May 19, 2015 (ADDIS ABABA) – South Sudanese rebels said they have captured yet another strategic oil-rich town of Melut on Tuesday and began shelling the main oilfields of Paloch which is located a few kilometres away.

Also, they dismissed government’s allegations that fighting was taking place inside Malakal on Tuesday, describing the statements from government officials as “desperate propaganda” to try to divert the attention of the public from their significant loss in the oilfields.

“There is no fighting whatsoever in or around Malakal town. The town has been calm since 16 May when our joint forces under the overall command of Major General Johnson Olony captured it,” Machar’s spokesperson, James Gatdet Dak, told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.

Malakal is the capital of the oil-rich Upper Nile state which the rebels captured on Saturday last week.

On Tuesday, spokesperson for the South Sudanese army (SPLA) Colonel Philip Aguer told reporters in Juba that fighting was taking place in Malakal to try to retake the town from the rebels. However, he did not talk about the fighting in the oilfields, north of the capital. He generally said there was fighting going on in Upper Nile state which he said he had “no details” about yet.

But the rebel leader’s spokesperson said the government seemed to have encountered difficulty on how to explain their defeat in the oilfields.

“As we speak, Melut town, which is the headquarters of Melut county, is under our full control since Tuesday. Our forces have started shelling government positions in Paloch which is only 5 kilometres away from Melut town,” he said.

He said "in the next 24 hours or so" the rebels might be in control of the country’s main oilfields.

He also said the attempt by government forces to attack Malakal from its southern part from the direction of Baliet county on Monday was stopped about 30 kilometers away when they were repulsed and dispersed in disarray.

“Ask those inside Malakal town and they will tell you that the town has been calm. Pro-Salva Kiir’s soldiers are nowhere to be seen,” he said.

Sources residing in the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) compound in Malakal however told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday that they were not aware of any fighting taking place in or near the town.

In Melut, Dak added that the opposition forces captured a large quantity of heavy weaponry in Melut town and destroyed government’s ferries mounted with heavy artilleries.

Local sources in the area on Tuesday told Sudan Tribune that fighting was taking place around the oilfields but could not say which side was in control.

UN REPORTS MILITARY MOVEMENTS IN MELUT

In New York, the deputy spokesman for the UN secretary-general, Farhan Haq, said the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) reported "military movements" in the area of Melut.

"Three explosions were heard approximately 40 kilometres from the Mission’s base," Haq said.

He said that 270 displaced persons have arrived at the Mission’s protection site in Melut on Tuesday morning. Further, between 250 to 350 civilians sought shelter "at a newly allocated protection area adjacent to the Mission’s base," he added.

The opposition faction (SPLM-IO) said they targeted the oilfields in response to full scale offensive on their positions in the three states of Upper Nile region (Unity, Upper Nile and Jonglei). They also aimed to close down the main source of revenue, the oil, which they said Juba was using to finance the war.

Oil companies have closed down and evacuated their international and national staff as fighting reportedly got closer on Tuesday following announcement by the rebels to target the production area.

    Paloich is 30km away from Melut town not 5km. Where do these imbeciles get their information from? The first casualty of war is the truth, and so I will defer judgement until the prescribed time [of 24 hours] has passed.

      Rommel,

      I am back because I now know how you and your incompetent president feel suffocated, strangled and squeezed. It seems you don’t know the distance between Melut and Paloch. It is just less than 5km, they are one actually and Paloch gets its water from the water pipeline from Melut town. Ask minister Dhieu of petroleum to educate you on this distance.

        Yesterday you denying that fighting reached the oilfields, today your concern is about distances and 24 hours ultimatum by the opposition forces to control the whole area of Paloch. Ahaha. You seem to be changing posts. You lied that fighting was taking place in Malakal was simply to divert attention of your supporters from the defeat in the oilfields. Just wait, hear and watch as things unfold.

          And for your information, don’t even attempt to argue with me on the distance between Melut and Paloch headquarters where the airport is located. I know that place very well and walked it on foot several times between Paloch and Melut town. It takes less than 3o minutes on foot and about 5 minutes by car.

              New paloch is a distance of 37 kilometer away from Melut County heads quarters. It is within the protected oil field of Paloch. Therefore protection is granted.

                As usual, who is the fool now between me and you. You now talk of a "new" Paloch of 37kms away, I am talking of the original Paloch and its airport where oil companies are located, which is just 5kms from Melut town. When did you establish a new Paloch, foolish liar. I hope you now understand that fighting is taking place in the oilfields. I call you ’spin doctor.’

I will not stay longer on this forum wasting my precious time arguing with a foolish liar, who thinks he is smart. Melut is gone and soon will the oilfields. No waste to defecate from your stomach in Juba soon. You will kill yourselves!!

                Melut town is 42 km away from Paloich airport — which is just slightly north of the Paloich oilfields. Here’s yet another source: http://www.distancecalculator.net/

                Now, tell us again how it is that you covered over 30 km [with your feet] in just half an hour? That’s more than kilometer a minute. Whoa, you’re fast... but you’re not, are you? You’re an idiot and a pathological liar...

                  See how you keep changing posts thinking it is a smart way to lie, but it is foolishness. Now you only talk of Paloch airport, not Paloch town where the oil companies are located. Paloch town is between the airport and Melut town. But yes the airport is part of the oilfields general location. Melut, Paloch town and airport are closer. You don’t know the area by yourself.

                      I am talking of the original Paloch and its airport where oil companies are located.

                      I then provided a source detailing the distance between Melut town and the Paloich airport — which is 42 km. Before you were proven wrong, you had no problem conflating the Paloich airport and the oilfields...

You laughably claim that I introduced talk of the airport, when it was you. Like most liars you lie so much you lose track of your lies. Let me repeat the facts: Melut town is 37 km from the Paloich oilfields. Melut town is 42 km away from the Paloich airport.

                  Like father-like son. Anyway, whether it is 1km, 10km or 30km away, there is no difference. You have been defeated regardless of the distances. Our forces have covered all those distances and captured Tangrial refinery facility, Melut town headquarters and besieged Paloch oilfields? Do we agree?

          What do you expect from the fools like Rommel and his primitive siblings. They even think that 10,000 soldiers can be dropped by airplane. They don’t even know how many seats their airplanes have or how expensive it is to hire just one plane. It can take them 3 years to drop 10,000 soldiers, not even where to find those soldiers as all have been already deployed to Upper Nile region.

        Those fools are done. See how their primitive supporters are concentrating on distances our gallant forces covered in chasing them. Their concern are the distances they managed to run through and not about that their lifeline towns and oilfields are captured and besieged. Soon they will fight among themselves inside Juba.

                It would not end the war, you illiterate chump. For almost two decades, your people were fed like dogs fighting for Khartoum while artificial famines were created in our lands by your Arab masters, and we still kept on fighting. The war will become more brutal and you will suffer for it, not us. Those currently on the fence will jump right in. We will not have slaves as leaders.

              i think you were not alone during struggle by claiming to be the victory of southerners to be yours, you are just a nepotist by remembering only Dinkas as only martyrs in south Sudan and uses our national resources to be yours only undermining other ethnicity the 63 tribes of south sudan,
              secondly if you were strong enough where are you now with the shiluk in Upper Nile?

                Another imbecilic Nuer comes out to play. The vast majority of your tribesmen were with Khartoum during the war. You were slaves, oilfield guard-dogs and ’Generals’ in the SAF — like Paulino Matip. Your contribution doesn’t even match the contribution of one Dinka section — Aweil.

                  The initial problems between Garang and Kawac arose because of fears of the large numbers of Malwal who joined the SPLA campaigns in Ethiopia. In modern times it is claimed that 80 percent of the ethnic composition of the SPLA is Dinka. Of this percentage, however, 45 percent comprises of Malwal recruits alone.

                    By 1991 almost one-half of the SPLA forces were non-Dinka, although most of the higher-ranking officers remained Dinka. (Global security) Source: http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/para/spla-1.htm

                      In 1988, the SPLM and international human rights organizations accused the Sudanese government of attempted genocide of the Dinka. Modern military equipment, including helicopters and cargo planes adapted as bombers, were used to devastating effect against Dinka villages, and more than 1 million Dinka are believed to have died in the conflict.

                        Over the eighteen years of the war, half of the two million estimated deaths are thought to be Dinka, bringing their current population to approximately three million out of Sudan’s total estimated population of twenty-six million.

                          ..Khartoum bombed our areas, unleashed Arab militias that destroyed crops, stole livestock and made the planting seasons all but untenable all throughout the duration of the war. Khartoum created artificial famines in our lands. We lost 250, 000 people in 1988 alone. We then lost another 100, 000 in 1999 when certain tribes were being fed like dogs...

                            So you mean you will fight on as rebels and not government, right? Differentiate between fighting in the bush for 50 years and fighting as government in towns with money, salary, sophisticated weapons, etc. First, you will face protests if salaries are not paid. And you will have no bullets to fire when oil revenues are cut. You will see banks looted, collapse of the state as we know it.

                              Riek Will never rule through rebellion. Even if kiir fail today which is highly unlikely, there are tones of able generals to take on riek. Rememer not single dinka town have every been captured by nuer rebels in barh El ghazal , the power house of all dinka community. We can select more likable general that can mobilise 1 million soldiers to defeat rebels in all corners of ss.

                            I know you feel the heat now but you’re most welcome to join the people moment. Otherwise, go to Meluth frontline instead of barking here which is not helpful to those of yours who are dying for nothing just because foolish Kiir from is a Dinka. You will all be perish soon, specifically you Dinkas Upper Nile for not knowing your own geographically.

The Dinka will be a permanent demographic fixture in Upper Nile. There is nothing that slaves of Khartoum can do about it. Keep barking, dog.

    You’re not alon, it’s better to burn it down to ashes rather than being called Dinka Kingdom.
