According to the SPLA-IO Deputy Military Spokesperson Lam Paul Gabriel, the attack occurred on 13th June, at around 5:00 am when the government forces hit the SPLA IO position in Bagaari area of Wau State.

"The SPLA IO forces of Div. 6 withdrew tactically to avoid civilians casualties but yesterday the 14/06/2018, at around 10:00 am, they (Div 6 forces) recuperated the base and killed 10 enemy soldiers," he further said.

He added that the government forces on Thursday 14 June carried out another assaulted their positions in Wad Aalil and Bazia county adding they repulsed these attacks

The rebel official called on the CTSAMM and UNMISS to investigate these "acts of aggression and provocation" by the government’s forces.


Hundreds of displaced persons on Thursday fled Wathlelo Payam in Roc-Roc Dong county in Wau State after attacks by the government forces on their villages.

IDPs who fled the areas said SPLA forces on Wednesday morning raided the villages and burned their houses.

“It was very clear that the attackers are the government forces, they come from Kwajiena county targeting the whole area, they have looted all our belongings, goats, Doura (Sorghum) grains, and chickens,” said Buola Kuol who was speaking to Sudan Tribune after his arrival to Wau on Thursday.

He added attackers killed four people and captured seven others.

Several IDPs said the opposition forces fled the area they run away and the SPLA forces turned against the civilians and burned their villages to ashes.


The SPLM-IO deputy spokesperson also said the government forces are preparing to attack their positions in Imotong State.

Government forces and militias from Juba, Torit, Magwi and Ayaci counties are expected to attack the SPLA-IO positions of Pogee and outposts in Ayaci county at any time, he said.

"This imminent attack is being planned and sanctioned by authorities of Torit state; Magwi and Ayaci counties (2 weeks ago) and is facilitated by office of Lt. General JJ Okot, the SPLA D/CoGS for Administration and Finance and IG governor of so-called Torit state; Alberto Tobiolo Oromo," he said.

    These hungry rebels must shut the heel up! When will they stop taking civilians in the countryside and blaming it on the government? Why president kiir is so soft on these thugs? All rebels must be wiped out inorder for South Sudan to have peace. Propagating nonsensical become their daily bread.

      What a lie!!! There are no Riak’s rebels in Bahr Gazal who can fight the government. If one read this article carefully, you will find two things. IDs said rebels ran away when SPLA came, Rebels said they fought back. Big lie.

      Kush Natives,
      One really wonders, where do these SUDAN TRIBUNE propagandists often get these rebels at? It seems like there are some creeps who have invested heavily in the continuation of war in South Sudan solely to achieve their dirty conspiracy of making our country their new DRC, CAR, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan or Ukraine. And this is precisely because of our resources, lands>>>>

        and our Nile waters. Many of South Sudanese idiots have closed their damn tiny brains to notice these dirty intrigues being played about over our country & our people. But will later wake up like spooked birds after their villages have been taken over the criminals they call allies & friends like they have already done in Gambella region, Central Kenya, some part of Zambia, Mozambique, Angola,>>>

          Zimbabwe, South Africa or Namibia. But as always the case, it would be lumped on the Dinkas/Jaang necks as the ones who are bringing the foreign occupiers. Some traitors & big losers like Pagan Amuom, Thomas Cirillo, Riek Machar, Lam Akol & Majak Agoot are all on records giving our country to their UN NEW WORLD ORDER government. And this is precisely why the losers & traitors are refusing>>>

            to come & join our national dialogue. They want to be brought back by their foreign masters from the US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs & some of their creepy allies in IGAD like ethiopia, North Sudan & Kenya so that they can come & be protected by the UNIMISS & the so-called rapid protection force (RPF). Good luck to our losers & traitors with their foreign masters>>>

              There is no country where the opposition share power with the government, it is either you are in the government or in oppositions. But since their foreign masters from the US, the UK, their UN, their sleazy NGOs & some of their creepy allies in between like ethiopia, North Sudan or Kenya have banked their lust for our country & influence our people, they have taken these losers & traitors>>>

                    The US, the UK, their UN & their sleazy NGOs have lost leverage they used to enjoy over our country & our people with their reckless regime change business. And so their only dirty game left on evil sleeves is to use our country & our people as their NEW COLD WAR project with blackmails & coercion through their puppets & traitors like Pagan Amuom, Riek Machar, Thomas Cirillo, Lam Akol, Majak Agoot

And then the evils would run & toss their champagne glasses in their boardrooms and brag, Western civilization>>>

                        Tell these simple facts to some our Nuers ke Nyantoc, Shilluks & some Equatorian boneheads. And they will never ever understand. Raila Odinga was advised by his US & United Kingdom supporters to shelf challenging Uhuru Kenyatta. He was even asked to go & lecture those creepy criminals in both Offord & Cambridge universities and was promised a deal>>

                          And since Raila Odinga is just another power hungry desperado, he is being a running between shuttler between the government of South Sudan & their Riek Machar puppet by his foreign masters from the US & the UK. Since Raila Odinga & Riek Amachar & bunch of our other fools like Pagan Amuom, Lam Akol, Rebecca Nyandeng, Majak Agoot are seen as bunch of power hungry at all costs buffoons>>>

                            Some South Sudanese idiots do not know the reasons as to why the greatest charlatan of all times, Mr. Barack Obama & his then bunch of evil juus in his then US states department use to call our country their "US national security interest"? The charlatan thought our country must be like the US over protectorate and our people must be the US over sea’s subjects>>>

                              And that was why a traitor & a thieve like Pagan Amuom took a ’permanent residency’ of the then Barack Obama’s white house. Because the criminal thought his Barack Obama would come & enthroned him into power in our country. Now that things are not as they were to be. And a loser, a thieve & traitor like Pagan Amuom & his co-conspirators are stuck in foreign countries like Kenya, Adis Ababa>>>

They have outsourced their come to our country to their foreign masters from the US, the UK, their UN, their sleazy NGOs, their evil juus>>>

Who says that people who committed high treason & grand theft have ever allow to get away scot free? Who really says? Probably here in South Sudan. Since the traitors like Riek Machar, Lam Akol & Adwok Nyabe were allowed back after their 1991 high treason against the SPLM/A>>>
