Sudan claims capture of rebel-held areas in Blue Nile


May 24, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese army (SAF) has wrestled control of two areas held by the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army North (SPLM/A-N) in Blue Nile State, a pro-government news source reported on Thursday, citing a local official.

The deputy governor of Blue Nile, Adam Abakar, told the Sudanese Media Center (SMC) that SAF regained control of the Suda and Gam areas in the Angasana Mountains which were previously controlled by the rebels.

According to the deputy governor, capturing the two areas came after five days of fighting in which SAF inflicted on rebel forces “great losses in lives and equipments”.

Sudan Tribune attempted to contact the rebels but they were not immediately available to comment.

Adam said that SAF’s “victory” would help to stabilise the agricultural season in the state and the border with neighbouring South Sudan. He further claimed that the rebels were using civilians as human shields in their fighting with SAF.

Fighting between government forces and the SPLM-N erupted in Blue Nile in September last year, two months after it started in South Kordofan State. The Sudanese government immediately sacked the elected state governor and SPLM-N chairman, Malik Aggar, and declared a state of emergency.

The conflict in the two states stems from unimplemented provisions of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between Sudan and South Sudan.

Failure to reintegrate SPLM-N fighters, who fought as part of South Sudan’s army during the war, into government forces led to the outbreak of violence after the Sudanese government threatened to disarm the SPLM-N by force.

    NCP n its SAF liars are on again. These areas have not had any SPLA-N soldiers. These are deserted localities. NCP & SAF keep lying to Sudanese people as a way to holding on power, not knowing Sudanese have lost faith in them. You can’t united country using bullets, bear this in mind.
    Sudanese should wake up n bring in peaceful leaders led by a true Sudanese party n not Islamists like NCP!

          WALALLHI if you say these bad words to me inside the mosque and the president of SUDAN is near you; I will kill you and then be very proud to be killed.

          Sorry my sisters are illiterates but if hear this they will force me to find you and kill you.

          That is DARFURIAN tradition if you really belong to DARFUR.

              There is definitely a reason as to why you are asking AAban about his origins. It is pure and simple=extermination. But now as it is aparent that you are a Jaali, which is one of the most dumbest tribes in Sudan, it explains why it resorts to war than reason. Pure. It is a very barbaric tribe in the world, the Taliban type. Thank God I dont speak arabic.

          Most of SOUTHERN SUDANESE here in this website are very fluent in using bad, impolite, irrespectable, street women language and even behavior of bad boys.

          Is this what the universities and training centers in SOUTH SUDAN are developing the peoples there with it?

          If raping of boys is very common in SOUTH SUDAN.

          YOU must understand that never happened in Darfur.
          Unless Those DARFURIAN REBELS there in SOUTH SUDAN have gained this habit from your leaders of SPLA/M.

          If raping of boys is heroiosim for you there in SOUTH SUDAN.
          In DARFUR IS not allowed even for animals.

        PLS PLS let me know your tribe if you are true DARFURIAN?

        2003-2004 Ja’alin didn’t do any thing in DARFUR. The rebel attacked us the AFRO-ARABS but we deafed them and got most of thier arms.

        DARFURIAN rebels are the main source for AFRO-ARAB DARFURIANS to be well armed.

        We don’t need any help from SAF because they take the arms that we get from you.

      Omar Albashiir must understand that capturing of rebel-held areas in Blue Nile or in Darfur will not solv sudan proplem,instead it is going to be worse!!Lasting peace will not be realized until people in S. Khordofan, Blue Nile and Darfurget a politicaldeal. Referendum is the key for the solution. Let them decide how they would be governed, they have no trust to their government in khartoum.

    This is propaganda by SAF there is no way they are gonna retake Angasana from the SPLA/M North. Beshir should listen to the international community and people like Al Turabi who prefer the Government to enter into political dialogue with the SPLA/M North. Beshir can not win the war but he can bring the rebel in a round table for amicable solution.

    To Aaban
    I don’t kow why you keep going on about Ja’alin tribe. This proves that you are not Sudanese. Just have a look at a photo of Sudanese soldiers and you’ll see Ja’alin, Bija, Fur, Falata, shaigia, Halfaween, Nuba and all tribes of our great country Sudan. The SAF represents all Sudan.
