Sudan army attacks SPLA forces and governor’s residence in Blue Nile: SPLM-N


September 2, 2011 (KHARTOUM) – Forces of the Sudanese government on Friday attacked the residence of the Blue Nile state governor, who is also chairman of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N), Malik Agar.

According to Yasir Arman, SPLM-N’s secretary-general, Sudan’s army (SAF) launched a military offensive at midnight Friday targeting the SPLM’s Joint Integrated Units under the command of Jondi Suliyman and the house of Agar in the state capital Al-Damazin.

Arman told Sudan Tribune that in the past four days the Sudanese government had deployed reinforcements consisting of one infantry brigade, 12 tanks and 40 armed vehicles into the area.

“This debunks the deceptive ceasefire announced by Al-Bashir in South Kordofan because it was declared in order to prepare for an attack against Al-Damazin,” Arman said.

He further warned that the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) would be held accountable for attacking the house of “the elected governor” and the “atrocities they are committing against the civilian population” as well as the SPLM-N’s membership in the two areas.

“We wish to assure SPLM-N’s supporters and members of the general public that Malik Aggar is safe,” Arman said, promising to give more details on the events taking place in the Blue Nile within the next few days.

Arman did not explain what triggered the fighting and there was no confirmation of the attacks from independent sources.

In a phone interview with Bloomberg, Agar said the attack happened after three vehicles used by the SPLA were shot at by Sudanese soldiers while approaching the southern part of Al-Damazin.

“When our forces shot back at them, they just heavily bombarded my house and all sites of the SPLA in the capital,” Agar said.

Sudan official news agency (SUNA) carried statements by SAF saying it has been attacked by the SPLA.

Al-Sawarmi Khaled told SUNA that the SPLA started the attack. He further said they have long expected this move because Agar was mobilising his troops during the past period. He further said the this attack aims to alleviate pressure on SPLA troops under the command of Abdel-Aziz al-Hilu in South Kordofan.

Agar also spoke to SUNA about "skirmishes" between the commander of the joint integrated units and the Sudanese army at the gates of Al-Damazin.

He further confirmed that the fighting is taking place now in all the state between the two forces.

The eruption of war in Blue Nile with heavily armed SPLA units could put the entire Sudan at risk of a full scale war. The government in Khartoum has been engaged in clashes with SPLA forces in South Kordofan since last June.

SPLM-N has blamed the government for fighting in South Kordofan saying that Sudan’s army was seeking to disarm its fighters by force.

Last May, SAF sent a letter to SPLA saying that its forces in the two states must disarm by June 1st or deploy to what is now the new country of South Sudan.

But the SPLA responded by saying that the units are composed of northern soldiers, therefore withdrawing South is not an option.

The Blue Nile’s governor told the New York Times (NYT) at the time that SAF has moved “dangerously close” to the bases of SPLA fighters and that he did not think the southern-allied forces would surrender.

“It’s like putting a cat in a corner,” Agar said. “They will fight.”

        He was elected governer and he has the full right to rule.As a citizent he should abide by the constitution which stipulates that there is only one army in the country.CPA was signed with only one SPLA , there was nothing called SPLA-N in the CPA. Any civilian should disarm to civillians and armed person will be faced by the national army.

        In our country , we are used to the rule of law and everybody should abide by the constitution.We donnot want people killing each other in mass scale.Foreigners are qualified to tell us how to run our internal affairs!Anyone who messes with our internal affairs should expect the same!

        Agar is the governer , he should be the first to abide by the constitution and law.

        Arman should know that SAF has the unqustionable right to move in any part of our country without asking permission from anyone.

          I think Khartoum’s Government has lost the legitimate power to rule our people, I tell you we in Nuba will not have any compromise with such behaviors. How come this Government announce a ceasefire and again broke it promise? My advice to our people to stay united and never listen to SAF anymore, we are tire of this evil army act(Bashir).

          Therefore, there is no constitution that guide our people as you mentioned.why don’t you shut up your mouth and quite this forum. we know very well that, Khartoum has no proper approach to solve a chronic conflict in Sudan and this problem still continue. so why don’t you come up with solution to our conflict.

            It is simple, abide by the result of the elections and accept the result.Play with the rules of the law and disarm your militia.

            There should be one army , the war in S.Kordofan was started by the SPLA against the national army. Al Hilue cannot go to election and when he looses it, he has to started a war. This is not acceptable.

            Agar is the governer accepted, as stipulated by the constitution.He wants to be a militia leader at the same time. He cannot be selective, either you abide by the constitution and remain the governer or drop the constitution and become a militia leader!

              SAF and NCP are forging the War that it end is removal of Corrupted Government. Shame on them NCP and SAF.

              ICC List is extended for launching the war in Southern Kordufan, Blue Nile and Red Sea States. How many War Crimes Counts needed to hangs Bashir, Defense, And Foreign Ministers now, Ocampo should step effort and urge the Security Council to Justify War on Sudan Now as it lost Legitimacy by Killing innocense Civillians.

              Please Take Bashir together with Gadhafi and hang them..........

              I like French action on Libya and must be applied to Khartuom as such. Stop shedding Blood and remove NCP from Power in Khartuom

          the whole issue why there are all these wars in S.kordufan, Blue Nile, Darfur,and Eastern Sudan, is the IDENTITY ISSUE. How can these pure Africans be forced to accept being arabs? Yes,some of them are Mulsims but they are genetically and aboriginally AFRICANS.Why force someone to be what he’s not?
          these regions should be appreciated for accepting Islam as their religion of Worship but they should be respected as Africans by keeping their Native Nubian culture / African cultures and Languages.to solve this problem, the country must accept to be a secular state,religion separate from the state/politics.second, theses people of AFRICAN ORIGIN should be given RIGHT TO SELF-DETERMINATION to decide their own fate, to live as Arab Slaves or free citizens in their own country, just the same formula used by south sudanese.this is the reallity that should be accepted. and by default, the Fugitive AL BASHIR, is NEXT on the list of NATO, after THE WORLD’S GREATESTS DICTATOR, MUAMMAR GADHAFI OF LIBYA.SO stay tuned!

            Identity is a fiction. In Islam there is nothing called identity which gives you prevelige above others. Even Islam does not give you any advantage above any other non-muslim; in heaven it is up to God and not up to us .

            So identity, tribe, race, colour is all nonesense.The idea of " purity" does not guarantee anything, as there are Africans worst than the devil.

            Identity is an imported virus which they are treated in their counties after devastated wars and they spread it among us to continue their hegemoney!

              There is no something wrong with words, "Identity and History" of origin when you don’t take as political ideal.
              Blue Nile citizens are still being treated like second citizen in their own land like when did happen to South Sudanese in which it just ended in July 9, 2011.

            You are absolutely right when you says, "IDENTITY ISSUE". Yes, the North Sudan wants to deny them their history and identity of them being from Africa origin. And they should have right to join South Sudan.

          Your talk is what is causing problems to the government of Libya and as well as in in Egypt last time.

          It’s human right that determines not SAF. There is no way that SAF can do what it likes to the citizens. Sudan belongs Sudanese but to SAF.

          Let Beshir together with SAF and his allies keep in mind that "what goes round comes round."

          We have been singing of this but now you will see the fire rising in the whole Sudan, Bashir was not wise enough to point a finger to those regions, I can see the bright future for the new Sudan is a few kilometres coming. Bashir army have few weeks to run away from Sudan otherwise they will be captured like those from Lybia, I believe Bashir is not stronger than Kahdafi who every one knows on this globe. who ever atempted to point Agar a finger will face the consequence and now happened, I request Dr. Khalil, Al Hilu, Maliik Agar, Yasser Arman and others to join hands together and fight an enemy of peace to the last minutes, we hope for positive and successful revolution through God we will make a victory, take those crimals, evils away from our homeland(Sudan) the world is standing for you. Sudan will come to the line of democracy and remain the peaceful state forever after this victory.

          Freedom is coming tomorrow morning, I can see the freedom is coming, the total freedom, peace,love and unity!!!!

          We must fight to get that goal of freedom.

          The National Congress party/NIF should stop their scary tactics and face the reality. SPLA-N fighters got a right to maintain their weapons untill the CPA is fully implemented in both two states.

          Anything shorter than that, is a violation of agreement and SPLA-N have a right to resist any attempt by the oppressors. It is a time to put Sudan into the right shape.

          The dudes in Khartoum should know that we all have see the light. We are at your back brothers, we wouldn’t forget about you. One more to go!

Please open your freacking closed islamic terrorist minded and listen yourself. You think what you are saying is meaningful but it is not becasue your uncle bashir with his terrorist groups, SAF are the ones that times after times violating the CPA. Please dont even try to talk about law or constitution becasue you dont have one in the first place. What you are describing as a constitution that you have in Sudan(North) is piece of rubbish document written by your hallucinating islamic extremist leaders/lawyers in Khartoum and claim as a law/constitution of the land.

          Mohamed Ali you talk like someone is not living in 21th century; I’m going back to history when your masters conquered Sudan in 15th century. Yes it is known in the history that you don’t abide by the agreements, we knew this should be the beginning of mother of all wars as Cmr. Abdolla Alaziz said during his famous interview with the Al jezeera reporter in the Nuba mountain in June. Marginalizes will lead to achieve what political forces in North unable to achieve for the last 20 years which is removal of this genocidal government, the only agreement down in history you respected was (AL-baqt) agreement between Arab invaders and the three Sudanese Kingdoms at the time, Al muqgura, Al pony, and the Napata kingdom, was not even an agreement, it was a surrender in term of agreement in which all of AL kingdoms has to offer their 360 strong men( Holts 17) annually to Arab invaders as slaves, in addition to amount of slivers, ivory and Gold to Arab invaders in order to stay in the mercy of their invaders, this was the only agreement we knew in history that you have respected so far. So if you think marginalize people will repeat the history this time by surrender their weapons after fighting 22 years for their freedom then you most be living in the shadows of stone age and that meant you can start looking now for routes when you first entered to Sudan so you can follow the same routes back to where you came from.

          The Abyei issue is simple, it’s not solves now because South Sudan has a lot to deal with at the moment, it’ll not take a day to take it by force.

          Mohammad Ali, you and your NCP don’t have any power, you haven’t had any control ever since Darfur, South Kordufan and Blue Nile started their rebellion.

          How can you claimed to have control of Abyei when you don’t have any control over the regions I just mention? Look, you’re just like a rabbit using it ears to scare the other animals with the real horn?

It was a just a tactics to declare cease fire so that the can disarm the SPLA in Blue but every one was aware about the deal. So they could not managed and the plan fall

      These Arabs in sudan they need to be given a fight in these way
      SPLA in Blue Nile to clear eastern sudan
      SPLA in South Kordfan to clear Nubian Mountain toward Khartoum
      All Darfur Faction to fight and capture the entire region of western Sudan

    The Sudanese regime is playing with fire and it will get burned. Attacking an elected governor is nothing short of a declaration or war and violation of the ceasefire that they just announced. This will not be an easy fight like one in Darfur. We in the South are not going to stand by while our brothers and allies are slaughtered.

    The post NIF era will start with:

    1. Power sharing between SPLM-Malik Agar and SLM Abdelwahid Mohamed Nur.

    2.The collapse of North Sudan Institution, economic and the social system in case the NIF are going to resist the Uprising

    3. The Somalisation of North Sudan is not far away.

    To the people of blue Nile, Korodufan, Darfur, and eastern Sudan,

    Umar hasen min Bashir came to power by coup in 1989 and it is very rare if not impossible for those who come to power by coup to deliver freedom.
    All you need to do is take up arms in spirit of unity and determination to disgrace him, after removing him from power, you can even create your own countries.
    The earlier you do that, the better!

    the whole issue why there are all these wars in S.kordufan, Blue Nile, Darfur,and Eastern Sudan, is the IDENTITY ISSUE. How can these pure Africans be forced to accept being arabs? Yes,some of them are Mulsims but they are genetically and aboriginally AFRICANS.Why force someone to be what he’s not?
    these regions should be appreciated for accepting Islam as their religion of Worship but they should be respected as Africans by keeping their Native Nubian culture / African cultures and Languages.to solve this problem, the country must accept to be a secular state,religion separate from the state/politics.second, theses people of AFRICAN ORIGIN should be given RIGHT TO SELF-DETERMINATION to decide their own fate, to live as Arab Slaves or free citizens in their own country, just the same formula used by south sudanese.this is the reallity that should be accepted. and by default, the Fugitive AL BASHIR, is NEXT on the list of NATO, after THE WORLD’S GREATESTS DICTATOR, MUAMMAR GADHAFI OF LIBYA.SO stay tuned!

    They are paying price of failed vision of Dr. John Garang who brainwashed them of his Sudan Unity. Those people sacrifice a lot in SPLA and now left alone in war zone. We should help them or join them to south but we can not just leave them fighting jalaba alone.

    How ironic it is for you to think that you can trust Omar el- Beshir and his men. He is a lion in sheep’s skin, he might smile to you and open is mouth to show his breath teeth. He just did it to make you feel good and calm, but little do you know what motives he has in his heart. It is said, you can not share a den with a lion or snake, or else you’ll turn into ferry. You people find it hard to listen or better yet see what is going. He is nothing else but snake that can scroll beside you and you’ll not notice it movement. The man just visited Southern Kordofan States few days ago and upon his return he orders for an assault on SPLM-N in El Damazin and on the elected governor of Blue Nile State, Malik Agar. People how dead are you in your brain? And how blind are you that you cannot see an enemy coming toward you ready to kill you. He came to calm you down but the motives of his visit are to cleanse you from your homes and sack your governor at the same time. He has no remorse or guilt for killing you while you’ve turn your back. They say if you want to kill your enemy faces him or her eye to eye. But yet el Beshir and his men will rather kill you while you are not seeing him coming. Please, let me make myself clear here and I know that you knew Beshir visited Southern Kordufan State on August 23. So this tells me that he came face to face with his enemy and yet they did not see his motive for coming there at all. Why can you at least open your eyes a little bit and look inside the box of presents for what you were given. It might not be a present but just an empty box to make you feel an urge to stay and welcome your visitor. That’s what el Beshir did to the people of Blue Nile State few days after his visit in Southern Kordufan State; he brought you an empty box of present and inside it was a motive and you couldn’t see it. He came to access the situation first and to find out how weak you are so that he can prepare himself and get ride of you at the end. He just proves it to you by waging a war, although he claimed and called for a ceasefire for two weeks. He knew that you are so weak and helpless. This is an act and motive of the enemy who is willing.
    The below picture just shows how untrustworthy the man is, from the picture you can see and tell how he put those deceitful smile.

    My people the black African of Sudan it is time that you should wake up and unit yourself together and build an army that can march against the evil government of Omar el-Beshir. See how the people of Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya did it to their evil leaders. Unit I say and claim your land from the intruders who came 50 or 60 years ago and now they claim your land as their. They have seduces you with their fake religion, language, and names to make you feel accepted as one of them but now they have access to all of your possessions and they can’t leave. Do you know why, because you allowed them to deceit you with the religion, language, and names? Didn’t you know that they came ready to mesh up with your minds and to make you feel and think that they are good people but little did you know their intentions for coming? You even let them marry your daughters just for them to mix up with your blood so that they can raise kids in your likeness. This way you can not reject or tell them to go away. Off course, you know very well that a child born between two enemies bring peace and laughter’s. But little did you know why your enemy is laughing. He laughs because he already achieved his goal that is by blinding you to accept and let your daughters’ marriage them or their sons. Just for them to be able to raise kids through you and tomorrow they’ll have access to all of their lands. They promised themselves long time ago by saying, all those will one day be yours. And this people will not open their mouth against you because you have the right to the land just as they too have the right to it. You gave them a child of your blood, you taught them your religion and language, and you accepted to welcome them to be your equal after all you gave them you’re your names, although you know that you don’t meant it in your hearts. Ah! What an irony that it is my black African, you’ve allowed yourselves to be deceit. You allowed them to makes you feel and look like an idiot. Because you took everything for granted thinking that you are like and yet little did you knows that that was meant just to possessions your lands.

    The few colored in Sudan claimed that they are Arabs although they know very well that they are not. Tal ga wahit acuwet min rijilu le sar fi rac. Gisimu acuwet lakin hu bi kelim inu huwa arab. Al suwal hina: Inta arab min wen/fein? Inta allazahir sudani min rac le kura. Wahit bi kelim, la arab, asan an bikelim al lugga wa kaman an muslim. Ya allah! Yani din wa lugga bi wadi jol bi ger wa bikun arab. Bada miten? Lala anna insimi Ali, Mohamed, Idiris; wa hu bi ruwa kede wa kede. Inta min fein? Anna min samal? Fein fi samal? Umduraman, Khartoum, lala anna min el jezira. Wahid kabsu lahadi racu kaman ma bi fekir kuwec.

    Just don’t buy into the notion of the name, religion, and language because they cannot change you to become someone else. You’ll always remain a black African whether you like it or not because it is there in you blood. You are who you are, I don’t care where you say you held from north, east, south or west. The identity issue is just an illusion meant to deceit you into thinking that you belong among certain group of people who are oppressing their fellow countrymen/women. I write in English but I can not claim that I am English this will be fault. Losing one language and adapting a new one can not make you become the people whom you speaks their and the same goes to my black African of Sudan. Just look at Omar el Beshir and look at the soldier in front of him there is no different between him and the man or the rest of the soldiers. Just that you have a cruelly hair it doesn’t make you and Arab. El Beshir is not an Arab; his grandparent black African of Sudan who lost their language through islamization and arabization of the people in the north.

    This reminds me of living in Kenya in the 1990s. I met a lot of Somalia in Kenya who claimed that they are Arab just because they practiced Islam and their names are Muslim names. But few years ago some managed to come to the west and particularly those who came to America were dismayed to find that there are more colored people in America than them(Somalia. And the colored people here in America are even more bright compared to they (Somalian) of Somali. They Somalia have no choice but to accept the fact that they are black African from Somalia. This is how we human deceive ourselves and the identity crisis is not an issue in Sudan only, is a world wide issue and a phenomenon which needs to be get ride of by people who knows and reasons well. The Sudanese needs to stop lying to themselves and accept the fact that they are black African from Sudan; and although some of them have lost their language due to assimilation to few Arabs who came from Turky, Persian, and Arabia, it does not mean that they have to confirm to the Arabs issue of identity crisis. Little do they know that when they go to the Arabia, they are often looked upon as abid (slaves) nothing else.

    Mu advice to you, just don’t give in yet you have a lot of chances to claim your birthright back from your enemy. Unit my black African with all your hearts and fight the enemy and they will flee back where they come from and they’ll not look back again. They only threaten you with their mouth just to bring fear in your hearts. It is said, he who talks too much will not be heard, but he who speak only a few words his message will reach the hearts. And it is true you will indeed make your message be heard once you all come together from the south, east, north, center and west, united under one leader to face your enemy. You brother from the Beja, Fur, south, and you in the center can make a change and a lasting change for your children generations to come. You just can’t loose your home to your enemy to sleeps on your bed, while you sleep under the tree. Send them to go back to Turky, Persian, and Arabia that’s where they belong not in Sudan or Africa. They have lied to you about their religion, language, names, and friendship, but these were all based on lie and deceit.

    Long live the Beja
    Long live the Fur
    Long live the Nuba
    Long live south Sudan
    Long live Sudan our mothers land
