The “Decisive Summer” offensive

Fighting between Government forces and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement – North (SPLM-N) in parts of South Kordofan and Blue Nile intensified in April-May 2014, with the onset of the second stage of the Government of Sudan’s “Decisive Summer” military campaign to end armed rebellions in the country. Led by the Government’s Rapid Support Force (RSF), the offensive on the SPLM-N has resulted in the deterioration of the humanitarian situation with thousands of civilians newly displaced in the region.
