Internally displaced persons living in Fatah Borno camp, North Darfur said yesterday the camp's security situation is getting worse.

Camp residents are constantly being attacked by militant groups looting and abusing them when they venture out of the camp to collect water or firewood. Residents said they feel trapped.

They demanded for government authorities to organize protection to support displaced people.

Witnesses also said the health service in the camp is very poor, with only one health nurse, and limited medicines available.

They appealed to international humanitarian organizations to provide desperately needed medical assistance.

Camp residents said they also rejected the proposals put forward by the Doha Document for Peace, citing that the agreement does not support their needs.
