Highlights:

  • The presence of armed elements in refugee sites in Upper Nile State is of increasing concern, according to the UN refugee agency, UNHCR
  • Aid agencies are preparing for distribution of humanitarian assistance to conflict-affected communities in Jonglei State
  • Food security continues to show slight improvements, but remains fragile, according to preliminary results of the latest IPC analysis.

Situation overview

Aid organizations are alarmed about increasing reports of the presence of armed elements in refugee sites in Upper Nile State, hosting some 111,000 Sudanese people. About 700 new refugees arrived in Yida, Unity State over the last week, about a third compared to the week before. The disputed Mile 14 area in the Northern Bahr El Ghazal State border area was reportedly bombed 20- 22 November. While no humanitarian consequences were reported aid organizations are concerned about the impact of further violence on civilians. In Jonglei State, humanitarian partners are preparing to distribute household and WASH items to about 5,500 displaced people in Pibor town affected by recent insecurity. The overall food security situation in South Sudan is predicted to improve slightly, according to the latest IPC analysis, but the situation remains fragile.
