The UN Mission in South Sudan deeply regrets the continuation of hostilities in the Upper Nile State capital of Malakal and the resulting displacement of the civilian population.
UNMISS received more internally displaced persons at its protection-of-civilians sites in the Mission’s compound outside Malakal today. At the same time, the Mission is adhering to its policy of providing shelter to combatants who surrender their weapons and remove their military uniforms prior to entering one of its protection sites.
23 April 2015 - The top UNMISS official in the Upper Nile State capital Malakal today urged civilians seeking protection at the Mission’s base to maintain peace among themselves, despite resumption of fighting in the town.
“I need this protection site to be quiet. Help me keep the peace,” said UNMISS State Coordinator Deborah Schein as more civilians arrived at the mission’s compound fleeing violence that broke out in Malakal in the evening of Tuesday, 21 April 2015.

Hostilities and criminality continue to result in widespread displacement and additional humanitarian needs
Health authorities report new suspected and confirmed measles cases; an ongoing vaccination campaign aims to reach 7.9 million children by May
USAID/OFDA support, including emergency water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) assistance, targets displaced and conflict-affected populations
Humanitarian needs in Sudan are considerable and remain important in scope. Despite years of assistance humanitarian needs are acute and in some cases are expanding. These are predominantly caused by conflict which, in turn, drives displacement and food insecurity.
Snapshot 15–21 April 2015
Iraq Violence has displaced 14,000 families in and around Ramadi: 7,000 in Anbar; 5,000 in Baghdad, 2,000 on their way to Baghdad. Checkpoints and insecurity hamper IDP movement. UNICEF estimates 8.29 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, up from 5.2 million in February.
Over 1.5 million people have been displaced inside South Sudan. Currently, 2.5 million people face severe food insecurity and this number is expected to rise as the lean season unfolds.
The immediate aims of the aid operation are to save lives, protect the rights of the most vulnerable - including their freedom of movement, and to protect, restore, and promote livelihoods. As the planting season approaches, supporting people's freedom of movement and their ability to plant and tend their animals safely is a key priority.
WFP requires USD45 million for the next six months to meet the needs of all refugees in Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.
The rate of new arrivals has recently slowed in Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia but is subject to periodic spikes. However, renewed fighting in Upper Nile State has resulted in an increased number of refugees crossing into Sudan. About 5,000 people crossed into Sudan on 13 April alone.
Relocation of refugees to more appropriate sites is ongoing in Ethiopia and Sudan.
