August 18, 2014 (JUBA) – The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) has called on the warring parties to respect the lifesaving work of the world body and ensure unhindered freedom of movement for its personnel as well as other humanitarian workers in the country.

The appeal comes after three of UN patrols were reportedly stopped by the South Sudanese army (SPLA) troops, who behaved “aggressively” towards UN personnel.

According to the UN mission, the situation in Bentiu and Rubkona in Unity state remained tense over the weekend, following Friday’s clashes between the pro-government army and opposition forces.

Sporadic fighting reportedly occurred south of the UN base in Bentiu on Monday, days after the mission received reports of sporadic firing west of the Rubkona airstrip and near Bentiu bridge in Unity state.

The two warring parties have accused each other of violating a ceasefire agreement signed in January and re-committed to in May.

Members of the UN Security Council (UNSC) warned of sanctions against anyone considered a stumbling block to the peace process.
