In a statement on 14 December, humanitarian actors said they were concerned about the persisting disregard of the civilian and humanitarian character of internally displaced persons (IDP) sites in Ituri, eastern North-Kivu province. Between April 2021 and May 2022, 12 armed attacks were recorded against IDP sites in Ituri. These attacks, primarely attributed to armed groups, left 192 civilians dead and displaced many others. The most recent attack on 11 December in Nyamusasi site, in Djugu territory, left one person injured. The note calls on the Government to take urgent action to ensure that the sites are safe and protected for civilians and humanitarian actors.
