October 16, 2018 (JUBA) - The National Salvation Front (NAS) led by Gen Thomas Cirilo Swaka Tuesday dismissed accusations of attacking the SPLA-IO positions in Yei River State saying its fighters acted in self-defence.

In a statement issued Monday SPLM-IO Deputy Spokesperson Lam Paul Gabriel said NAS fighters killed 17 civilians in two attacks on their positions in Minyori and Logo of Yei River State.

However, NAS Spokesperson Suba Samuel Manase said his group which rejected the revitalized peace agreement is fully committed to the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement of 21 December 2017.

"On I4th October 2018, SPLM-IO under the command of Col Gadi attacked NAS small patrolling contingency force in Minyori Boma of Yei County," Manase said in a statement released on Tuesday.

"As a result, NAS force responded in self-defence and pursued the SPLA-IO bandits into their operational base in disarray," he stressed.

The African Union Peace and Security Council on Monday issued a statement about the outcome of a meeting held on 10 October about the situation in South Sudan.

The Council called on the parties to not resort to violence.

The Council ’’Appeals to all the parties to the conflict to cease all acts of violence in South Sudan and respect for the signed Revitalized Agreement and to remain committed to the peaceful resolution of the conflict".

    I have been telling S Sudanese to think critically instead of pointing hands to tribe. They will finish up through supporting greedy leaders. Now Equatoria killing each other thinking that they are Riek and Thomas fighters. Please stop listen to foreigners and listen to each other as South Sudanese in sack of peace in your nation.

      NAS must join the peace agreement and abandoned the rebellion because we, the South Sudanese need peace and reconciliation.

          Eastern,

          Dinka Defender is right, NAS needs to understand that peace is more important than anything in South Sudan. Angola , Mozambique, Uganda, DRC and more have experienced rebellions, but the governments of these countries are still ruling. Local people paid very heavy prices. It’s useless to take your small community to war unprepared. It will cause harm to your immediate relatives.

                South South,

                Some loose IO bandits attacked NAS positions first.Thereafter,NAS brilliant forces bravely defended themselves.I really advise our Equatorian brothers who are aimlessly fighting for the IO to abandon their positions and instate join an Equatorian driven movement.This is the only genuine future foundation for South Sudan.Make no mistake,NAS will swipe and punish hard those who play...

                    Equatorians fighting Equatorians is good for Equatoria people? It’s your choice, go for it.

                      If Riak and his IO have renounced federalism, then Equatorians in IO are nothing other than hirelings and nyagateen errand boys who must be treated as bastardized Equatorians and therefore legitimate targets. NAS must gear up and radicalize the fight. All non Equatorian SSOA members don’t want federalism cuz they want to squat in Juba.

                Keep your junk jienge sentimentality to yourself. NAS must ensure all Equatorians in IO decamp and join NAS. We want clear fault and frontlines. All jienge miscreants are out of Yei River State. Secondly, war must go to Madi-Acholi axis and all cowardly Bor jienges expelled by force. Thirdly, we bring fire and burn Juba.👊

                  With due respect, keep your shit NAS with you somewhere and do anything you want to do with it, but if you come near South Sudan with it,you will be crushed. Thomas Cirillo is a thief, no more.

                    Bullshit. Again praise God that Equatoria has made you jienge and nyagat miscreants human. Look at your God-forsaken junk states where you live like savages. Once we burn Juba, you could as well hand yourselves or return to your jellaba masters. NAS bring the war to Juba. Prepare for your exit.

                Tell your cowardly Bor jienges that "your peace" has come and they must vacate Madi-Acholi lands. They have no fucking business still squatting in Equatoria. Yei has been cleared of jienge miscreants. Next Nimule and Acholi lands. Finally, Juba. Juba must burn and we want to see where jienges, nyagateen will run 🏃 to next. 👊

              This war has significantly restricted the spread of these pervasive jienge, nyagateen miscreants. Without war, they’d be everywhere. War in Equatoria must be intensified so that these worthless scumbags return to their luaks. For this, Juba must burn. All of them just want to come and squatt in Juba. This is encouraging laziness. They must build their areas

          Eastern, both "the language and tone." What do you want? It is up to you NAS party to choose which road to takes. Remember summer is coming and we are coming as well so be prepared to face... commander likes Martin Abusha from Arizona, U.S. joined NAS to fight the government forces. We, also know other refugees from the U.S. who joined the party. They are destroying themselves and families.

            Equatoria sustained the SPLA for 21 yrs, providing logistics, food supplies and transit for military hardware enroute to jiengelands. This time NO. You want war, we go for it. The bushes are not only for jienges or nyagateen. They are our bushes and we control them. We are not scared of jienges as long as they don’t manufacture guns. We all buy from the free market

      The strategy is simple. Equatoria must burn and in the end, the heat will reach Juba. In this way, jienge miscreants and nyagateen hirelings have no areas to squat anymore. Travel in-and-out of Juba and on all Equatorian roads is NO GO for MTNs. Jienges and nyagateen can’t destroy their luaks and think Equatoria must babysit them. No. They must busted out.👊

          Thank you very much. Only when we burst the source of this jienge scourge, little will change. Cuz we stupidity behaved as civilized and hosted all these filthy miscreants, now we’re paying a heavy price. This time no stopping the war.NAS must gear up and jienges must be hunted down like rats. Yei is clean now. Next Nimule then Juba. They can take the capital city to Bor or Gogrial. 👊

      Bullshit and just stupid. When our women, girls are raped, old men killed, houses torched then you must be a real shithole. You seem to suggest what is happening in Equatoria is traditional jienge dance in a cattle camp. Again, I don’t give a shit to your assertion. War must be intensified till all non Equatorians quit to their luaks.
