OCHA reported new displacements last week (approximately 1,802 HHs) in Dar Al Salam Town, Sortony and Galab villages, which need to be confirmed and verified.

Armed clashes in areas close to Dar Al Salam village in the Dar Al Salam locality and in the Jebel Mara Locality in February, March and April resulted in displacement of civilian populations in Zamzam. Over 5,960 households in Zamzam camp are awaiting verification.

Newly displaced households from the Hashaba and Tangarara area were also reported in Tawila (Rwanda - 41; Dali -1,025 and Argo -118). These have yet to be confirmed.

Clashes in Tabit and neighboring locations in North Darfur in the first half of February caused displacements from Tabit, Sheria, and Negeha to Dar Al Salam, and from Tabit, Tukamari, Sortony and Shangil Tobay locations to Tawila and Zamzam.

Armed clashes in the Jebel Mara Locality in March resulted in displacement of populations in Umm Dereasayi.
