Darfur: New Humanitarian Needs and Aid Delivery Fact Sheet, 15 July 2014

A new wave of insecurity and violence across Darfur that started in early 2014 has generated enormous additional humanitarian needs. Fighting, tensions and insecurity involved Government forces supported by the Rapid Support Forces, a Government-affiliated militia, as well as armed movements and armed tribal militia. Hostilities and violence spread across much of North and South Darfur, with spillover effects to West, Central and East Darfur. Since the beginning of 2014, the cumulative number of people who have been displaced stands at 397,057.
