According to the latest data shared by IOM, 2 million 414 thousand people fled to a different region within the country due to conflicts, while 737 thousand people took refuge in neighboring countries.
While the number of displaced people has increased by 180,000 people since last week, Khartoum province was the country with the highest displacement with 72 percent.
Yesterday, the army and the Rapid Support Forces (HDK) continued to clash with heavy weapons in different parts of Khartoum, the capital of Sudan. In Umdurman, west of the capital, army warplanes bombed HDK positions in the city.
The Sudanese army wanted the HDK to be fully integrated into the army within 2 years, which it once supported but saw as a threat because it acted as an independent and parallel army.
The war of words and tension, which started with the HDK’s declaration that it could accept this in a period spanning about 10 years after a civilian government, turned into an armed conflict between the parties in the capital Khartoum and various cities on the morning of April 15.
