The United Nations has confirmed an attack on a refugee camp in South Sudan’s Unity state. The November 11 bombing mission is said to potentially raise tensions with Sudan in the violence-plagued border region. Officials say the raid killed at least 12 people and wounded 20.
Various humanitarian aid and Christian mission organizations are working in the fray of the increased violence.
Samaritan’s Purse has been feeding and assisting refugees fleeing violence in the Nuban Mountains at a camp in Yida since early August. The camp population exceeds 20,000. The location of the camp is in the Republic of South Sudan, about 12 miles from the border between the Islamic Republic of Sudan and the newly formed country of the Republic of South Sudan.
