Sudan: UN Chief Condemns Belligerents’ Blockade of Humanitarian Corridors

Antonio Guterres, the secretary general of the UN, expressed concern on Friday about the continuing fighting in Sudan.

Aid organizations have warned of a possible genocide as the Rapid Support Forces have been waging a massive assault on El Fasher, the state capital of North Darfur, for the past two weeks.

“I am particularly concerned about the ongoing war in Sudan where we are witnessing indiscriminate attacks against civilians, grotesque sexual violence against women and girls, and humanitarians blocked, attacked, and killed,” stated Guterres.

During the United Nations Civil Society Conference in Nairobi, Guterres gave a news briefing. She declared that the UN was in “solidarity” with Kenya, a country devastated by flooding, and that the UN would keep supporting relief efforts.

I want to sincerely sympathize with everyone impacted by the terrible floods that have ravaged Kenya and its neighboring countries. The United Nations is in solidarity with the people of Kenya. Additionally, we’ll keep collaborating to help government relief efforts in any manner we can,” he stated.

As he noted that Rafah was “on a knife’s edge” in anticipation of a potential Israeli attack on the southern city, the UN chief reaffirmed his demand for an immediate cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.
