November 15, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan army and the main opposition group, SPLM-IO, Thursday decided to cancel joint military operations in Yei river State against the holdout National Salvation Front (NAS) led by Thomas Cirilo Sawaka (NAS-S).

In a meeting held within the framework of the confidence-building measures between the local military commanders of the two peace partners in Kajo-Keji on 12 November, they decided to deploy joint forces to repel any attack by NAS-S and to clear several areas of rebel presence.

However, in a follow-up meeting held on 15 November, the South Sudan People’s Defence Forces (SSPDF) and the SPLA-IO reversed their decision and decided to give a chance for the ceasefire implementation body (CTSAMM) to convince them to stop hostilities.

"The SSPDF and SPLA-IO overruled the resolution of the meeting held in Kajo Keji on 12/11/2018 in regards to the joint operations against negative forces that may come in the area," said SPLA-IO Military Spokesperson Lam Paul Gabriel in a statement released after the meeting.

"The teams agreed to let CTSAMM talk to any other force in Yei River State and any other places in South Sudan to embrace peace so that civilians move and live freely in peace and harmony," he further added.

NAS is not a signatory to the revitalized peace agreement but says committed to the cessation of hostilities agreement of 21 December 2017 which they signed with the other warring parties.

Lam said they agreed that CTSAMM team would conduct workshops to the field commanders of both forces and local authorities on the security arrangements of South Sudan revitalized peace agreement.

These workshops will "equip them with knowledge of the security arrangements".

Also, the SPLA-Io will establish a military liaison office in the SSPDF bases in Kaya, Morobo and Yei to help coordinate information and activities of the two forces.

    I totally agree with SSDF and SPLA-IO for their reversing such plan, anything that we do affect innocent civil population in that area. So, let both forces give peace a chance. It doesn’t matter if those of NAS signed the peace or not, cease-fire belong to civilians. Again, I thank the army leadership for taking such positive thoughts.

      It was good that they came back to their senses before stepping on the thorn. The War against NAS/PDM is tha War against the right minded people of South Sudan. And definitely the war by SSDF/SPLA-IO to NAS/PDM in Equatorian Soil means the war against Equatoria. You will then know what Equatorian are capable of. That traitor call Gabriel will know. His Teaks Business will stop.

        This is a very good move from our government and IO. Let’s give NAS time to think before it’s too late. Cirillo has no soldiers in Equatoria. He has a few people in US and Canada. These crazy a few people in north America are pushing him deep into ocean while he doesn’t know to swim. You can’t into river Nile unless you know to swim.

          Correction: I mean you can’t jump into Nile Rivet unless you know to swim. Talking in Slcial media is one thing and fighting the real war on the ground in South Sudan is another thing. Not everyone in South Sudan can fight. We have good numbers of people who talk about war, but when war they run away, examples are jubaone, Eastern, The Rhino, LNdlord and struggle Joseph Canada.

SPLA has realised it’s futile decision about attacking the holdout group. Once such attacks start, the civil populace would bear the brunt of the miscalculation of SPLA.

                  You were not in Khatiba Shakoush and neither in Kapwata between 1994-1997 and so don’t know anything about Gen Cirillo, the only highly decorated military professional with training from Sandhurst. Don’t compare him with your bush generals. Even with few forces, cowardly Jienges are panicking. Wow!

I think I should take over NAS and clean it up from low grade shitholes whose services are simply carry ammunitions for us.

Kindly remind yourselves to go and start peace in your areas and once we see that working, we shall convince Gen Cirillo to do likewise.

    Let NAS also reciprocate it by respecting the signed peace and cease-fire. We abhore the killing in the country for no reason at all. Those who are hysterical with killing nowadays were cowardly hiding with Jalaba in cities during the liberation struggle including this miserable figure called Cirilo and his brother Peter Cirilo.

      Can the SSDF (jienge outfit) and the SPLA-IO (more nyagateen than Equatorians) afford to fight in for long without drawing an all-out-war on Equatorians? What we need is to let this war start, so that it becomes clear to all Equatorians that the ganging-up of jienges and nyagateen is hell-bent on destruction of Equatoria. We have genuine reasons to declare that "these retarded forces".

Equatorians in SSDF and IO cant standby while these agents of destruction pillage and dishonor our lands. This means we´ll NEVER distinguish between a jienge and nyagat.

    If they could not get annoyed and fight Arab sodomy and oppression then In Juba, how come now they have suddenly become men who want to fight their own brothers who brought them freedom and liberty? Anyway I’m afraid if they don’t reciprocate the cease-fire and respect peace, they have to be fought by the combined forces of SSPDF and SPLA-IO.

      How do you explain the large number of jellaba and darfuri bastards in Warewar, Gok Machar and other adjacent areas in northern Bahr el Ghasal? War was intense in Equatoria for real strategic reasons. Once you control Equatoria, you control SS. Jiengelands are economically, politically and strategically useless and irrelevant. That´s why jellaba concentrated in Juba.

    Equatoria is not one tribe but a conglomeration of many different unrelated tribes with very dangerous hatred against each other.

    "Cancelled attack" that’s what I call a patriotic decision as it’s said "The best general is not one who have won the battle but one who have avoided war."

    The best way to help you regain peace with one who disagreed with you is not to increase hostility but sustained negotiation based on truth.
