Agencies scale up aid for new Jebel Marra IDPs
By 14 February, the number of people seeking humanitarian assistance in North Darfur following conflict between government forces and the Sudan Liberation Army – Abdul Wahid (SLA-AW) faction in the Jebel Marra area reached 39,000 people, an increase of 2,000 people from the previous week. In Central Darfur, humanitarian organisations have been unable to verify reported civilian displacement or ascertain and respond to humanitarian needs. There are also reports that thousands of people might have fled the fighting deeper into the Jebel Marra massif, however, the United Nations has not yet been able to confirm these reported cases of displacement.
Between 18 January and 13 February close to 39,000 people from Jebel Marra arrived in three locations in North Darfur (see the table below for details). The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is carrying out registration of the newly displaced people in Tawilla and Sortony. By 14 February, IOM has confirmed 14,008 new IDPs from the Jebel Marra area in Tawilla.
