South Sudan Conflict Continues Unabated

The Africa Center for Strategic Studies published on 29 January 2018 a brief update titled "Humanitarian Costs of South Sudan Conflict Continue to Escalate."

Violent clashes between government and opposition forces continue in Central Equatoria, Western Equatoria, and Unity States. Seven million people--nearly 60 percent of the population--require humanitarian assistance. The conflict has displaced 4.5 million people. The humanitarian situation in 2018 is expected to be worse than in 2017.
