According to a United Nations report between 10,000 and 15,000 people were killed in one city in Sudan's West Darfur region last year in ethnic violence by the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and allied Arab militia.

Iran PressAfrica: In the report to the UN Security Council, independent UN sanctions monitors attributed the toll in El Geneina to intelligence sources and contrasted it with the UN estimate that about 12,000 people have been killed across Sudan since war erupted on 15 April 2023, between the Sudanese army and the RSF.

In a report to the United Nations Security Council, an independent monitoring body of the UN sanctions referred to the number of ethnic killings in El Geneina based on intelligence sources. The report also compared with the UN's estimate that around 12,000 people have died across Sudan due to the civil war that erupted on April 15, 2023, between the Sudanese army and RSF.

The monitoring agency also revealed credible allegations that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) provided military support to the RSF several times a week through Amdjarass in northern Chad. A general in Sudan in November 2023 accused the UAE of supporting the war launched by the RSF.

The war has left nearly half of Sudan's 49 million people needing aid, while more than 7.5 million people have fled their homes - making Sudan the biggest displacement crisis globally - and hunger is rising.

Since April 15, Sudan has witnessed a conflict between the army of this country under the command of Abdul Fattah al-Burhan and the rapid support forces under the command of Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo (Hemedti), including in the capital Khartoum and other cities in the north and west of the country.

Ceasefires have been announced several times in Sudan, but the warring parties continue to violate them.
