April 16, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – Eastern areas in South Kordofan state, including areas bordering South Sudan, are now free of rebels, said the military spokesperson of the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF), Al-Sawarmi Khalid, on Wednesday.

SAF “managed to free the following areas (in South Kordofan): Mansoura, Tommy, Tanqlto, Maqlam, Kalopa, Alhuta, Almanazla, Alpirah, Jabel Bermil, Jabel Krmo, Jabel Omdurman and Tarawa. The armed forces have achieved a major victory on the remnants of the rebels, inflicting significant loss of life and equipment on them,” Khalid said.

He added that this action comes in line with the second phase of the so-called “Decisive Summer” operation, aimed at clearing eastern South Kordofan and border areas from rebel groups.

Sudanese defence minister Abdel Rahim Hussein announced two weeks ago the launch of military operations on positions of rebels in Darfur region, South Kordofan, Blue Nile states.

The Rapid Support Forces, government militias reorganised under the command of the National Intelligence and Security Services, participate in these attacks alongside the Sudanese army.

The spokesperson of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) was not reachable for comment.

The SPLM-N and its allied rebel groups from Darfur region formed a joint command for their troops based in South Kordofan and attempted to extend their military action into North Kordofan state, last year.

Negotiating teams from the Sudanese government and the SPLM-N will meet next Tuesday in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, in a bid by the African Union mediation to end the nearly three year conflict in Blue Nile ans South Kordofan states.

However, the SPLM-N said it would stick to its demand for a comprehensive process and reject any discussion on the Two Areas only.

    Good job SAF!
    Juba never stopped supporting SPLA-N & JEM and now has gone further more and recruited them to fight Nuer rebellion,so now they’ve two jobs:fighting Nuer rebel & jeopardizing Sudan national security!
    Well,if you don’t know,now Janjaweed have joined Nuer rebellion and fighting with them shoulder to shoulder: SPLA-N,JEM,SPLA and UPDF!

    The misery of Sudan is Kampalla.
    We should all stand together and move the basttlee-field to Kampalla.
    Lets see how good the UPDF are when the war is in there own turf!
    Musevini has killed too many Sudanese, starting with John Garang, George Athor and the list goes own...
    Payback time is coming for this puppet in Africa.

    Both Sectarian and their affiliated military rulers all from North Sudan, Ismail Al-Azahri, General Ibrahim Abbud, Sadiq1 & Sadiq2, LT.Col. Jaafar Nimeiry, Swahar El-Daaf, and Brigadier Omar Bashir said thousand times that they have cleared South Sudan of rebels, but Independence of South Sudan has witnessed them all liars. This is the same episode that will end with Republics of Darfur & Nuba Mts

      Akol Liai Mager,
      The south separation didn’t come as result of SPLA victory over SAF having the fact SPLA were never able to capture Juba during all 21 years war but in fact came as result of a big dirty deception made by US!
      Ironically, US who separated you from Sudan they will again attach you to Sudan after they knew their big mistake!

        The facts are that, Arabs and Muslims never accept their wrong doings. Instead you blame America, West, Churches, communism and Israel for the outcomes of your inhumane and evil actions. Just read North Sudanese comments at Albony’s article at Al-Rakoba Arabic Online. The minority Arabic cliques in Khartoum all agreed that, non-Arab Sudanese will go.

            Northern Sudanese,
            You still lying like before. Darfur, Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile will be history soon like South Sudan. They will never go back to Sudan and stay with Fake Arabs like before, never. You people have been ruling Sudan for more than 50 by telling lies to people. You are discovered Fake Arabs.

            Your name tells that you know the truth. North Sudanese resistance armies under Malik Agar, Abdulwahid Mohd Nur, Al-Hilu and Minawe will liberate their people soon and you would be taking refuge in Nuba Mts or Darfur, that is the fact you know and you don’t have to identify yourself. So, what about Shambat’s residents who have been gunned down by NIF’ and Iranian god’s army? Are they rebels too
