South Sudan will be the graveyard of Darfur rebels - official


March 27, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — The Director of the National Intelligence and Security services (NISS) scoffed Tuesday at the efforts of the Sudanese rebels to topple regime in Khartoum, reaffirming that Darfur rebels would not be allowed to return to western Sudan.

Mohamed Atta al-Moula Abbas held a press conference in Khartoum where he denounced the attack by the South Sudan army on the government troops in Heglig and reaffirmed that Sudan Armed Forces repelled the assailants.

Juba is accused of harbouring and supporting a coalition of Sudanese rebels including their former comrades of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement – North (SPLM-N), Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), and two factions of the Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) led by Abdel Wahid al-Nur(SLM-AW) and Minni Minnawi (SLM-MM).

Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF)’s rebels operate in South Kordofan, to where Darfur groups moved many of their troop normally operating in western Sudan. The rebel joint force is led by Abdelzaiz Helu, SPLM-N deputy chairman and commander in chief of SPLM-N fighters.

Atta stressed at his press conference held at the NISS’s premises that the move of JEM forces to South Sudan means that they are condemned to stay there or to die. He said South Sudan will be their "incinerator" but they would not be allowed to return back to Darfur.

He further disclosed that JEM fighters had sought to enter the South Sudan since last October, but the Sudanese army hindered their plans and delayed it to December when the rebels attacked North Kordofan to divert the attention of the government troops to allow their former leader to cross to South Sudan.

During North Kordofan attacks, Sudanese army killed the rebel leader Khalil Ibrahim.

Atta said that the military operations continue in North Darfur to chase what he called JEM remnants and the army besiege SLM-AW fighters in Jebel Marra. He also pointed out that the security situation in Darfur is better than before as military operations decrease.

JEM said on Monday its fighters attacked government’s militias who burnt down four villages (Anka, Bireedeek and Nago Jarra) in North Darfur state.

The rebel group said the militiamen killed “an unspecified number of people, looted animal wealth and dismantled water pumps that supplied water to these villages."

      Khartoum will be the graveyard of the retarded NCP officials.

      The whole of N. Sudan cannot possibly be behind SAF, because over 60,000 SRF fighters are whopping SAF’s ass supported by the population of the marginalized areas, and some wise Arabized Sudanese in the far north & east. So we’re talking about millions, so keep deceiving yourself. RACIST RETARDS!

    Sudan Tribune is now the mouthpiece of the Sudanese intelligence just like Sudan Media Center. Why is this incompetent news organization spewing this nonsense propaganda aimed at intimidating JEM soldiers? Darfur is for Darfurians and JEM are operating exclusively in Darfur and within Sudan’s borders. That is their homeland. There is no evidence of JEM being in South Sudan proper! None!

    Even if they are here,we have right(s) to allow any one into South Sudan-the Vision of the Sudanese People’s Republic is in South Sudan and the SPLA is the legitimate army for the whole of 9 bordered Sudan.Not militias and mercenaries in the case of the so-called SAFS-which kill and terrorized the citizens.

    It must be very painful for Khartoum to have so many problems. The reason these goons are having so many problems is there "Koran" is a dumb book of nonsenses. NIF — Islamic fanatics are so stupid they can’t differentiate the right from wrong. Were is Allah to rescue these inbreeds, or stop inbreeding of relatives in the north Sudan.

      These guys are simply fools. Have they decided to expell the Darfuris altogether to South Sudan when they are the premus acupants of that land? This is insane. Well, these traitors say one thing here and another there, just like what happened in Syria today. The government announced cease-fire but killed its own people. Examine that.
