A delegation from the Rizeigat tribe, headed by the former Governor of East Darfur State, Abdel Hamid Mosa Kasha, is leading an initiative to mediate between the Beni Imran and Ziyoud clans of the Misseriya.

In heavy clashes that erupted between the two clans in Babanusa locality, West Kordofan, on 27 June, at least 196 tribesmen were killed and injured. A conflict over pastures had ignited the fighting.

Abdallah Jamaa, member of the parliamentary reconciliation committee, told the press on Thursday that the delegation, consisting of MPs, former ministers, and representatives of the native administration, will travel next Monday to El Fula, capital of West Kordofan. They will also visit the conflict areas in El Dibab and Babanusa, and meet with the conflicting parties in an attempt to prevent escalation.
