BREAKING NEWS- Darfur JEM warns of imminent attacks against Sudan government


December 22, 2008 (LONDON) — The rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) warned today that it would attack very soon the positions of the Sudanese government.

The JEM deputy general commander, Suleiman sandal, urged in a press statement released today the Sudanese to remain away from the military positions in all the Sudanese cities and to stay at home because "our attack against these cities is imminent."

In a second separate statement Ahmed Tugud, the secretary of political affairs, called on the Sudanese soldiers to join the rebel movement adding "you are not our enemies." He also pledged to retain their salaries, rights and positions in the army.

It is not clear whether the rebel movement intends to attack the capital Khartoum or other cities. However, Sandal in his statement said "our warning extends to all diplomatic missions and embassies" to take the necessary measures to ensure the safety and security of their employees and properties.

On May 10, the rebel troops attacked the position of the Sudanese army in Omdurman, the twin city of the capital Khartoum. More than 222 people were killed in this raid.

Since, the rebel movement pledged to attack Khartoum again but the Sudanese government said it was ready to such attack.
