More than 3,000 displaced arrived at areas controlled by the Sudan Liberation Movement, led by Abdel Wahid El Nur (SLM-AW) in Jebel Marra.

Amer Yousef Adam, SLM-AW Humanitarian Affairs official, explained to Radio Dabanga that the newly displaced fled the attacks by government forces on Golo and the surrounding villages in January.

“They are currently hiding in the areas of Zariba, Kuti, Sur Reng, Balding, Barfal, and Galol, in extremely difficult humanitarian conditions, searching for shade under trees and mountain caves, without food or medicines.

He appealed to the UN and aid organisations to intervene “as soon as possible”, and provide assistance to them.
