Since 28 December 2019, a dispute between Massalit and Arab tribesmen in Krinding displacement camp (about 3 km east of El Geneina), has fueled a series of incidents and increased tensions in and around El Geneina, West Darfur, resulting in widespread internal displacement.

Over the next 4 to 7 days, UNFPA will deploy a team of reproductive health specialists and experts in preventing/responding to gender-based violence to El Geneina to coordinate humanitarian responses in these areas.
