The security situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) remains volatile despite the peace agreement signed in February 2019. Civilians remain the main victims of tensions and violence in the country. CAR is also one of the most dangerous contexts for humanitarian workers; 70 incidents directly affecting humanitarian staff or goods were recorded during the first quarter of 2019 compared with 65 during the same period in 2018. The subprefectures of Bambari, Batangafo, Bria and Kaga-Bandoro remain the most affected areas, although ETC activities have not been impacted by conflict in this period.

Entre le 19 et le 21 mai 2019, 34 personnes ont perdu la vie dans des attaques simultanées
attribuées au 3R (Retour, Réclamation et Réhabilitation) et perpétrées dans les villages de
Koundjili et Lemouna, (situés respectivement à 42 et 52 km à l’Ouest de Paoua) mais aussi
à Bohong et Maikolo (situés à environ 70 km de Bouar). Environ 12,000 personnes ont été

traduire rapidement les responsables devant la justice, rappelant que ces attaques contre
les civils pouvaient constituer des crimes de guerre et crimes contre l’humanité.
