African Center for Justice and Peace Studies (ACJPS) continues to document human rights violations committed by both the warring parties including sexual violence during the ongoing armed conflict in Sudan. ACJPS strongly condemns the use of sexual violence as a tactic of war and therefore calls upon the perpetuators to desist from such acts. In this release, ACJPS has documented 51 incidents of sexual violence against women and girls in Zalingi and Garsilla localities in Central Darfur. The victims/survivors identified men dressed in the Rapid Support Forces’ (RSF) uniforms, allied Arab militias and in some cases men in Sudanese Armed Forces’ (SAF) uniform as the perpetuators.
