Sharp Rise in Ethnically-Targeted Violence in West Darfur

The December 2019 massacre in West Darfur killed almost 100 defenseless non-Arab civilians. The current violence--both in West Darfur (particularly the El Geneina area and displacement person camps (notably the two Kinding camps)--and in South Darfur has seen more than three hundred people killed, some 100,000 newly displaced, and tremendous suffering for lack of humanitarian capacity. The number of wounded--many seriously--is also very high, and medical capacity is overwhelmed. Many more will die.
