DTM Sudan released 62 flash alerts reporting on incidents of sudden displacement between April and May 2024, including incidents related to armed clashes (23 incidents), natural disasters (21 incidents), attacks or fears of attacks (16 incidents), and inter-communal conflicts (2 incidents). States with the most reported incidents were: North Darfur (23 incidents), North Kordofan (9 incidents), and South Kordofan (7 incidents).

Notably, DTM Sudan published more flash alerts during April and May 2024 than any other two-month reporting period since the onset of conflict on 15 April 2023, publishing twice as many alerts compared to February and March 2024 (31 published flash alerts). The increase primarily reflected the escalation in clashes across Al Fasher, North Darfur.
