SPLM-N confirm fresh attacks in South Kordofan, deny killing of 50 rebels


January 13, 2013 (KHARTOUM) – Sudan people’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) confirmed attacks on the positions of the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) in different areas located east of the capital of South Kordofan State last Friday but denied that the army killed 50 of its fighters.

Al-Sawarmi Khaled, SAF spokesperson said on Friday that the SPLM-N shelled Hamra and El-Ahmier, 15 kilometres east of Kaduglei before to launch a ground attack on Hamra. He added that the Sudanese troops repulsed the assailant and killed 50 rebels besides destroying four tanks.

In a statement he emailed to Sudan Tribune on Saturday, SPLM-N spokesperson Arno Londi said they shelled three positions, Hamra, El-Ahmier and Seref which is located inside Kadugli. He further said their forces launched a ground attack on SAF positions in El-Ahmier.

Arno stressed that SPLM-N forces killed 43 Sudanese soldiers and destroyed two tanks, four vehicles and a big truck.

He said they lost eight fighters and 21 other suffered minor wounds.

Arno also denied Al-Sawarmi’s claims that four SPLM-N tanks were destroyed, insisting they lost only two tanks and destroyed two SAF tanks.

The rebel official on the other hand said Friday’s attacks were in response to the air raids by the Sudanese army targeting civilians in the rebel controlled areas.

He warned that similar attacks will be conducted in the future "as long as (the Sudanese army forces) continue to attack unarmed civilians."

On Friday Al-Sourami stated that the aim of the rebel attack, was " to occupy advanced positions enabling them to shell Kadugli and targeting innocent citizens."

SPLM-N launched several mortars attacks on the state’s capital in October and November 2012 where a number of civilians were killed and wounded.

The rebels said they want to export the conflict to the government controlled towns and to force the Sudanese army to stop air raids targeting civilians in their areas.

The African mediation team failed to organize direct negotiations between the two parties on humanitarian access to the rebels areas or a political solution to the conflict, which started in June 2011.

        Obviously you’re clueless about anything concerning your country or the Republic of the South Sudan. I pity you for coming here almost everyday just to poke fun of yourself. In your country problems have outnumbered the population yet you fail see it. It’s Fascinating that problems like terrorism, hunger, killing, economy meltdown among so many others don’t seem to restrain you.

        Mr. Jalaby, why are you always on the oil agenda? Is it our oil or yours? If it’s yours, then go and export it! You better to shut up. If you’re the one of the oil company employees, then find another job in Sudanese oil companies. I know now why Sudan still behind since an independent. Sudan was built by liars.

        The most respected President of S.Sudan is a humanistic leader, he was a freedom fighter and has no ill-intentions to disarm someone fighting for his freedom. THE SOLUTION IS FOR OMAR TO NEGOTIATE A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT otherwise Hell is opened for you all. Long live SRF, Long live New Dawn

      I don’t think you get it my friend. The SPLA-N is fighting a justify war, no matter what your criminals do at the end of the day SPLM-N/SPLA-N will be victories. You need to be shame of yourself by calling the true sons of the Sudan as South Agents. Arno Lodi is not a liar, its Khalil Saad who is a liar.

        Cont.…He always inflated the number of casualties from SPLA-N, while under reported their losses which is typical of your “airhead” Arab wannabes bigots. Look how naïve you’re by asking SPLA-N to provide you with pictures of your downed fighter jet. Why don’t you ask you’re so called SAF to tell you the true, if any about their downed military plane?
