August 30, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – Local security authorities in Sudan’s central state of White Nile announced on Thursday that they have captured a truck full of arms belonging to the rebel Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) as it crossed from the neighboring of South Kordofan en route to the capital Khartoum.

The director of the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) in White Nile, Colonel Khalid Al-Aqeed, said in a press conference that the attempt to smuggle arms into Khartoum is part of a plan to undermine the security and stability of the country. He said that the truck was monitored by security authorities since it began moving from a “neighbouring country”, in a veiled reference to South Sudan which Khartoum accuses of backing the rebels.

White Nile State is bordered by Khartoum State to the north and South Kordofan State to the south, where SRF rebels are mostly active. The state also shares borders with South Sudan’s northern state of Upper Nile.

The NISS official gave a count of the caught arms saying that 70 Kalashnikov rifles were found in the fuel tanker of the truck. He added that the driver was offered a price of 400 Sudanese pounds per piece to transport the arms.

In March Sudan closed its borders with South Sudan and banned cross-border trade over Juba’s alleged support to the rebels. The closure was followed by the outbreak of worst fighting between the two countries since South Sudan split to form an independent state last year.

SRF is a rebel coalition comprising the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) which fought as part of South Sudan’s army during the 1983-2005 civil war, and three rebel groups from the western region of Darfur. The rebels say their aim is to topple the government of President Omer Al-Bashir in Khartoum.

    Human Rights Activists, please, watch out carefully NIF is planning to carry out big massacres in the Capital Khartoum in Revenge for SRF successful efforts to deny Criminal Bashir a chance to pray in Kauda. That’s how they burned thounsands of South Sudanese people in a train at Dheinne. When these racist Arabs failed in war fields, they always turn on civilians.

      When Khartoum tell lies, there must be only one out of 2; that is either their militia army suffered serious defeat or they are about to carry out a massacre against civilians. But the Arab racist in Khartoum have a culture of lying and even use the name of Allah to kill or lie.

        Us again backing the rebbel? When will Khartoum ever do something without mentioning our guillible name in theis mess? We are not afraid of them. If we want, then we can capture that so called "Khartoum" within 24 hrs. We succeded from country a year ago and we have nothing to do with them. Lets them go with their problem.

    With talks just at the corner, Khartoum will shift into propagating lies to deter the talks, it is obvious and something obnoxious that they resort to sheepish ideas to divert attention and put blames on the South. your downfall will come unnoticed and you shall remain in remorse and gazing not believing how it happened.

    It is really interesting that any time there are to be talks about borders, security etc ( such as is happening today with the visit of Thabo Mbeki) that these stories are released by our Govt.
    There is a pattern to these stories.
    I guess tomorrows news will be that our Govt wont continue talks with the rebels due to this matter..which will buy them more time to keep killing our innocent citizens

      Thok Chuni,
      You 100% right, Look at the relationship btwen Ethiopia and Eriteria State, No direct flight from Asmara to Adiss and Border closer is imminenet. Why should South Sudan bother Her self with this terrorist regime in Khartuom. Changing and fabricating stories as means of trading accusing South Sudan of helping Rebels. How many weapon were smugle to Khartuom by Late Dr.Khalil Force???

    The security force in Khartoum is very high and strong. even on every side of a bridge there is a force which keeps an eye on the cars crossing. smuggling weapons into the capital isn’t something easy for rebels, they must be really inteligent to do so. in addition, smuggling weapons into capital doesn’t mean a preparation for a battle, its an assasination attempt.

      Sudan ana,
      You pigs with laundry in your head need to find something to blame when something happen in your dirty country, not all the time you point your dirty fingers to South Sudan. Why do mention the name of god ? Wasn’t you who was crying yesterday that religion and politic are separate ? We all know Sudan is ruled by Islamic Law, is that not politicizing your Islam ? We have right to it.
