May 30, 2014 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) said the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) bombarded during the last three days Kauda, a rebel stronghold in the Nuba Moutains area, South Kordofan state.

“More than 53 bombs were dropped on residential areas, schools, hospitals, and farms,” SPLM-N spokesperson, said Arnu Ngutulu Loddi in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune on Friday.

According to Loddi, an Anyonov dropped 8 bombs on Tuesday 27May, causing damage to some buildings in the town which is located at about 100 kilometers east of Kadugli, the state capital.

The next day, 28 May, air strikes by an Antonov and a Sukhoi-24 on Kauda destroyed 4 houses, also one man and two children were wounded.

“On May 29, 2014, a Sukhoi-24 bombed Kauda with 14 bombs, horrifying civilians and destroying buildings,” he concluded.

Right groups accuse the Sudanese army of "indiscriminate" aerial attacks on the Nuba Mounyains.

Canada, EU and US condemned earlier this month aerial bombardments on 1 and 2 May 2014 of the Mother of Mercy medical facility in the Nuba Mountains in South Kordofan.

“The civilians of the Nuba Mountains continue to endure relentless aerial bombardment by the military forces of the Khartoum regime—without condemnation, indeed largely without notice,” said Eric Reeves on Friday.

“But for the people of the Nuba, the realities of such constant attacks—all of them war crimes under the terms of the Rome Treaty that is the statutory basis for the International Criminal Court—are ever-present, destroying their lives and livelihoods,” he further said in a short statement extended to Sudan Tribune..

The Sudanese army’s spokesman could not be immediately reached.

Sudanese military officials said this week they target Kauda, but a rebel sources speaking to Sudan Tribune on conditions of anonymity ruled out a ground attack by the government troops saying they are far from the rebel stronghold.
