especially women, children, the elderly, and the sick.”
He continued,”The movement will spare no effort in helping them in all possible ways and providing protection for the victims of the senseless war, and at the same time sent a call to the Sudanese people and national, regional and international humanitarian organizations to relieve these afflicted people and provide all forms of aid and assistance, and everything that would alleviate the burden of the disasters that befell them, before the situation gets out of control and we face a serious humanitarian catastrophe – according to the statement –
He pointed out that the civil authority of the movement in the areas under its control provided shelter and support for the displaced, provided protection for them, and alleviated their suffering despite the limited resources available. However, he warned that the numbers of displaced persons were huge and exceeded the capacity of the movement, but at the same time it confirmed that it would knock on all doors in order to serve the displaced and provide relief to them. .
