Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) Splinter Factions

Name: Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) Splinter Faction

Areas of operation: Darfur and South Kordofan, Sudan.

Background: The main faction of the Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) signed a peace deal with Khartoum in 2011 with its leader El Tijani El Sisis became the Chairman of the Darfur Regional Authority (DRA).

On 13 April, a splinter faction of the Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) signed a merger pact with the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM). The deal was inked by Ahmed Hussein Adam, JEM’s foreign relations secretary and Sayed Charif Jarel Nabi, acting leader of the LJM breakaway group.

The LJM splinter faction is not part of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) a coalition between JEM; the Abdul Wahed and Minni Minnawi factions of the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army (SLM/SLA); and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army - Northern Sector (SPLM-N/SPLA-N).

The LJM splinter factions and SLM Unity - another smaller Darfur rebel group who also signed the merger pact with JEM on 13 April - are coordinating with JEM despite not being in the SRF.

In April 2012 JEM said that two groups had participated in their attack on the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) in two positions in Kharsana near Heglig, South Kordofan. SAF denied the attack took place.
