There were active armed conflicts in at least 56 states in 2022, five more than in 2021: 11 in the Americas; 10 in Asia and Oceania; 3 in Europe; 10 in the Middle East and North Africa, one more than in 2021; and 22 in sub-Saharan Africa, four more than in 2021 (see figure 2.1 and table 2.8).1 As in preceding years, most took place within a single country (intrastate) between government forces and one or more non-state armed groups, or between two or more such groups. Only four were fought between states: the Russia–Ukraine War and low-level border clashes between India and Pakistan, Armenia and Azerbaijan, and Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Two were fought between state forces and armed groups aspiring to statehood: the conflicts between Israel and the Palestinians, and between Türkiye and the Kurds.
