"Yesterday 16/1/2017 at 7;00 am SPLM/N forces in Blue Nile region repulsed NCP forces and militias raid on SPLA/N outpost in Alruum area," said SPLM-N spokesperson Arnu Ngutulu Lodi in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.
He further said one SPLA fighter was slightly wounded in his shoulder, adding they cannot give account about the causalities of the government troops.
"But there are signs of blood in their fleeing routs," he added.
Since more than a year, thanks to the regional and international efforts, the government and the SPLM-N stopped the fighting in the Two Areas as they are committed to unilateral cessations of hostilities.
However, this the third time since two months that the SPLA-N accuses Khartoum of breaching the unilateral truce.
The Sudanese army refuses to comment on these claims.
Last Thursday the Sudanese government announced a six-month unilateral cessation of hostilities.
