WASHINGTON DC AUGUST 26: The United States Government has accused the Sudan’s Rapid Support Force (RSF) for committing rape and other conflict related sexual violence cases in the restive Darfur region.

A statement released by the Department of State on Friday (25/8) said victims have attributed their ordeal to the actions of RSF.

– “The United States strongly condemns pervasive conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) in Sudan, which credible sources including victims have attributed to the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and their allied militias.”

– “The numerous reports of rape, gang rape, and other forms of gender-based violence against women and girls in West Darfur and other areas are deeply disturbing.”

– “We echo UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General Patten in calling on the RSF to condemn CRSV, commit to effective measures to prevent and address any acts of CRSV, and declare zero-tolerance for sexual violence.”

– “Accountability for sexual violence in conflict is a core priority for the U.S. government, as reflected in the Presidential Memorandum signed by President Biden in November 2022, which directs the use of all available tools — including legal, policy, diplomatic, and financial tools — to deter such violence.”

The UN Special Representative of the Secretary General, Volker Perthes also accused the RSF of perpetrating conflict-related sexual violence in Darfur.

These condemnations probably won’t have any effect – as one must understand that the RSF is not an ordinary combat unit. RSF is a terrorist organization led by an uneducated and totally unscrupulous opportunist and thief. None of their commitments have any value.
