Sudanese president pledges to soon retake South Kordofan town


May 13, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir, has announced that the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and the Mujahideen (holy fighters) are “now” on the outskirts of Abu-Kershola in South Kordofan’s northeast and vowed to annihilate rebels of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF).

Al-Bashir, who was addressing the graduation ceremony of the 48th batch of the Change Generation Program sponsored by the Islamic Daawa Organisation Monday , pledged to decisively defeat SRF rebels whom he claimed to have killed innocent and defenceless people labelling such crimes as “terrorism” and contrary to all norms and conventions.

The SRF responded with a statement on Monday dismissing Bashir’s assertions and claimed to have repulsed SAF’s three-pronged attack.

The spokesperson of the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), Gibreel Adam Bilal, said they repelled the attack and inflected heavy losses on the Sudanese troops.

A source told Sudan Tribune that Sudan’s Popular Defence Forces (PDF) incurred heavy losses at the outskirts of Abu-Kershola.

Observers in Khartoum have questioned why SAF has been unable to re-capture the district which fell into rebel hands in late April. Around the same time, SRF rebels swept through the city of Um Rawaba in North Kordofan, before withdrawing later on the same day.

Earlier this month, officials in Khartoum said that they have Abu-Kershola completely surrounded and suggested that they will soon enter it.

The Sudanese leader also spoke of an international plot targeting Sudan and Iran and stressed Sudan’s ability to thwart it.

"Tribulations and hostile schemes against Sudan will continue. They will not leave us as long as we adhere to Islam and Jihad", stressing that the battles in Gaza and Sudan are against a common enemy.

Al-Bashir called upon the Sudanese people to fight racism and regional allegiances.

      No one tells their enemy that they’re coming; unless it has to do with an empty scare tactic! You show up to your enemy unnoticed and kick them out and that really shows that; your power has nothing to do with an empty alarm!

        South Sudan Rebels Overrun Town
        South Sudan’s military spokesman says a rebel force has overrun part of a town in the country’s east near the border with Ethiopia. Col. Philip Aguer on Wednesday confirmed the fall of part of the town of Boma to rebels led by David Yau Yau.The rebels claim they killed 50 soldiers, but Aguer denied that was true. He said he did not have casualty figures

    Stop lying to us, Sudantribune. Instead of spreading lies, you need to tell the truth. Al-Bashit militiamen had completely destroyed on the outskirt of Abu-Kershola since yesterday afternoon. Now, the lions of Sudanese Revolutionary Front are clearing the areas from the criminals. Bellow are the link to such news:

    But SRF issued a statement today dismissing Bashir’s assertions and claimed to have repulsed SAF attack that was coming from three directions..
    Continue to lie terrorists, do you remember Heglig battle when thieves invaded it and then announced that it belongs to them and it’s home of Dinka Pantou or Pantalon (not really sure lol)

    • 14 May 2013 12:53, by Jalaby

      juts overnight becomes home of Dinka that shit name!! ridiculous!!
      Remember how many times thieves mentioned that they repulsed SAF attack in their attempt to liberate Heglig? they said "they push SAF as far as 50 Kilometer north of Heglig!! Remember how many MIG29 thieves had claimed shooting down and failed to show one single wing of wreckage! LOL

        You all know the end of the funny story of that battle when thieves ran away quickly and left their dead soldiers bodies laying on the ground as good food for hungry scavengers and their excuse for that "we complied to UN & UNSC demand and we pull out our troops" what a joke LOOOOL

          Do you guys understand how the battles and war work?
          if you do then it’s all most impossible that terrorist militia to beat SAF in Abo Kershola, impossible!!
          IF SPLA during its full power time couldn’t hold Torit which was so closed to their suppliers on the border and SAF beat them and drove them out of Torit let alone Heglig!

            just tell me how those small militia who are besieged in Abo Karshola and has no suppliers now can beat SAF? how?
            SAF always has the upper hand since they own the air-force and warplanes!
            How battles usually work? SAF will heavily bombard the locations of the enemy inside Abo Kershola to neutralize their heavy guns and break their box and make a high number of loss

              against them, after that SAF will try to advance using heavy guns and huge number of fire, if they face any real resistance then they will retreat back
              and determine the source of the fire and ask the warplanes to repeat their attack by targeting the source of the fire, this will continue to happen back and forth till

                the source of the fire becomes so less and then the troops on the ground advance on!
                This besieged militia in Abo Kershola are dead people no single doubt about it, it’s just a matter of time till you see their stink dead bodies in Sudan TV or Ashorooq TV the same way it happened before when you all saw the rot dead bodies of SPLA sleeping on Heglig ground!!

                  Dear Jallaby,
                  You Northerners are oblivious of realities in Sudanese affairs since 1983. You talk of Torit, Heglig, ect, but fail to understand that this land belongs to indigenous Africans who have rise up to reclaim it. South has gone and it’s continuing till Khartoum is liberated. Understand "SPLA/M" main goal moron!

                      Mujahidin can not die, can’t they? because The Almighty God created only fake Arab in the world while marginalized communities of Sudan were created by shetan, is it what Luty Bashir means?
                      "An empty vessel makes more noise". waw!
                      The only guns which produce life ammunitions are with SAF while SRF deserve none, is that what bashit. means? hahahaha.

              Jalaby remember that the town you are talking about to bombard, bombard and bombard is a home for elderly women, men and innocent children, when the Revolutionaries captured it they only treated it from NCP slaves (militia)and still the stay safe mothers and children. If you bombard it, do you target SRF or the civilians? You are used to shading innocent blood and the curse will follow you all lif

      Jalaby read this quote:
      "Said Maulana Ahmed Ibrahim Al-Tahir Speaker of Parliament, it is not a way to coexist with the rebels, and that the language they know is the language of the gun, and must be dealt with only through the gun, and said: We can not live with these traitors (and either keep them or keep us)"
      Either keep black people in Sudan or keep fake Arabs, that is it. No more talk.

    National Criminals’ Party (NCP) is still determined to lie to Sudanese that they would retake Abukorchola; the town SAF announced to clean in few hours. You tyrant Bashir the wanted Criminal stop blindfolding the Sudanese, just give yourself to ICC for the sake of your poor innocent children you conscript only to die under the hands of Revolutionaries.
