The Troika condemned an alleged ethnic cleansing as well as increasing conflict with equal strength. Increasing violence along with human rights abuse reported in Sudan's Darfur region was "unacceptable," the United States, Britain, and Norway said in a joint statement on Friday, calling out the Sudan government for many such acts.

The Troika states condemned the Sudanese Armed Forces and Rapid Support Forces for the escalation of violence that has left some 800 people dead this month and about 8,000 others displaced. They pointed in particular to the RSF's attacks on civilians in parts of Darfur, and they pointed to a collective call for cessation of this violence and saw both sides as trying to reach a deal through Saudi-brokered peace talks.

The group said in a statement that it was reacting to the recent events where RSF fighters reportedly killed over 800 people in Ardamata, West Darfur, and displaced thousands into Chad. Cases were also reported by the locals' bodies of medical associations and the UN in which homes of non-Arabs fell under attack, hence leading to the destruction of shelters for displaced people.

Actually, these killings are part of long-standing hostility between Sudan's military and RSF that has killed a believed 9,000 people, although nearby groups argue the actual figure may be much higher. Figures released by the United Nations state that 6 million people have been displaced as a result of the Darfur conflict, with 1.2 million of this figure being found in neighbouring countries.
