The area of Yuai that remained largely peaceful throughout the three years of civil war, is now witnessing clashes between government and rebels.

In a statement issued on Saturday, the international medical charity said the recent surge in fighting in Yuai town, has left those forced to flee cut off from healthcare.

The medical aid charity pointed out that its national staffs in Yuai town have fled together with the civilian population after the clashes in the area.

"MSF is extremely concerned about the humanitarian consequences of the fighting,” says Liz Harding, MSF’s head of mission for South Sudan.

The organization called on all warring parties to ensure that civilians are protected and that medical and humanitarian facilities as well as staff are respected and protected.

        We don’t need more battalions, we already have all we have to flush out those criminals out. What the government of South Sudan need to do is only to talk to the Nuer elders so that they can speak to those criminals to stop their aimless armed rebellion before they are pounded pretty hard if they don’t heed the calls to stop. And also, the government of South Sudan should also talk to ethiopia>>>

          government and the Gambella region government to let us enter the region to use it if the rebels don’t heed our calls to stop their aimless armed rebellion. South Sudanese people want to face other important issues else where than to always be bogged down our Nuer cousins aimless and useless rebellions.
