At least 28 people were killed and 57 houses burned down to the ground earlier this month, according to a report by the Barnabas Fund. The attack was carried out by Islamist extremists in the Christian community of Yith Pabol, South Sudan.
On January 6, Bishop Joseph Mamer Manot said that “massive displacement has happened, and the humanitarian situation is alarming as food and other property have been burned down into ashes, leaving survivors with no shelters, no food and no safe drinking water”.
Arab Muslims from the Republic of Sudan have been launching various attacks on Christians across the border in the south. An earlier attack this month in another Christian village left at least four dead, with three others missing and several houses destroyed.
