BREAKING NEWS: North Sudan army carries out air attacks in Unity state, South Sudan says


June 9, 2011 (JUBA) – The north Sudan army today carried out intensive air attacks in South Sudan’s Unity state, a state minister has told Sudan Tribune.

The attacks, which occurred from 7-8AM in the morning, were reported by the minister of information in Unity state, Gideon Gatpan Thoar.

Thoar told Sudan Tribune on Thursday that two Antonov airplanes belonging to the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF), north Sudan army, carried out the dawn attacks in a place called Jau in Pariang County of the state near the North-South borders.

Thoar further said that SAF’s Antinov airplanes, which he said were targeting the positions of division nine of the South Sudan army, the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA), instead hit the settlements of civilian populations in the area. The number of casualties was not immediately confirmed.

    Salva Kiir should go to Khartoum and talk tough with his president Omer al Bashir instead of talking about divisions in South Sudan leadership while Abyei and South Sudan are under attack. The poor people of Pariang, another Dinka Ngok county, is under air attacks by SAF in Unity state.

        Mr. Dor
        Do you want president Kiir to response to the brutal attack of Bashir? you are absolutely wrong, no war before independent we better die and wait for independent when we become a nation then that would be international issue and mr.Bashir will be in hell when that time comes.it is his interest (Bashir)to interrupt our independent but he is totally wrong and SPLA will never accept.we will get nothing if SPLA response because people will still go into total confusion and there will be no more South Sudan. So I personally disagree with anyone who supported war. when are we going to have freedom? this is the chance God has given us and if we misuse it we are gone and next generation will also suffer in our footstep.

          Dani....you talk of "we wait until independent of south sudan, that is when the president Kiir shall response to brutal attack of Bashir" now the question come, what of if the people whom the independent belonging to got finish by the brutal attack? who will response with Kiir?

          dear comrades, let’s always think before we leap, without fear or favor i vote for president Kiir going to Khartoum till the 8th, July, 2011 when he will only come to Juba to lower the Sudan flag down as VP Machar rise the south Sudan flag. the more Kiir sit in Juba the more Arab shall finish us beffore the so called independent. otherwise its better to have life than independent.

      Yes! Dear trusteller, I agree with you that those of Ngok Dinka in Ruweng county are poor, I dont know what did you meant by that? I wrote the article similar to what is just happened in pan-rieng or Jau kol de koch in the splmdiaspora and in the rest of the sudanese news headlines, saying, what is happing now in Abyei will spread to the borders area like pan-rieng now. So, for you to treat it as your problem, dont call Ruweng people/them poor, they never been poor and will never be poor! They always feed their friends or those whom ever bordering them. This war is not about Ngok or Malual in the west, its all about us all, even you in the far east. Thanks.

      Kiir and his Government should keep uphold till Date July 9

      These are the last kicks of the going horse and all should be counted till date July 9. Arabs are not happy of the breaking away of the South Sudan peaceful, rich and newly nation.

      Sorry to the people of Unity State! The Arabs in the North are jealous of the strong back-bone support from the strong governance of Unity State to the Referendum exercise. Unity State has been holding a strong position of implementing the CPA agreed policies.

      Kiir and his government should not react with the same behaviours by the North Sudan but they have to work harder to protect the South Sudan’s citizens within these remaining 30-days

    Dear Southers pls. stop telling lies, for sure (SAR) didn’t attack you, if you want to cover SPLA attack on South Kordfan State u better invent a convincing story. Shame on you ungrateful brothers, when there was no oil we shared everything with u and now u bite our hand and stab us on the back. Your plan is obvious and clear u are tyring to bring American and European Forces to occupy our land, but when they come that time u will realize the real meaning of occuption, torture, mistreament and racism. Just look around yourslef and see the situation in Iraq, Afganistan and Somalia. Remember one thing we are not your enemy we are your brothers, let us exchange love not hatered.

    Poor Government of South Sudan and SPLA! Until now there is no a single air defense battery held by SPLA. It is heartbreaking when we see ourselves being bombed again without doing anything to enemy bombers after six years of relative calm in which we were supposed to have prepared for all eventualities.
    All those big businesses in South Sudan and especially in Juba must donate millions of dollars to buy air defense batteries now.
    We are at war and no one should under estimate this anymore.

      This is not a surprise, north want to provoke south into war knowing that July 9th is approaching. It will be up to international community to figure out if they want the north to continue provoking Southerners into war and that is what they are up to now.

      Those who were fooling themselves that Abyei attack was provoke by Southerners are yet to be waken by fresh attacks these northern losers ate planning day and night. Some would wonder why SPLA is not fighting back, yes that is what the north want so that south Sudan does not enjoy their independence. You will not see them doing the same provocative attacks on Southerners after July 9th for they know what the consequences will be for them.

    Northern Sudan government should respect the rulse of CPA. If you continue convicting Human Right abused, do you thinks, what you are doing will give your expectation from this land? If not please don’t caused the tears you will moaning in the future.
    Jesus Christ will not allow people of Southern Sudan back in tears again, as becasue you NCP OR SAF.
    We are going to celberate July9,2011 including the whole Suthern Sudan,as Abyei, South Blue Nile, South Kordofan and the whole Nuba Moutians.

    When the North-South border was closed for economic activites it clearly signalled war was about to errupt. Juba should be prepared for eventuality. Jallaba are still for war. Jallaba needs to be struck from west, east and South. They might have got assurance from egypt to encourage them to carry these dirty military schemes of theirs. Egypt might have a hand on it.

    Yes friends, I have read all your comments this morning though some are for last evening.
    Your ability to brainstorm here is very viatal and appreciated because it gives those educated who understands what is going on, a picture or map of what will happen soon or later.
    I don’t just like the way our media reports things which makes people to ask questions of the validity and facts of the article, events should eb reported in time and should be fresh and measurable.
    In the lue of what was reported in Unity State, I condemed it if it is true but I don’t support the call for reterliation whatsover, and I don’t rely on Americans or International Com’ty for intervention but rather suggest that just like other coleagues suggested, we have to keep calm at this time but ofcourse build up defence at the boadre to protect civilians from fear for attacks by the hungry but week Jallabas.
    Don’t criticize Kirr like that, though your personally know he is a week manager, time will come when he will be redeployed to defence ministry or man of atomic energy. No tribe for S. Sudan but Southerners for south Sudan.

    It’s disgusting to hear the retrectic of some members of this site mainly instead of exchanging views and inputs we have come to amount in ridiculous debate about our administrations and tribalism based on concocted rumors,ideas while misstating the news this was a an attack on unity state period not the rift between our government or society in large let’s concentrate on the ongoing problems in sudan differentiating between cliques and associate but concentrating on the violations of the saf lead government of ncp from here to July anything by then shouldn’t Be counterproductive to the unity of south Sudanese
