SAF warplanes bomb S. Sudan’s Unity State, four injured


April 10, 2012 (JUBA) — Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) reportedly carried out fresh attacks in Abiemnhom town, Unity State, injuring four civilians, including a child, officials told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.

The spokesperson for the South Sudan government said the attack initially targeted a strategic bridge in Abiemnhom, which is situated west of Mayom town. Similar attacks reportedly occurred on Tuesday, with no reports on casualties yet.

“The Republic of South Sudan condemns the bombardment of innocent civilians and calls on Sudan to immediately withdraw from the sovereign territory of South Sudan,” Barnaba Benjamin Marial told reporters in the capital, Juba.

Marial urged the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), African Union and Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) to condemn Khartoum’s act of violation on South Sudan’s airspace, which he said is contrary to international principles.

Khartoum said recently that Sudanese rebels backed by Juba government have been massing troops in the Unity State to attack the oil rich Helglig area in South Kordofan.

        Not you alone Ruach, Iam also tired of reports from Marial & Aguer. Aguer has become a reporter, not a spokeperson of our mighty army. He doesn,t know how to speak as an army spokeman, he deserve suspension and replaced by a true army spoke person, somebody who does not condemn with the words of mouth only, but speak when actions take place. He is a civillian in SPLA uniform

        RUACH, why dont who respond? I hope you asked RIEK MACHAR that question because you love to listen to a greedy thief to wage war and to make peace at the time amongst civilian. But when BASHIR ordered bomb on you, you scared like dog and talk of helping SPLA to fight them back. While this is the same SPLA of JOHN you fought to sabotaged this freedom now. Do you all nuer make sense?

        According to Sudan Tribune front page, South Sudan just captured Adaryiel as people who try to steal the town name and call it Heglig.

        SAF is bombing Unity State in frustration that Adaryiel is captured. Since they don’t have the manpower to use ground forces to take the town back, they resort to their only option, Ariel bombing.

    ’There is no town which is being captured in the air’, ugly things are awaiting to happen to Khartoum Govt, time is ticking......your frustration and hatred against the people of South Sudan will bring red hot repercussions so bitter for you to swallow.

    Sudan MUST stop bombing South Sudanese territories on daily basis. Khartoum MUST understand that they are dealing with a sovereign state recognised worldwide and by UNGA as 193rd member state.
    Gen. Kiir, it is high time that u remove ur cowboy hat n put on military cap. Travel to all states of SS to mobilize all South Sudanese against aggression by North Sudan. Khartoum only listens to defeats.

      Higlig is certainly not under the control of N. Sudan gov, but wether its the SRF or SPLA, will become apparent soon!

      Unity state is being bombed routinely for no reason other than frustrations of the NCP for having their PUSSYCAT SAF getting whopped daily by the SRF as well as attempting to destroy S. Sudan’s oil fields. The NCP is desperate, RACIST RETARDS!

    Repeated and ridiculous lies. Why SAF will bomb Unity State? What are the targets that worth bombing in the entire South Sudan? What is the point and significance of firing expensive missiles and bombs on civilians instead of military targets? I’m waiting for any reasonable clarification!!! Pls. save your time I’m not in a mood of exchanging insults.

      Kim Deng!

      Please be patient. Kiir is using a low profile silence killer strategy to defeat NCP. you probably read news about how the North are begging Juba for security. Things are just inches away from hitting the bones for North Sudan.

      KIM DENG, salva kiir was the hero amongst heroes during SPLA struggle than folks who are still fighting corruption nowaday, so where are they? See, they fear of BASHIR but want spla to go ahead with it. And while at same time spla went to war against arabs, they will appear to be the ones to massacre civilians of foods, cattle and kids abduction. Do you think salva kiir forgot of you?

    Anyway, it wasnt a big deal for four chicken bruised. Bashir need to hurry up to wipe them off b4 spla take notice. Because these are the folks who hampered spla b4 while in war and pay to destabilize our country after separation. They called themselves ssla, ssda and many. They are coward gangs of robbers who stabbed spla from behind when going to frontline. Teach them a lesson mr bashir!!
