Press statement – Sennar State: Another Hotspot for Violence and Atrocities

On Saturday, 29th June, Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces (RSF) advanced deep into Sennar State, going to Sinja, taking over the “headquarters of the army’s 17th Infantry Division”. This was a decisive blow, marking the peak of clashes between the RSF and Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF), which began in the area on 25th June, and the emergence of a new conflict hotspot.
