February 7, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s rebel group National Salvation Front (NAS) led by Thomas Cirilo Thursday said they repelled fresh attacks by the South Sudan People’s Defence Forces (SSPDF) near the Southwestern border with Congo.

UN reports say the security situation in South Sudan has improved in the country since the signing of the revitalized peace agreement on 12 September 2019. However international body points out that the Equatoria province remains the exception, due to the continued clashes between the government forces and NAS which rejects the deal.

NAS Spokesperson Suba Manase once again accused the government army of violating the cessation of hostilities agreement and attacking their positions in a far remote area of Senema near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo on Monday 4 February.

"NAS gallant forces inflicted heavy causalities to the Mathiang Anyoor Militia leaving them retreating to Kojiko," Manase added without providing more details.

He further accused the SSPDF of "intensifying its campaign of terror against civilians in the villages around Yei and Morobo".

In a related development, the rebel official claimed that SPLA-IO forces attacked their position in Kajo-Keji, in Yei River State, adding they anticipated the offensive and withdrew their fighters from the area before to ambush the assailants later on.

Last Monday SPLA-IO deputy spokesperson Lam Paul Gabriel dismissed NAS previous statement about an attack carried by the SPLA-IO on their position in Kajo Keji saying they want to give an impression of having a presence in the area.

In a press statement released on 2 February NAS’s "spokesperson accused the SPLA IO of attacking their position in Kajo keji, this is completely false and an attempt to show presence in the area," said Gabriel.

"NAS TC does not have forces in Kajo keji," he stressed.

Last Monday, the Chairman of CTSAMVM Desta Abiche Ageno voiced concern about the continued clashes in Yei River State and called on the IGAD Special Envoy to South Sudan to bring the holdout opposition groups to join the peace process.

      Paul Lam Gabriel should clean his criminal past as teak-timber smuggler. This half Nyagat-Acholi should think of his origins and leave us Equatorians alone to fight it out. For fellow Equatorians in IO, they should review their loyalty after IO has given up federalism. Equatorian IO should join NAS for federalism. Case closed.

      The jienge regime can’t afford to open several fronts simultaneously. First, pacify IO then concentrate on NAS. Equatorians in IO must be watchful, then nyagats and all other squatters fear federalism cuz their states are just shitholes. But Equatoria can’t accommodate all SS. Why then have 32 states? Equatoria is full of non Equatorians. We must rollback this savagery.

Don’t you see that our country it’s moving forward and our people are celebrating peace everyday without your "NAS." how many time do I have to tell you rebels that you’re just a lockout inmates and piece of trash that is in some of Equatoria Villages making noises. Don’t make us pay attention on you,because if do, than we will finish you in one day

      Jubaone,Eastern,

      The chilling truth is,jienges and nyagats are teaming up, crawling into Equatoria to suppress and occupy Equatorians/Equatoria.We’ll never let that happen EVER!We recently witnessed Kiir converging with Bari Elders initiating tones to convince Thomas C. to come join the fake peace,..fuck that shit!Kiir is not for peace and neither are many of those IO timber dealers and thugs....

        ..From now on Equatorians supporting IG jienges or IO nyagats need to seriously start focusing and rethink.They must see the looming dangers and ill plans these intruders are scheming or waging in Equatoria. Oppressors or occupiers have no place in Equatoria. Equatoria is for Equatorians!We’ll fight for our ancestral lands by any means necessary!

    Only when Equatoria moves on, can SS move on. Other SS really don’t matter at all. Jiengelands have been having peace since 2005, yet they can’t move even an inch. Jienges have turned SS into a real shithole 💩 and SS is the poorest country on earth with the worst development indicators. Jienges are the problem. Had we monkeys 🐵 instead, perhaps we could have made money through circuse

      at least jienglands is in peace and people there are having a goodnight sleep since we left Arab. Everyone who know South Sudanese people knew you don’t like jienge like Arab don’t like South Sudanese people, Arab likes you, because they brand watches many of you, that’s why they have a song call fe madyna juba. But now many Equatorians are happy because they have their own country call SS

        and they want to move it foreword, but people like you get so use to Arab that’s why your fighting for something you don’t even know how to explant it or know what kind of what you’re calling for to the public. Question is, why you did tell Al Bashir that you want federalism when jienge were not around?

              You gay rebels aren’t fighting for federal state," you are fighting jienge and Nyagot. You see now. Al Bashir is in deep shit right now because Sudanese people are becoming 1 one people, that’s why you see Al Bashir now is running from state to state, from country to country, county to county. Being as one people is very important. Ya Klahap into

              Jienges are the gays!They walk, dance,eat, sleep and shit naked!We Equatorians love and adore our women.They are beautiful,magnificient,well sustained and are very proud.There is no reason an Equatorian would ever be a gay man, why,..b’cos there is plenty of our wonderful women.Now for jienges,this is totally different.Since birth, you jienges never knew who your real fathers are,....

                    I don’t want to call you stupid, because you’re already unsmarts. "anyways." Whatever you said it doesn’t make any senses, if you want to believe me, just go back and read what you have wrote, you will find yourself as a nonsense rebel who is fighting in the internet without any benefit. What you have said it doesn’t have any meaning, but I forgive you because you don’t no the>>

                      meaning of part of life. Yes we jienge are part of what you have said, but we didn’t declare gay law like other country who are the best, smart, strong, and many more. We the people of South Sudan, we don’t like gay people, and that’s why we don’t like you. You, jubaone, Eastern, and your gay leader Thames, don’t like jienge, but I tell you what, we don’t like you too, but not all Equatorians.

    Reports indicate that UPDF mercenaries and hirelings have come in large numbers after having been paid by the Kiirminal. Weak, emaciated, poor logistics the SSDinka sent SoS to M7 for help. The Ugandan hirelings are selling their services to anyone for money or perhaps a license to go loot resources like how they did in DRC.
