In a statement released Thursday, the Secretary General of Amnesty International, Agnés Callamard, refers to a report of her organization that presents evidence and testimonies on the enormous number of civilian deaths, both in deliberate and indiscriminate attacks, as well as acts of sexual violence, selective strikes against civilian infrastructure and widespread looting.
The document also notes that international standards are grossly violated and that individual soldiers and commanders can be held criminally responsible for war crimes.
Amnesty International says that the warring parties, as well as their related armed groups, must stop attacking civilians and ensure safe passage for those seeking assistance.
It also said that urgent measures must be taken to ensure justice and reparations for victims and survivors.
On the other hand, the organization asked the UN Security Council to extend without delay the arms embargo to the whole country and to increase humanitarian aid.
According to Sudanese medical sources, the death toll from the war exceeds 1,100, but these figures are considered conservative by analysts. Meanwhile, more than three million people fled their places of origin, both internally and to neighboring countries.
