    This is the fact that Sudan government lies to Sudanese people that they will capture Juba by force. Bashier mislead Sudanese in order to stay in power. Because Sudanese don’t study to get the facts, Sudan will be in dangerous stag unless they over through Bashier regime.

      This is a great victory and achievment to our gallant Army.
      SPLA are really professional army compare with NIF terrorists of NCP. SAF and Haroun " Take No prisoners" need to take example from the true army of south sudan who are repecting the Human Right of prisoners.

      The youths in Khartoum who know how to read English news, knows exactly that their government is lying to them in the media and that’s why some of them are secretly escaping northward to Egypt Sudan border.

      Unfortunately they are getting roundup by force to the battlefield without proper training. They are just going to be sitting duck for SPLA! How sad!

        PKM, honestly brother..the regime in Khartoum has lied too much to its citizens but we must prove them liars to the public so that, they will not repeat it again...Sudan TV is dominant now because all those dudes in Khartoum have ran out of words..probably I suspect something must be cooking in Khartoum and we shall know by the end of the day what they are unto....regime change or planning.

      Justice VS Evil,

      we have shown the world that we are fighting a just war. South Sudan can bring North Sudan prisoners of war to Juba while Northern troops are killing our prisoners of war.

      North Sudan’s Minister of defense, Hussein is crying for oil in the South but not crying the Northern Sudanese dying on South Sudan soil for sharia foolish war.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=31053

    SPLA has a great history in terms of professionalism and abide by the international norms of conflict and its prisoners of war...I remember my time in Yei battles of 1997 where 3,000 Sudanese POWs and were transferred to ICRC who took them to their families in Khartoum. Sadeq Mahdi, and NDA members visited them in Yei and Dr. John Garang addressed them. search youtube and you will find it there.

    hi Mosa Mel, wasup man? are you online? I agree with you man,,,,Sudanese have been kept in dark by the regime not to know the truth. this is the same thing they did during the CPA era where Sudanese were surprised by the independent of South Sudan and other families waited for their kids to return from South Sudan after being promised by the regime but to no avail...none of them were alive...

    The government of the South Sudan had strongly understood the Arab intention, for expecting destroying unity State by killed innocient people. and the international community had been quited for durration of time to question the Northern Sudan government for why they don’t respect the peace of independent in Southern Sudan. However, we are continue to ask our Living God Almighty, to make Arab gr

    Well treated and well fed! Very humane treatment. With Hamed Haroun commanding soldiers to eat rebels, it will be unlikely for SAF to treat SPLA soldiers humanely if they ever capture them.

    I have been saying that Omar bashier step on Salva kiir Mayardit tail which caused a severe bite. SPLA captured thausands of these Arabs/Khartoum previously and they set free by Dr John Garang de Mabior.Now, again, 14 SAF are captured and they will be set free again to their families. This means that SPLM/A has modalities and civilizations. can you repeated attacking the South yeah bashier?

      Sudan Government to pay the looted oil from Heglig oil field for the last 9 years to South Sudan since it belongs to the Republic of South Sudan. my calculations are as follow. Heglig produce 115,000 bpd x 365 days of the year x 9 years x $70 pb = $26,444,250,000 (Twenty Six Billions, four hundred and forty four Millions and two hundred and fifty Thousand USD$ plus the recent theft of oil

    As a military strategist and analyst looking at the calibre of the POWs, something tells that, Khartoum regime is in crisis. the old men (probably retiree) displayed here clearly tells that SAF has no manpower or real soldiers (young) have refused to fight an unjust war with the South... Sudan must reconsider peaceful solution to the country problem then military means it is not capable of doing.
