This report is based on research conducted in June and July
2015 by Human Rights Watch researchers in Unity state— in Bentiu, the state capital, and the town of Ganylel, Pany ijiar county, in southern Unity state—and in Juba, South Sudan’s capital. The bulk of the research focused on the conflict’s impact on civilians in central Unity state—Rubkona, Guit, Koch counties—since late April and to a lesser extent on Leer county, south of Koch, but Human Rights Watch also documented abuses conducted by government forces in Mayendit and Panyijiar counties in southern Unity. Researchers interviewed 126 displaced persons in Bentiu and 48 displaced persons in Ganylel town.
