Sudan — Displacement Situation (7) — 04 June 2023
From 15 April 2023, armed clashes erupted between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in multiple cities across Sudan, including Khartoum, Al Fasher, Kebkabiya, Merowe, Nyala, Zalingi, Ag Geneina, and El Obeid. DTM Sudan has been receiving reports of widespread displacement across diﬀerent states in Sudan due to the ongoing security situation. - Since 15 April 2023, DTM estimates that approximately 1,428,551 individuals (286,207 households) have been displaced internally as a result of the conflict. - Notably, the current estimate for displacement in the previous 52 days is greater than that of recorded displacement during the previous 4 years. Furthermore, an estimated additional 476,811 individuals have crossed into neighbouring countries. Due to the ongoing nature of the fighting, many areas reportedly remain inaccessible to humanitarian actors. DTM estimates of displacement are based on preliminary reports from field teams and should be taken as estimations only. Additional reports of displacement are likely to emerge as the situation becomes clearer.
