It’s been nine months since heavy fighting erupted between the Sudanese army, under the control of the ruling military government in Khartoum, and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces. Thousands of civilians have been killed or injured. More than 7.7 million have been displaced. Both parties have shown complete disregard for international human rights law as well as international humanitarian law, in particular the principles on the conduct of hostilities. At least 25 million people across Sudan are in need of assistance, among them 14 million children.
