S. Sudan to file complaint to UNSC over Khartoum aggression


November 25, 2012 (JUBA) – South Sudan is due to launch a formal complaint to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) over Sudan’s alleged violation of its territorial integrity, Information Minister, Barnaba Benjamin Marial said.

The move, according to Marial, comes in the wake of this week’s aerial bombings allegedly carried out by Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) in parts of South Sudan’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal state, killing at least eight people and injuring an equal number.

“This wanton attack in the territory of the Republic of South Sudan is unacceptable. We have recorded the details of these air bombardments and asked our representatives to submit formal complaints to the UN Security Council and to African Union (AU) and to some of the neighboring members of the Security Council,” he said.

The attack, Marial added, is a complete violation of the cooperation agreement the two country’s leaders signed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on 27 September.

On Friday, South Sudan council of ministers, during its regular sitting chaired by President Salva Kiir, urged the international community to hold Sudan responsible for what it described as “continuous unprovoked attack.”

“The council of ministers in its sitting chaired by President Salva Kiir Mayardit today [Friday] received and listened to reports of repeated aerial bombardments, in which some civilians have been killed in the state of Northern Bahr el Ghazal. On behalf of the government of South Sudan, the council passed a resolution condemning these malicious and wanton bombardments by the Sudan government in the area of Northern Bahr el Ghazal, especially in Kiir Adem where lots of civilians have been killed”, said Marial.

The Sudanese army denied attacking the South Sudanese territory of Northern Bahr el-Ghazal stressing that its attacks are limited to the neighboring East Darfur state where it had spoke about newly established rebel camps, 10 kilometers north to the disputed area of mile 14.

Al-Sawarmi Khaled, Sudanese army spokesperson, also accused Juba of continuing to back the rebel group’s members of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) violating a security deal were the two sides committed to stop such support.

Since, the Sudanese army remains silent on its activities on the borders with the South Sudan.


On Saturday, thousands of the population in Northern Bahr el Ghazal state demonstrated in protest against the aerial bombardments; a day after the council of ministers’ resolution.

The protestors, eyewitnesses told Sudan Tribune, largely advocated for stronger actions, including the national parliament’s approval of the army to react to such aggression, instead of using diplomatic means.

“We need to play our part at these trying moments. We know the actions of Sudan are of course unacceptable but we must study the result of whatever action we need to take in respond to these aggressions,” Deng Thiep Akok, an ex-commissioner of Aweil North County said on Saturday.

However, Phillip Aguer, the spokesperson of South Sudan army (SPLA) on Wednesday told Sudan Tribune that any form of retaliation from the army against external aggression, would require approval from the country’s leadership.

      It’s not that we (army) are fearing to die, but we are not going to war with N. Sudan again. Earlier this April, we did react to Bentiu bombaments and captured Heglig (Panthou) in zero minute and over sudden we were ordered to withdraw.

          Your stupidity is really very big to be overcomed. Big oil in Sudan now is in Heglig. This means the best weapons of Sudan are in Heglig and for South Sudan army to capture it in less than two hours show that there is a big hole in your army, but stupid person like you will understand nothing. penguin.

    Relying on the UNSC & this dysfunction called African Union is a waste time Mr. Kiir. You should forget UN & AU and deal with these terrorists whichever they want. These terrorists in Khartoum will finish our people one by one if you keep relying on the International community. Arabs want to revenge Palestinians on us if you don’t read between the lines.

All teachers in Darfur are on strike because they have not been paid for 3 months. People in Khatroum do not drink tea now, do not eat meat.

              first of all there is nothing called teachers strike because they aren’t paid, thats just made up from your empty sorry head. secondly, why you always make up lies that we don’t eat meat? we even export meat to egypt! and about tea, everywhere in Khartoum you find tea or people drinking tea in a restaurant or from those respectful women selling tea on the street for 1-2 pounds.

    Believe me, you don’t need to file a complaint to UNSC thieves, all you need to do is just to stick and honor the last Addis Ababa agreement and implement the security part!
    Stop supporting, harboring and offering safe haven to SPLA-N, you know what I mean, stop being elusive thieves!
