United Nations: 60 people killed in new conflicts in Darfur, Sudan

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Sudan announced that at least 60 people were killed and 250 others were injured in the clashes between the army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) between August 11 and 16 in the South Darfur state.

A statement published by this organization on Monday, August 21, says that these clashes have resumed in the city of Nyala, in the South Darfur state, and have led to the displacement of at least 50,000 people in this area.

According to this report, trucks loaded with food, water and medicine destined for Nyala city have stopped in Al-Zain, the capital of East Darfur, since August 14 due to conflicts, delaying the distribution of these much-needed necessities.

Armed conflicts in Sudan started on April 15 this year between the Sudan Army and RSF over power, with international mediation efforts failing to bring the conflicting parties to the negotiation table and ending this bloody battle.

It should be mentioned that the two parties have continuously violated several ceasefires in Sudan.
