(Geneva Call) – While regular combat continues to oppose the Sudanese government and the Sudanese People’s Liberation Movement – North (SPLM-N), Geneva Call held its first training session for 30 SPLM-N officers and fighters operating in the isolated Blue Nile area. Geneva Call presented the main rules contained in the Deeds of Commitment signed by the SPLM-N and explained the most basic rules of international humanitarian law by using its Fighter not Killer educational material. Geneva Call also raised the issue of child protection in the conflict, particularly the prohibition on recruiting children under 18. The SPLM-N has been a signatory to Geneva Call’s Deed of Commitment protecting children in armed conflict since June 2015, however there were several allegations of child recruitment by the SPLM-N before that time.
