The context

Sudan is marked by high inflation, a shrinking economy, student protests and protracted conflict, as well as stiff American sanctions and genocide charges related to Darfur. The independence of South Sudan in 2011 resolved years of civil war, but clashes continue to arise between Sudan and its new neighbor.
