The conflict between the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and the Sudan People's Liberation Army-North (SPLA-N) has had a heavy cost on civilians living in South Kordofan. Security concerns are an increasing threat to the population, displacement is a major problem, food security is poor, education has been seriously impacted by the conflict, and health statistics are dramatic.
Amnesty International, April 2013
The armed conflict in Sudan's Southern Kordofan state between the Sudanese government and armed opposition group, the Sudan Peoples' Liberation Army-North (SPLA-N), continues unabated, and to the detriment of the civilian population.

Human Rights Watch, December 2012
The Sudanese government's indiscriminate aerial bombardment and shelling in Blue Nile and Southern Kordofan states has killed and injured scores of civilians since the conflict began more than a year ago. This report from Human Rights Watch documents the suffering of the civilians and describes the effect of Sudan's refusal to allow humanitarian assistance into rebel-held areas.
Sullivan, D. and Orcutt, S., July 2012, United to End Genocide
Attacks against civilians and blocking of aid by the Government of Sudan continue even as the conditions in the refugee camps are deteriorating. As the rainy season reaches its peak, the people of South Kordofan and Blue Nile are being forced to make an impossible choice between continued attacks and starvation in their homeland or disease and malnutrition en route to flooded camps across the border.
United Nations Security Council, 2 May 2012
In this resolution, the Security Council expresses deep concern at the humanitarian situation created by the fighting between Sudan and South Sudan, and the continued fighting in the states of Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile, in Sudan. The resolution condemns all acts of violence committed against civilians in violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law.

Allahu Akbar: A Friday in Khartoum
I am sipping to my coffee as I am listening to the local imam through the loudspeaker as he addresses his congregation inside the mosque.
Ikke mer fred å få
Ingen viktige fredsavtaler er inngått i verden de siste åtte årene. De fleste «intern-konflikter» er ikke det de gir seg ut for å være. De er deler av internasjonale konfliktsystemer der eksterne aktører spiller helt sentrale roller, skriver Gunnar M. Sørbø i en utenriksanalyse i Morgenbladet.
