HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN SUDAN


In mid-February, the Sudanese military reclaimed control of Omdurman, triggering chaos as people scatter in panic, fearing further attacks. Abruptly, resulting in horrific incidents of rape, ethnic clashes, and public executions. 


    Testimonies from civilians entangled in Sudan's internal conflict, detailing horrific incidents of rape, ethnic clashes, and public executions. Despite the dangers, journalists have successfully reached the front lines near Khartoum, the nation's capital.

High-ranking UN officials have characterized the situation as thrusting Sudan into "one of the most severe humanitarian crises in recent memory," with warnings of a looming famine of unprecedented scale. Concerns are also mounting over a potential resurgence of genocide akin to that witnessed in Darfur two decades ago.


In a sudden and devastating turn of events, a powerful explosion rocks the streets of Omdurman, triggering chaos as people scatter in panic, fearing further attacks. Moments earlier, the same streets bustled with pedestrians gathering essential supplies from newly reopened shops.

In mid-February, the Sudanese military reclaimed control of Omdurman, one of three cities lining the River Nile that collectively constitute Khartoum. Despite the return of civilians, daily mortar attacks, like the one witnessed on the main street, persist.
