African Center for Justice and Peace Studies (ACJPS) expresses deep concern about the continuous targeting of civilians by the Sudanese Army (SAF) and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF). ACJPS has documented two separate incidents where 41 civilians were killed and several others injured in Donki Shatta locality in North Darfur and Nyala city in South Darfur.

We reiterate our calls to both SAF and RSF to end the violent conflict that has resulted to deaths, injuries and displacement. Sudanese authorities must take all measures to protect the human rights of the Sudanese people and respect their demand for democracy and a peaceful transition to civilian rule.

We further call upon both the RSF and SAF to:

1. Uphold the rights of civilians, including their right to life.

2. Ensure that humanitarian aid reaches those in need without hindrance.

3. Engage in peaceful dialogue to find a lasting and peaceful solution to the conflict.

4. Take responsibility for any actions that have resulted in harm to civilians or other parties involved in the conflict.

5. Cooperate with regional partners to find a lasting solution to the conflict. This is essential to ending the violence and ensuring peace for the people of Sudan.
