Sudan’s defence minister promises rebellion annihilation


May 18, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese defence minister, Abdel-Rahim Hussein, has reiterated the ability of the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) to defeat the rebel groups, stressing that they would completely annihilate rebellion from the country.

The Minister addressed a farewell celebration for the battalions of the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) heading to the military operation zones on Saturday and said that SAF , NISS, and other regular forces are continuing "holy crawl" to achieve their objectives.

The Sudanese official further praised efforts of NISS’s operations department which he said has been supporting SAF in all war zones including Darfur, South Kordofan, and the Blue Nile.

NISS armed units are established by the former head of the intelligence and security service Salah Gosh. They appeared for the first time during the fight against JEM rebels when they attacked Omdurman in May 2008. At the time, SAF was critical to their role but since they coordinate with the army.

The NISS director, Mohamed Atta, for his part, said that NISS will remain a strong supporter for SAF and the armed forces and the Mujahideen (holy fighters) until the country overcomes the challenges ahead and enjoys lasting stability and development.

The Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) rebels extended last month their attacks to Um Rawaba in North Kordofan state before to redeploys its fighters to Abu-Kershola in South Kordofan on the border between the two states.

SRF is an alliance between Sudanese rebel groups from Blue Nile, Darfur, and South Kordofan opposed to the government led by president Omer Hassan al-Bashir. It was declared on 12 November 2011.

The alliance brings together the two main factions of the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army, as well as the Justice and Equality Movement, and the SPLM-North.

The governor of Khartoum, Abdel Rahman Al-Khidir, and his cabinet will attend a prayer organized by the Quran Society on Sunday to supplicate to Allah (GOD) to defeat the enemies of the country.

The event is part of the government efforts to mobilise the Sudanese street and to deter any vacuum the opposition may try to use against the regime or to organise any activities hostile to the government in the capital.

          Ali, if the rebels were killing their own civilians; do you think they will be there fighting the government? Who is the government that’s dropping bombs on civilians indiscriminately using fighter jets? You can keep on lying here but sooner or later; the blood of innocents will come and hunt you down no matter where the comfort zone you’re hiding!

            Sudan Tribune; I believe your site security system is corrupted; there is no way the system would allow two identical names to be used. Examples are these two names Chol and another chol that’s not capitalized.
