The humanitarian context in April was characterised by renewed fighting, particularly in Unity State, leading to the displacement of thousands of civilians. A number of humanitarian operations were temporarily suspended due to insecurity. Three villages were burnt down following clashes in and around Koch town, displacing over 7,000 people. Nearly 600 IDPs arrived in Nyal, Panyijiar County. In Jonglei, fighting was reported in Akobo, Nyirol and Uro Counties in Jonglei, where several civilians were killed and thousands displaced. At least, 13,000 IDPs arrived in Guiy village, north-west of Motot following fighting in Nyirol and Uror counties. In Pibor County (Jonglei), a cattle raid attack led to the displacement of about 15,000 people and the abduction of at least 30 women and children in Likuangole.
