Since 22 December 2019, inter-communal tensions between Massalit and Arab tribesmen in and around El Geneina, West Darfur, has fueled conflict - resulting in the death of 54 and injury of 60 people.

Out of this total caseload, 40 family members are known to be missing, as well as 70 children remaining separated from their parents. Due to the conflict that erupted in Al Sultan, Krinding 1 and Krinding 2 camps, at least two blocks and 2,303 homes have been burnt down – a further 801 houses looted.
