June 20, 2024 (NAIROBI) – In response to the ongoing atrocities in Sudan, Human Rights Watch (HRW) is urging the African Union (AU) to work with the United Nations to deploy a civilian protection mission and initiate strong human rights investigations. The call comes ahead of the AU Peace and Security Council’s meeting on June 21, where concrete steps to protect civilians and ensure accountability are expected to be discussed. The devastating conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) has caused widespread humanitarian suffering and serious human rights abuses. HRW highlights that both sides are responsible for international humanitarian law violations, with the RSF and allied forces accused of crimes against humanity and war crimes against specific ethnic communities in West Darfur. Allan Ngari, Africa advocacy director at HRW, stressed the need for urgent action by the AU Peace and Security Council. He stated,...

Human Rights Watch Statement on the UN Human Rights Council 56th session Item 2: Interactive Dialogue on the oral update by the Independent International Fact-Finding Mission for the Sudan Mr. President, Atrocities continue to be committed by all parties to the conflict in Sudan. In El Fasher, witnesses describe shelling in civilian neighborhoods and attacks on health facilities, resulting in the killing of, and injury to, hundreds of civilians. Satellite imagery analysis suggests targeted burnings of residential neighborhoods, and an increase in graves next to them. Weeks ago, a local volunteer told us about the hardships facing families remaining in the city, saying: “we may not be able to afford a meal a day.” This follows appalling atrocities committed in El Geneina, where we documented war crimes and crimes against humanity committed as part of the RSF’s campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Massalit and other non-Arab populations. SAF airstrikes...

  June 20, 2024 (GEDAREF) – Amidst the ongoing conflict in Sudan, authorities in Gederaf state bordering Ethiopia have apprehended six Ethiopian women accused of serving as snipers for the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). This development further substantiates claims by the Sudanese military that foreign nationals are being recruited as mercenaries. Sources revealed to Sudan Tribune that these women had been operating within the RSF for over a year, leveraging their specialized sniping expertise gained in Ethiopia. Their alleged involvement in operations against the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and security agencies is supported by images of military engagements and weaponry found on their phones. The women were reportedly intercepted while attempting to flee to Ethiopia through the Amhara region following escalating violence in Khartoum. Arrangements had purportedly been made for their safe passage and remuneration upon reaching Ethiopia. These arrests follow earlier reports of captured South Sudanese nationals fighting alongside...

June 19, 2024 (NAIROBI) – A rights group has urged the United Nations Secretary-General to act on Security Council resolution 2736 and urgently work with the African Union (AU) to deploy a civilian protection mission in El Fasher, North Darfur. The call from Human Rights Watch comes in the wake of Sudan’s warring parties’ recent unlawful attacks in El Fasher, where hundreds of civilians have been killed, tens of thousands forced to flee and many in and around the city face starvation. There have been several reports of attacks by Sudan’s warring parties on populated areas of El Fasher, with burning of residential areas and deliberate attacks on hospitals blamed on the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF). “The UN and AU urgently need to act to protect civilians”, said Mohamed Osman, a researcher for the Africa division at Human Rights Watch. Clashes between rival forces in Sudan escalated in mid-May. On...

Mohamed Badawi On June 13, 2024, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution addressing the dire situation in El Fasher, North Darfur. While the resolution, brought forth by the United Kingdom, received support from 14 members, its limitations raise concerns about its effectiveness in protecting civilians amidst the ongoing conflict. The resolution calls for the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) to end their siege of El Fasher, withdraw from the surrounding areas, cease hostilities, and allow for the free movement of civilians within the city. However, by focusing solely on El Fasher and excluding other vulnerable areas in the region, the resolution’s impact is significantly weakened. Civilians venturing beyond El Fasher’s borders remain exposed to danger. Notably, the nearby city of Mellit, a crucial customs port and a lifeline for those fleeing the conflict, falls outside the resolution’s purview. Mellit has served as a vital transit point for civilians seeking refuge...

Nairobi — UN, AU Should Immediately Act to Ensure Protection in Darfur, Elsewhere Sudan‘s warring parties’ recent unlawful attacks in North Darfur’s El Fasher have killed hundreds of civilians and forced tens of thousands to flee, as thousands in and around the city face starvation, Human Rights Watch said today. The United Nations secretary-general should act on the UN Security Council’s resolution 2736 and urgently work with the African Union (AU) to deploy a civilian protection mission. Governments should support the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor’s investigation into apparent war crimes and other atrocities in Darfur. “Since mid-May, Sudan’s warring parties have pounded populated areas of El Fasher with no apparent regard for the civilians there, while the Rapid Support Forces are burning down residential areas and deliberately targeting hospitals,” said Mohamed Osman, researcher for the Africa division at Human Rights Watch. “The UN and AU urgently need to act...
