SLM-AW rebels capture Sudanese army compound in North Darfur


November 26, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — The rebel Sudan Liberation Movement led by Abdel Wahid Al-Nur (SLM-AW) said they took the control of a military compound in North Darfur and defeated a Sudanese force that attempted to retake it.

Since last May, rebel groups intensified their attacks against the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) in the two states of South and North Darfur while the government militias carried attacks on camps of internally displaced civilians and villages in North Darfur .

Nimir Abdel Rahman SLM-AW official spokesperson told Sudan Tribune they attacked on Friday a SAF compound in Ed- Al-Nabag, 20 kilometres east to Kebkabiya, which is at 110 kilometres west of Al-Fasher, capital of North Darfur state.

He said the SLM fighters took the control of the military base including and all the logistical an military materials including seven vehicles, guns, ammunitions food and fuel.

Nimir added they repulsed another attack on Saturday evening about 6:00pm (local time) by a Sudanese army force composed of 50 vehicles and two tanks when they tried to to retake the area.

"But our fighters led by commander Saleh Adam Abdallah crashed this force which arrived from Kebkabiya and we killed the colonel Saad Jabir who commanded this forces," Nimir said.

He said they destroyed the two tanks and 13 vehicles and seized 37 others.

The rebel official pointed out that Sudanese 65 soldiers were killed in Ed- Al-Nabag which is now is under the full control of their troops.

He disclosed they will soon appoint an administrator of the area.

Ed- Al-Nabag is the principal place in Jebel Fi area in Kebkabiya district.

Nimir explained that they attacked Ed- Al-Nabag compound because the army were preparing to attack their positions in the adjacent area, "so we decided to defend ourselves and anticipated their move," he affirmed.

Sudanese army was not reachable to comment on the rebel claims. Also, SAF spokesperson did not issue a statement on the fight.

SLM-AW and two other rebel groups in Darfur, SLM-Minnawi and Justice and Equality Movement formed an alliance with the SPLM-North which fight the Sudanese army in South Kordofan.

The rebel official derided Khartoum’s announcement of a foiled coup aiming to topple the government of President Omer Al-Bashir saying they want to change the regime and its policy not persons.

He said that "it is high time for change in Sudan" asserting that Bashir is not able to lead the country because of his health troubles and the regime is undermined by power struggle between the different factions.

    Great job but disunited of Darfur rebels is a problem. You cannot defeat this regime if you’re not united first. You should learn from our struggle if you want to be successful as us. Disunity set us back for 22 years because Arabs use money to divide us and kill ourselves just like what you’re all doing.

      Fantastic job SRF. Now, why does Sudan trying to open another front against South Sudan and they can’t barly handle SRF? Spla needs to start sending rockets deep inside Sudan everytime they bomb our territory..Look at Hamas, they are learning in a hard way..If they bomb our territory again and Spla/splam does not react, I’m going to lose faith in them..RIP to those 8 civilians

        there is a difference, south sudan is a clear target. it can’t hide, SRF is not an army its a rebel group, they can hide wherever they want. they hide and attack. if we kick them out from an area they go hide somewhere else. and what shit does SPLA do? we bombed you like 20 times and you did no shit, thats why SPLA is easier than SRF

          Northern Sudanese,
          You are very stupid. SRF are controling Nuba Mounatains. Nothing you can do penguins to fight them. Instead of sitting under computer and lecture us about war, show us first that you, NCP and your wicked army are in control of Nuba Mountains, otherwise, you are just black Africa man who is very confuse and needs help. Take care my black skin brother. You are lost. Come back.

          Northern Sudan..You and I know pretty well that if Spla want to Liberate the whole Sudan, they can do it in no time..We forced Bashire to come to table and sign the CPA..If there is going to be war this time, we are going to capture Sudan and we are going to stay in Sudan until you elected a pro South Sudanese President

      Northern Sudanese,
      You do not like truth about your wicked country, that’s Ok. Many people in North Sudan do not like truth but lies. You are one of them, but you are here among South Sudanese people who will tell nothing but the truth and nothing but the truth. Take care our brother in color who is lost. Come back to your people in Africa. Arabs are very stupid people.

      SLM/SRF should have join operations, instigate Sobatage within Khartuom now and close all the root to other Major sudanese towns. They take the decision like Congoless who fight to liberate their people from bad governance. Sudanese have poorly governed by NCP. remove them now. Start kick start operation in all corners of Sudan. please do not concentrate operations in Darfur alone, Port Sudan, BN
