Human Rights Update: Three year anniversary of outbreak of conflict sees highest number of attacks directed against the civilian population of Southern Kordofan - June 2014

Report
Sudan Consortium

The Sudan Consortium works with a trusted group of local Sudanese partners who have been working on the ground in Southern Kordofan since the current conflict began in late 2011. All the attacks referred to in this report were launched against areas where there was no military presence and which were clearly identifiable as civilian in character. We believe that this information provides strong circumstantial evidence that civilians are being directly and deliberately targeted by the Sudanese armed forces in Southern Kordofan.
