British Troops, proudly wearing their distinctive blue UN berets arrives in Juba on 2 May 2017 (UN/Isaac Billy Photo)
May 2, 2017 (JUBA) – The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said about 400 United Kingdom troops arrived to serve as peacekeepers.

"British troops, proudly wearing their distinctive blue UN berets arrived in Juba today to join the United Nations Mission in South Sudan," UNMISS said in a statement that was released late on Tuesday.

According to UNMISS, the UK contingent will provide a Military Engineering Taskforce to the Malakal and Bentiu Protection of Civilians Sites (POCs), as well as a Level II Hospital in Bentiu.

Also, British troops will also conduct construction to improve the accommodation, security and drainage in the areas, along with the construction of a jetty on the Nile River and a helicopter landing site.

"Alongside their UNMISS colleague, their efforts will make a contribution to protecting civilians and creating conditions to enable the delivery of humanitarian aids," the UNMISS added.

With almost 400 troops in total, this will be one of the UK’s largest operational deployments across the world.

In addition to the UNMISS troops, 4,000 Regional Protection Force members approved by the UN Security Council last year began arriving in Juba this week to pacify the main city and provide security to vital infrastructure and routes leading out of Juba.

There are about 12,000 peacekeepers serving in UNMISS, protecting more than 200,000 civilians in six POCs.

The civilians fled violence from government troops at the onset of conflict in December 2013.

      lino,

      Do you mean British troops represent the world ? What about those UN peacekeepers in South Sudan, from Ethiopia, Rwanda, Bangladesh, India, Ghana. We have 1200 forces from UN in South Sudan plus 4000 coming from Africa AU, who do they represent? OH my God!!!! Africa educated people still believe all Africa issues must be solved by White. 400 people from UK will be only in Malakal and Bentu

                You have good points but let me tell you one thing. Until your people meaning all south Sudanese and their leaders accept the reality and the fact that the whole country or ¾ of your populations in now in refuge, then there is no reason why we can point fingers to those who are willing to help.

I am not a south Sudanese but I pity you guy’s situation and I hope that when people air their views they should be thankful that someone somewhere is contributing and helping the suffering people of South Sudan.

                                      South Sudan has been given series of benefit o doubt to correct behaviour of atrocities, lying, impunities in the eye of international community. But all efforts and attempt fall to ears of lunatic deaf and ignorant people who called themselves as politicians and elite, get ready for regime change which you been guessing and failed correct yourself.

Bangladesh Japanese, Chinese and India are not regional forces under UN. Do you know that those British forces were in South Sudan before but they ran away during J1 incident? Even regional forces are under UN, under the world.
