There are currently four major refugee camps, Kaya, Yousif Batil, Gendirasa and Doro, in Maban County, Upper Nile State, South Sudan, mainly hosting refugees from Sudan's Blue Nile (BN) State. By mid-2016, the four camps were estimated to host 130,000 refugees in a highly militarised and tense context “with 60,000 frustrated Mabanese, about 17,000 IDPs, at least six armed militias and not nearly enough food”. By 31 May 2017, it was estimated that the camps had 141,341 refugees.

INTRODUCTION

In many conflicts around the world children are not safe. As the former UN Secretary-General's Expert on the Impact of Armed Conflict on Children noted “[n]ot only are large numbers of children killed and injured…but countless others grow up deprived of their material and emotional needs, including the structures that give meaning to social and cultural life. The entire fabric of their societies – their homes, schools, health systems and religious institutions – is torn to pieces.”

After four years of conflict in Southern Kordofan (SK) and Blue Nile (BN), civilians continue to be heavily affected by aerial bombardment and ground fighting carried out by the Sudanese government. Since the beginning of the war, civilians have been displaced on a massive scale, injured, killed, detained or abducted in SK and BN. Moreover, the government of Sudan continues to deny independent humanitarian access increasing the suffering and the vulnerability of civilians leaving in the Two Areas.

For civilians in many parts of Sudan, 2015 has already brought rising hostilities, mass displacement, and a deepening food crisis. The conditions are such that hundreds of civilians are fleeing across the Sudanese border to refugee camps in Unity State, where South Sudan’s civil war is still raging. They have made the judgement that the risks of remaining in Sudan, where they would continue to be subjected to intense aerial bombardment and shelling of civilian areas, and unsustainable livelihoods, were greater than any risks they might encounter in the conflict zone across the border.

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.

Geneva, Kampala, New York, Tuesday 24 December 2013

We, the undersigned, representatives of civil society organisations from Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan wish to express our deep concern about the military confrontations that erupted in the Republic of South Sudan on 15 and 16 December 2013. We are utterly disturbed that the violence, which started in Juba, the capital of South Sudan, has now spread to other parts of the country. This unexpected development threatens the foundation of the nascent nation and puts to jeopardy the safety and well-being of its citizens.
