Human Security Warning: Sudan Army Poised for Offensive in South Kordofan or Abyei

The Satellite Sentinel Project is issuing a human security warning for civilians living in Buram, Tess, and other areas to the south of Kadugli in Sudan’s South Kordofan state. Re-positioned aerial assets also place the highly contested Abyei area within range of the Sudanese army's arsenal. DigitalGlobe satellites will continue to monitor the Abyei area and watch for increased activity near Buram and Kadugli. We will issue additional alerts on signs of the Sudanese army's southbound movement.

Continued Violations: Both Sudans Still Violating Demilitarized Border Zone

New satellite imagery of the border area between Sudan and South Sudan shows that neither government has fulfilled international obligations to demilitarize their shared border. Despite public recommitments made by both presidents in early September 2013, Sudanese and South Sudanese forces retain military units within the Safe Demilitarized Border Zone (SDBZ), including areas that are still subject to border dispute. DigitalGlobe satellite imagery shows that Sudan has kept a military presence along the border at six locations with 14 occupied positions. Sudan appears to have made an effort to remove or relocate some units positioned inside the SDBZ, but only the unit at Radom appears to be vacated. South Sudanese forces dismantled and then reoccupied a highway defensive position at Teshwin and have reduced their presence at Al Abyad Lake, Kiir Adem, Al-Kwek and Joda. Still, South Sudan maintains a presence at 10 locations in the SDBZ with 22 units. Tanks, technicals (truck-mounted heavy machine guns) and tents are visible on both sides of the border in satellite imagery (Figure 1).

U.S. News and World Report Op-ed: The Sudan Sanctions Must Stay

 

Note: This op-ed originally appeared in U.S. News and World Reportand was written by the Enough Project’s John Prendergast and Ian Schwab.

 

The continued persecution of Christians in Darfur should be a serious red flag to the Trump administration. Last week, at least five peaceful protesters in Darfur were killed by Sudanese security forces at the Kalma refugee camp. The killings took place before a provocative attempt by war crimes-indicted head of state President Omar al-Bashir to visit the camp and paint a picture of life in his country at odds with the reality of millions living in camps and caves; they are in reality desperately reliant on humanitarian assistance that is often obstructed by Bashir’s government and are continuously under the threat of government-sponsored atrocity crimes.

New Report: Breaking Out of the Spiral in South Sudan

 

Note: This blog was originally posted on enoughproject.org.

 

Today, the Enough Project published “Breaking Out of the Spiral in South Sudan: Anti-Money Laundering, Network Sanctions, and a New Peacemaking Architecture.” In this new report, authors Brian Adeba, Brad Brooks-Rubin, John Prendergast, and Jon Temin argue that the metastasizing crisis in South Sudan urgently requires a new strategy for achieving a sustainable peace. Conditions on the ground are unbearable for large swathes of South Sudan’s population and regional peacemaking efforts are not delivering results.

Today, the Enough Project published “Strategic Pressure: A Blueprint for Addressing New Threats and Supporting Democratic Change in the DRC,” by Founding Director John Prendergast and Deputy Policy Director Sasha Lezhnev. The report recommends that an effective strategy to bringCongoback from the brink of crisis should focus on strongly supportingCongoleseefforts to achieve a democratic transition through a much more robust strategy of financial pressure. At the same time, the strategy should entail pushing for key structural reforms and immediate conflict mitigation steps in the Kasai region and the east.

Senators Corker and Coons to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin: Deploy Financial Tools to End Corrupt Behavior of South Sudanese Leaders

 

Note: This press release was originally published on enoughproject.org.

 

In a letter to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) and Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) detail the necessary steps the Treasury Department should take on South Sudan to “cut off the free flow of resources to the political and military elites, their families and associates.”

The Enough Project applauds Senators Corker and Coons for their focus on the use of financial tools to address the nexus of conflict and corruption in South Sudan, and for their leadership and commitment to a peaceful resolution to the conflict in the country.

Note: This blog was originally published on enoughproject.org.

 

A “deteriorating” humanitarian situation in Jebel Marra in the Darfur region is getting the attention of U.S. embassy officials in Khartoum, Sudan, who expressed concern at what is being described as “critical levels of severe acute malnutrition” despite a concerted effort by aid agencies to arrest the worsening situation. In a statement, the embassy said the situation demands a concerted multi-sector response.
