Situation Overview

Some 1.5 million people are internally displaced inside South Sudan, and an estimated 2.5 million people are currently facing crisis or emergency levels of food insecurity.

During the reporting period, tensions remained high in Rumbek East, and sporadic shooting continued to be reported.

The security situation in Bentiu and Rubkona was tense throughout the week. On Tuesday, an estimated 400 people arrived in the PoC, fleeing fighting in surrounding areas. Due to exchange of fire in surrounding areas, including at Unity oil field, movement of aid workers to Bentiu town and the PoC was temporarily paused, as were flights, though both had resumed by Wednesday.

There were also reports of fighting in Nasser and Maban counties.
