South Sudan to receive anti-aircraft missiles within months: SPLA


May 15, 2012 (JUBA) - The Chief of General Staff of South Sudan’s military, General James Hoth Mai, on Tuesday said that within a "few months" the government will provide anti-aircraft missiles to country’s army, apparently to counter air raids by the Sudan Armed Forces.

South Sudan’s army (SPLA) will soon "not have an issue with air defence," Mai said Tuesday at a meeting of high-ranking military officers, during a briefing over the government’s decision to withdraw troops from Panthou/Heglig.

Juba accuses the Sudan Armed Forces of dropping over 80 bombs on its territory since in became independent in July 2011 and has no anti-aircraft batteries or warplanes to compensate the imbalance of military power.

During the recent battles in Heglig, the Sudanese air force carried out regular air attacks on the positions of the South Sudanese army on the border areas but also deep inside the South Sudan territory.

Hoth explained that decision of the government to withdraw troops from Panthou/Heglig and it’s police forces from the oil contested border region of Abyei to comply with the pressure from the international community calling for unconditional withdrawal from the area in order to give peace a chance than military options.

"It is now the responsibility of the United Nations and the international community to protect the people of Abyei and if they fail to do so, we will not accept our people be killed in the day light. We will be obliged to reconsider our position," said General Mai.

"I have trust and confidence that SPLA is capable to remove Sudanese armed forces from Abyei if the African Union and United Nations fail."

He dismissed news reports quoting senior Sudanese officials, including the defence minister, claiming to have militarily pushed out the country’s army from the area as a "deception" to Sudanese people allegedly to recover from “humiliation” and “military parity.”

"They world knows what happened. When our forces entered Panthou, it took Sudanese armed forces less than an hour to fly. Actually there was no fighting in Panthou as you know. Our forces clashed with them in the morning of 10 April at Lalop and Teshsuin, resulting into defeat and subsequently started running away like flies that those who remained in the town could not wait for them," he explained.

The senior military officer explained that the government in Khartoum was finding it difficult to convince Sudanese people. "They lost the trust and the same feeling was prevailing in the army. They were confused with what to do because attempts to return to Panthou were not succeeding until our cabinet announced withdrawal,” he said.

"They were seriously divided and fractured into groups. There were those who were opposed to war and advocates peaceful dialogues and settlement of all pending issues between the two countries and there were groups who fall in the company of defence minister. They advocate war but I do not think they will succeed," he said, explaining further the government was exerting all efforts to provide the army with all possible operational equipment.

This comes amid public criticism that the SPLA has not been properly armed since the 2005 peace deal that ended decades of North-South civil war, to counter external aggression despite the army receiving 40% of the country’s budget.

He expressed the view that retooling the armed forces is prudent and in line with government’s policy of safeguarding the nation’s territorial and economic integrity and said “this was in line with government’s strategic decision of re-equipping and revamping the SPLA to meet the challenges of the 21st Century."

"The public concern is genuine but our people should exercise patience. Probably in the next few months, they will see changes," he said, explaining that the army has received some armoured personnel carriers and trucks and government is in the process of securing more APC’s and armored personnel carriers and tanks.

      Do not panic yet, we will pass on the anti-air craft defense capabilities to SPLA-N. With SAF air bombardment neutralized, SPLA-N embedded with SSAF will reach Khartoum less than 6 months. That is why comrade Adam Al-Hulu said during recent interview that they reach Khartoum with in couple months.So the criminal days are numbered.

      Even if SPLA take the occupied teritories by force ,still

    Hoth Mai, Thank you for listening to voices intelligibly. I am only for a maximum deterrence and nothing more advocating for a war. Since we are already at war with no North, we need not only anti-aircraft rockets but also long range missiles with capability of reaching Khartoum. I am confident that, this will ultimately change war attitudes from those carnivals or animals.

    I thought that the anti-aircraft missiles, which the Southern Sudan Government expected to receive within a month should have to be kept as a secret. There is no point of announcing this as it will alert the enemy in Khartoum to prepare themselves for another step. James Hoth Mai is wrong in announcing this. Military asset like that should be kept concealed always.

    It is a good idea to have anti-aircraft missiles,but it is good also for those of the SPLA Generals to considering jet-fighters airplanes too instead of anti-aircraft missiles, which they depend on it. Is Southern Sudan government not worthy to have antonov like the way Khartoum government have it?If Khartoum Govenment carried air-strike on us, then why Southern Sudan don’t carried it on Khartoum?

      I agreed with you Deng. Lack of secrecy in our arms forces is very dangerous for national security and allowing journalists to report this sensitive issue, to my mind, is very childish and problematic to our military integrity. Who cares, let surprise this animals.

    Half your poplulation is hungry and the UN is calling it a disaster and you wants to buy anti-aircraft missiles? Whats even worse is that these missiles wont have much effect because u will need billions worth to cover all s.sudan. And even if u do manage how will u defeat SAF on the ground in higlieg and Abeyi? Too bad there is no anti-SAF missles.

With all those mass weapons and defences, the well ground motivated forces of SPLA as being described by American Official penetrated or overun SAF in Panthou and stayed there for 10 days

        Then they arrest the wounded from Heglig hospital and show them as prisoners of war.

        Get a decent army first and then expect to be given/sold weapons.

    Dear brothers from South Sudan, the information of buying anti-aircraft has caused a great panic amongst the northern air-forces and the foreign pilots. The pilots are already planing to the leave the Country and are asking for their payments from Bashir. Shame on Bashir’s leadership. Please Kiir, help us help our selves from Bashir the vampire.

    This is great news to the people of South Sudan and especially to the people residing in areas of Bombardment. It was about time we needed this kind of weapon to defend our land and our airspace. SAF and the Government in Khartoum’s days are numbered without there Planes they are nothing as SAF are being taught a lesson in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile
