Ahmed Haroum made the pledge on Thursday during a visit to the remote area of Alatmor to inspect the Sudanese troops there after retaking it from the SPLM-N rebels, together with the disputed area of Jau and other positions earlier this week.

The governor who admitted that the SPLM-N remains active in three of the 19 districts of the state pledged Thursday to restore security and stability in the whole state and to clear the three areas of Haban, Um Dorain, and al-Buram where the rebels have some presence.

Haroun said the army captured recently six armored vehicles after the fight against the rebels in Abu Hshim, Alatamor Talodi, and Toroge. He want further to promise to liberate rebel stronghold of Kauda soon.

SPLM-N spokesperson Arno Lodi said today they repulsed assaults carried out by the Sudanese army in different areas. He added they inflected heavy losses on SAF troops in Abu Hashim, east of Kadugli and Daloka, located 10 km south to Kadugli.

The commander of 14th Infantry Division Maj. Gen. Bashir Maki Al-Bahi who toured the area with the governor pledged that by the end of December South Kordofan will be declared free of the insurgency completely.

General Bahi who lead the military operations in the troubled state said that the recent victories achieved by the army and are a strong motivation to move forward and impose government authority over every inch of the country.

He added that the rebels ran away and left behind a lot of documents that prove the involvement of the government of South Sudan and its support to the insurgency and attacks on parts of the state.

Sudanese and South Sudanese forces clashed this week for the first time since the independence of the latter last July. The fight took place after a series of accusation against each other of supporting the rebel groups in the two countries.

The bloody clashes also pointed the need to move faster in the demarcation of border between the two countries. Khartoum and Juba claim that Jau, on the border of Sudan’s South Kordfan with South Sudan’s Unity, is part of its territory.

      Prophet of Doom is the best-documented, most comprehensive, presentation of Islam’s five oldest and most reliable scriptural sources. Ishaq’s Biography of Muhammad, Tabari’s History of Islam, and Bukhari’s and Muslim’s Hadith, were used to reorder the Qur’an chronologically and to set its surahs into the context of Muhammad’s life.

        Contnue with realities about islamic evil

        conclusion is that Islam’s lone prophet was a ruthless terrorist, a mass-murderer, a thief, slave trader, rapist and pedophile.

      You Haroun are a fake diluted wana-be-Arab, you will never drive us from our land. You are not even from S. Kurdofan. SPLA-N is everywhere and we could never surrender to your imposition of fake Arabism.

      The Nuba & Funj were once the great rulers of this great land, and by the will of Allah this glory will return while you fight amongst yourselves for the titles of who’s more Arab.

      Bashir came to power in 89 and claimed that S. Sudan rebels would be crushed in a matter of months, 22 yrs later S. Sudan with all its problems have the pride of ruling themselves.

      African Sudanese of N. Sudan will be patiently waiting and fighting for the time when we no longer have imperialist fake Arabs telling us who we are or that only the tribes Al-Shimaliya can rule Sudan.

        Look stop these insulting and malevolent messages your sending out. 3000 yrs who have infested, manipulated and divided peoples from behind the scene. Your hatred of Arabs stems from the moment god established Islam as the true religion and your peoples doomed.
        Arabs are a majority in Sudan - We aint going ANYWHERE fool.

          Sam, your hatred for the Zionists have blinded you beyond redemption. There’re many good Jews who oppose what the Israeli government does to the Palestinians. do some research!

          Not once will you ever quote me as hating Muslims & Arabs but only speaking the truth against imperialists and oppressors regardless of their religion or ethnicity. Islam teaches that no man can be the master of another.

              I’ll leave you with one thought, Zionist didn’t exist 3,000 yrs ago but your claim of infestation could only be referring to Jews. Yet you claim of differentiating between them. lol.lol.lol

            I can quote you 100 times - ST keeps the records.
            From the Crusades to the ’exodus’ of "European Jews" - not direct descendents but converts - This war for control of the Holy land and Arab world and destruction of Islam in ongoing. South Sudan is only a small pawn in a much bigger plan. I think if you want to speak of imperialists and oppressors you are missing the big picture.

              One cannot clean his neighbors house before his own.

              So the big picture picture of International bankers, greedy corporations and Western imperialists can only be secondary to the supremacists one has in his back yard. Get it!!!

              You people think you’re smart hence you lack the neutral analysis skills necessary to bring out the human in you. Not the Muslim or Arab, just the HUMANE side.

    Who Said that Jau is disputed? Jau is inside territory of South Sudan. We don’t want another problem of disputed piece of land and media should not even attempt to write that Jau is disputed. Stop mentioning that Jau is a disputed.

      Who made you in charge of international borders ! or do you just take statements told to you by your corrupt government as facts.

      US Ambassador Susan Rice, "Is Jau in Sudan or South Sudan?"

      "It looks like it is in Sudan," Rice said.

      Later on .. "I’d like to revise and extend my earlier remarks," saying "the bottom line is nobody knows".

        Sum Eto’o is running crazy to the extent he puts wrong links or fake links. But let me Assure you Sam, you Northerners are going to face South Sudanese seriously because you lack respect for us really. There is no way, you attack our citizens across international border like that, however unless you finish us and you never see such happening again. I am sorry, and I wish SPLA army to continue.

    This fake Arab-Nuba governors become used to claen Arabs ass and doesn’t dream to free themselves from slave.
    Who say Islamic religion is God? It is just a terrorist devil religions. They lied that Jau is thier area but they never sleep and fart on it.
    Arabs know that Kiir is a weak president so if they captured any South sudan territories they claim its. The war with Arab will take some years.
