    Since last year, the continuous fighting in Sudan has killed more than 13,000 people and injured 26,000 others, according to the United Nations humanitarian agency.

    Since April 2023, Sudan has been embroiled in conflict between the army, led by Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, leader of the country’s ruling Sovereign Council, and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) paramilitary militia.

    “About 7.6 million people have been displaced inside and outside Sudan since the fighting began,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs stated in a statement.

    As of Jan. 16, the UN office recorded over 9,700 probable cholera cases in Sudan, with 269 linked deaths.

    Several cease-fire agreements arranged by Saudi and American mediators have failed to stop the on going violence in Sudan.
