    JEM and others Darfurian rebels need to know that, these rebels in Western Bhar El Ghazal region have been hiring by Omar al Bashir to fights with you guys and you must find them and kick them badly so that, they will learn lesson. These rebels who calls themselves South Sudanese hence, they are absolutely agents of Khartoum’s government because they received guns supplies from Sudan’s government.
