According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), some 843,130 people had to leave their houses and were forced to relocate within the country, while another 253,591 crossed the borders, which increase the total to almost 1.1 million.
The data -the IOM adds- are based on preliminary information from teams in the field and should be taken only as estimates. For its part, the Intergovernment Authority on Development (IGAD) said the Army and the paramilitary forces are responsible for the consequences of their actions and warned the military leaders of both sides that they will pay for their actions within the framework of the war.
Meanwhile, after a month of fighting, more than half of the Sudanese are in need of help and almost 1000 civilians died.
The United Nations humanitarian affairs chief, Ramesh Rajasingham, declared Thursday that 25 million people, more than half of Sudan’s population, are in need of aid and protection, and that some 500 million dollars are needed for refugees in neighboring countries.
Behind this war, according to experts, is also the competition between populations that historically control power and resources and the most marginalized sectors of this ethnic mosaic.
