According to the written statement made by the United Nations (UN) International Organization for Migration (IOM), 7.1 million people were displaced in Sudan, while 3.8 million of them had to migrate after the clashes between the army and the NGO in Sudan on 15 April. .
Most of the internal displacement took place in parts of Darfur, Nile River and White Nile states.
Continuing conflicts in Sudan brought along shortages of food, water, medicine and fuel, while also causing a serious humanitarian crisis.
Prices for essential goods rose sharply due to disrupted trade routes and limited access.
After the start of the conflict, more than 1 million people in Sudan fled to neighboring countries Egypt, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Central African Republic and Libya, 67 percent of them Sudanese citizens.
The needs in Sudan are greater than ever, with 24.7 million people, half of the country’s population, in need of humanitarian aid and protection.
Clashes between the army and the HDK in Sudan
The Sudanese army wanted the full integration of the HDK 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 verbal war and tension, which started with the HDK’s declaration that it could accept this in a period spanning about 10 years after the civilian government, turned into an armed conflict between the parties in the capital Khartoum and various cities on the morning of April 15.
More than 3,000 people, most of them civilians, lost their lives and tens of thousands were injured in the fierce clashes, which entered its fifth month and still continues, with Khartoum and its surroundings, especially in the western cities.
