A group of paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) entered Kalma camp for the displaced in South Darfur on Wednesday.

“RSF troops in an armoured vehicle positioned themselves strategically at the camp market, terrifying the more than 160,000 displaced living in the camp”, Hussein Abu Sharati, chairman of the Darfur Displaced and Refugees Association, told Dabanga.

Abu Sharati stressed that the arrival of the militia troops at the camp is not a coincidence. “It is most probably a foreboding of a launch of widespread attacks by the RSF on the camps for the displaced in the area.”

He urged the UN Security Council and the Unamid peacekeepers to act, and “protect the displaced in the camps from renewed attacks by government forces”.
