The situation is tense country wide as the one year anniversary of the conflict approaches. Monday December 15 marks one year since fighting broke out in Juba. Security measures have been taken to control crowds in the likely event of street protests and general unrest. During the reporting period, there was an outbreak of heavy fighting in Nassir, Upper Nile State between the government troops and armed youth.
In Awerial, sporadic night time shooting took place inside the camps and women continue to be attacked while collecting firewood. There is escalating tension between the host community and armed IDP men in and around the camp, raising a red flag for the additional protection risks for women and girls.
