Sudan: Make This Conflict News

nr The world is full of hidden, unknown injustices, and one such conflict is happening every day in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. With a riddled history of civil war, the Nuba Mountains region of Sudan is once again being attacked daily by their own government, as the Sudanese government attempts to rid the country of remnants of rebel forces after South Sudan’s secession in 2011….they’re attempting this by attacking an entire region of civilians by dropping bombs on a near daily basis.
