Urgent Appeal: Tactics Institute Highlights Devastation of Sudanese Civil War

No data was found

The Sudanese Civil War is brutal and devastating and displays no sign of coming to an end. Tactics Institute organization is highly concerned about the worsening situation. Before the conflict, Sudan was already undergoing a severe humanitarian crisis. Long-term political instability and economic strains meant that  15.8 million people required humanitarian aid. The conflict has only worsened these conditions, leaving almost 25 million people — more than half of Sudan’s population — in need.

War is ruining lives and leaving a tragic legacy of human rights abuses. Tactics Institute underscores the warring parties — who are determined to settle their conflict through battle— have a duty to the Sudanese people to terminate it. We also observed that the Sudanese Armed Forces are showing indiscriminate aerial bombing, and most of the sexual violence, looting, and killing are occurring in areas controlled by the Rapid Support Forces. Tactics Institute organization underlines and urges, “Sudan cannot — and must not — bear the costs of this war indefinitely.

The fight for power between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) exploded into a large-scale conflict in April 2023 and has been pushing humanitarian needs in the country ever since. With mass displacement and reports of mass killings, humanitarian access has been hardly curtailed, making it excessively hard for aid to reach vulnerable communities. The crisis is anticipated to deteriorate through 2024, causing further displacement and increasing regional risks.

Around 12,000 people have been dead, with about 5.9 million displaced within the land, making it the most significant internal displacement trouble globally. More than 7.2 million people have deserted their homes, taking shelter inside and outside the country, with children denoting about half of the people displaced. Sudan is now the country with the most significant number of displaced people and the most prominent child displacement crisis in the world. Further, the Expansion of the conflict into Sudan’s “breadbasket,” Al Jazirah state, has forced more than 500,000 people to be displaced and has worsened the country’s food crisis. Meanwhile, looting businesses, markets, and humanitarian aid warehouses will further contribute to food shortages.

We urge all actors to respect international humanitarian law and safeguard civilians and infrastructure fully. The situation can, and will, get immeasurably more harmful unless urgent action is taken.” Tactics Institute calls on the international community to spare no step in seeking a negotiated solution to end the war.

The outbreak of fighting signals a failure of Western diplomacy, as in 2023, diplomats from both the UK and the US offered Sudanese leaders with recommendations that only seemed to aggravate tensions.

On the other hand, Egypt is supporting SAF as President Sisi desires someone like him in power in Sudan. Meanwhile, the Gulf countries also follow their interests. The UAE and KSA utilized both the RSF and SAF as mercenary groups to resist against the Houthis in Yemen. Russia is supporting the RSF via its mercenary Wagner group, which is providing it with missiles.

Tactics Institute sincerely expresses concern over the conflict’s various impacts on civilians and urges the Concerned authorities, UN, and security council to negotiate toward a termination of hostilities. We also underline the need for Khartoum to boost humanitarian access and the importance of holding those liable for the conflict and associated atrocities accountable.
