SUMMARY OF EVENT
Following intercommunal conflicts between herders and farmers in early August 2019, 745 households composed of around 5,200 individuals left the Hadjar Icheguire, Galgasse, Khara and Arisse villages between 05 and 09 August 2019 and fled to the villages of Chokoyane and Kongour. Apart from the village of Hadjar Icheguire located in the sous-préfecture of Marfa (Département of Ouara), all these villages are located in the sous-préfecture of Choyane (Département of Ouarra). On 18 August 2019, authorities established a state of emergency for three months in the provinces of Ouaddai and Sila following these intercommunal conflicts. Other displacements may have occurred in the province of Sila, but data is not yet available.
