April 15th, 2024 marked exactly one year since armed conflict broke out in Sudan's capital, Khartoum, between the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) following brewing tensions between the SAF leader, General Abelfattah al-Burhan and RSF leader, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo also known as Hemedti. Although the conflict first broke out in Khartoum and Marawi, it quickly spread across several parts of the country. Other parties such as Arab armed militia, SLM/Manni Manawi, Justice and Equity Movement, and Sudanese Alliance Forces among others have since joined the conflict in support of either side, further fueling the conflict. The civilians have since suffered a great deal at the hands of the warring parties with violations ranging from extrajudicial killings to sexual violence, arbitrary arrests, and detention. Sadly, these violations have taken place in a climate of total impunity.This report provides details of incidents of human rights violations that have continued to take place since the start of the war.
