Thousands of Sudan’s NISS members stage show of force in Khartoum


December 3, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) asserted its ability to swiftly deal with rebel plots and squash them to protect the nation and its territorial integrity.

The country’s security apparatus on Tuesday concluded a military parade that included 7,000 of its members which marched through different districts of the Sudanese capital over the last few days causing traffic jams and infuriating drivers.

Al-Khalifa Square in Sudan’s twin capital city of Omdurman witnessed the conclusion of this unusual display of force.

The NISS Deputy Director Major General Salah al-Tayeb who addressed the parade stressed that the government is keen on peace and that they are not war mongers but that they will only accept a "peace with dignity with our heads high".

Al-Tayeb said that this procession was meant as a clear message to those who live in luxury hotels in the capitals of Europe as well as Kampala and other international cities in reference to rebel groups who joined ranks under the umbrella Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF).

The NISS official accused the rebels of begging foreigners for food and arms to kill their fellow countrymen in Sudan.

He resolved that the youths of Sudan are ready to crush the insurgency this summer adding that the parade comes in the context of the training and physical preparation to enforce the directives of president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir to establish security and stability in the country.

Battles are reportedly ongoing in Sudan’s West Kordofan state which borders South Kordofan between SRF and the Sudanese army with both sides claiming to be making major strides.

The border states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile have been witnessing armed conflict between the Sudan People Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) which is a member of SRF and the Sudanese army since 2011.

This month several senior Sudanese officials announced that troops are heading to Darfur, South Kordofan, and Blue Nile, saying that the government troops would carry out a major military campaign to eliminate the armed rebellion.

    Yawn! This shows the mentality of those in power... and the NISS are proud of the havoc they caused in Khartoum and Omdurman.?????
    If the government wants our support they need to start trying to connect with us... not trying to intimidate us by showing off their NISS thugs.
