Description

Owing to the increased intensity of hostilities, ACLED records almost the same number of inter-gang clashes in Haiti during the first half of 2022 as in the entirety of 2021. In Croix-des-Bouquets district and Tabarre, violence involving these gangs resulted in at least 190 reported fatalities between 24 April and 6 May, making northeastern Ouest department a new hotspot for Haiti’s gang conflict. More violent events were reported in Croix-des-Bouquet and Tabarre in the first half of 2022 than in any whole year since ACLED started coverage of Haiti in 2018.
