SPLM-N repulses fresh government attack in South Kordofan: spokesperson


May 14, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – The rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) said on Wednesday they had repulsed attacks by the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) on its positions in several areas in South Kordofan state.

SPLM-N spokesperson Arnu Ngutulu Lodi in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune said their fighters inflicted heavy losses on the assailant forces when it attempted to capture Sabat in Dalami county in the northern part of the restive state on 11 May.

Lodi added they repulsed another attack on Tomna village in the same area.

The rebel official said that they are fighting against the Sudanese troops which attacked them on Wednesday in Werne and Kau-nyaro areas.

He claimed they killed over 10 soldiers and an officer commanding the force that attacked Sabat.

SAF spokesperson, Al-Sawarmi Khaled was not available for comment.

Observers say the recent attacks were carried out in the northern parts of the troubled state where the SPLM-N rebelled since June 2011.

The two warring parties are expected to meet in Addis Ababa this month.

Sudanese officials say attacks against the rebels will continue unless the latter accept to sign a ceasefire agreement and negotiate a peace agreement with the government.

        No body says the military solution will end the war but the military operation and weakening the rebel power will lead to the required political solution that every body agrees on!
        Let me ask you these questions, why the war was erupted in South Kordofan in the first place? what is Nuba mountains problem in Sudan?

          is there any similarity between the south problem when it was united with Sudan and the Nuba mountains in terms of: language, culture, religion,etc?
          can you separate Nuba Mountain people from other Sudanese people in terms of having different identity than the rest of Sudanese people? all these questions apply on Darfourians and Blue Nile people!!

            Look boy, Nuba Mountains have no major problems in Sudan and if we talk about less developments in this area then all Sudan far regions in the west, east and north are suffering from the same problem and that because was due of the south war which shrunk Sudan economy and took all its resources and led to poverty in all Sudan, that war is finished now and the

              it was due to south war and the south has gone now to face what was 100% expected to happen, I said it many times before that "As soon as separated, the south will make a high jump in the dark", ironically, the south is still jumping high in the sky during the dark and that high jump should be recorded in Guinness Book!

                Anyway, the south is not our issue now and let us go back to Nuba Mountains issue, first of all Al-Hilo doesn’t belong to Nuba Mountain, second Al-Hilo led the war because he lost the governor seat for S Kordofan and the war was never because of less development, marginalization, secular state, bla bla .. al that are just bullshit and an excuse to cover the war!

                  Unfortunately, SPAL/M laughed at Nuba Mountains and fooled them and used them as fuel against their war with Khartoum by calling for one united Sudan with new vision (just tell me, since when SPLA/M have ever a vision?), and sent them against the wind when the war is over and Junobean voted 98% yes for separation and less than 2% voted for "New Sudan", what a joke?!

                    Because Al-Hilo is an agent, he is now using Nuba Mountains people as fuel in the war that’s going on between southerners, just tell me, why involving yourself in that war? are you Junobey?!!
                    Al-Hilo has no vision no goal at all just works as "on call", as long as he gets paid then he will do the job for you!!
