More than 1,000 people displaced by fighting in Unity state have sought refuge in Twic County of Warrap State.

County Commissioner Biar Biar Ring told Eye Radio that more people are arriving in the county from bordering Mayom County.

“We are verifying the total because they are in different areas. I took them yesterday in five trucks to a place where the UN can see them. The total number was 773 but now there another 300 people in Aweng Payam and there are 100 in Turalei, they have still not reached the area,” Mr Biar Biar said.

Commissioner Biar called upon Non-Governmental Organizations to help the displaced.

“I am calling for humanitarian aid to help those who are affected by the fighting that is occurring in Unity State and which made them flee to Twic. I am calling upon humanitarian agencies to intervene quickly because people don’t have food, clean water and medicine,” he said.

Fighting erupted in Juba on 15th December and spread to Upper Nile, Jonglei and Unity states.
