The fight between the Sudanese Army (SAF) and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in South Darfur has intensified with trends similar to those in Khartoum where SAF uses the tactic of shelling in areas around their base without actually leaving the base. This is done on suspicion that RSF occupied residences of civilians neighboring the SAF base with the intension to attack.

Unfortunately, Nyala is among the towns that have been cut off from the rest of the world as internet service has been off since 12 August 2023. This is similar to the situation in Zalingi in Central Darfur and Elgenina in West Darfur where internet has been off since 20 May and 17 May, 2023 respectively. Although MTN telecommunication company restored the Short Message Service (SMS) and Zain telecommunication company also restored some services on 09 September 2023, the network is very poor. This unjustified black out prompted ACJPS to carry out an investigation and find out how the armed conflict has affected not only Nyala but South Darfur in general.
