“This morning, our gallant forces under a joint command of Brig. Gen. Emmanuel Lemi Lo Mukaya, Col. Samuel Gai and Col. Noel Lomeri launched a coordinated counter-attack after the SPLA captured Jamara and Kupera last Wednesday,” the group said in a statement.

“The anti-peace SPLA [South Sudan army] have been successfully flushed out and we have seized full control of our territory,” it adds.

According to the rebel faction, 13 SPLA soldiers allegedly went missing in action, scores wounded and the rest are “miserably scattered into bushes and are being pursued by our brave force”.

The main rebel group, however, said they remain committee to the peace process, despite the “constant” aggression from government troops, and vowed to respond to any further provocation from Juba.

On Saturday, the SPLM-IO said government forces continued carrying out a large-scale attack on their position in Yei River state.

The rebel group further called on the ceasefire monitoring body (CTSAMM) and the UN peacekeeping mission (UNMISS) to investigate the attack and take note of this additional violation.

The government and the main armed group rebels signed a ceasefire agreement in December 2017 and recommitted themselves to it again on 27 June 2018

These attacks, if verified, will be the first of its kind for more than a month.

    The criminals in NAS must be made to know that killing innocent South Sudanese citizens on the eve of peace being auspiciously negotiated in Khartoum, is a grave crime. It should be documented well and these criminals Chirilo and his accomplices must be held accountable whether now or later. The killing of any human being should not be left as business as usual like killing a chicken or he-goat!

      Lennin Bull,

      You do the killing and say the opposite. For what reasons can a person from Yei kill another from Yei? What is going on is resistance against occupation forces of Dinka people deep in Equatoria. Stop producing rubbish in this medium ya wod jengawi.

      This was the IO and had nothing to do with NAS. I thought you went to school and could read and understand. Apparently, there’s no difference between a savage luakjieng and such like you. Stop learning altogether cuz it just doesn’t make any sense.

    As long as Juba is the Capital city and the country is united, any citizen can live anywhere he/she desire to live.

    If you don’t like It, then drop dead or stay where you are as a REFUGEE.

      Jienge bullshit. Living anywhere yes Ki, but not an exodus of millions of jienges everywhere. Did you know Rumbek was originally Jur Bel area, that Wau was Jur Chol and Nimule Madi areas? Now the same savages are calling parts of Juba: Thongpiny (real name Juba na Bari); Jebel Dinka ot Jienge (real name: Langgo). Everywhere they go, causing chaos, disorder and filth.

        ’Jebel Dinka’ in Juba was so-called so because the area was where the Dinkas were slaughtered by your arab masters and not the Dinkas who named the area that way. As for ’Tongpiny’ I am not particularly sure on how the area came to be called so. But what I know is the word ’tongpiny’ in Dinka/Jenge is ’groundnut (fuul Sudan) or peanut’. And I guess some Dinkas/Jenges, Mundaris or Barias>>

          or just any South Sudanese might have done some groundnut/fuul Sudan farming in the area, I am not so sure chap. And for the area being called ’Tongpiny’ or Jebel Dinka doesn’t make those areas exclusively Dinka areas than the real traditional areas of Bari people. So get Mr. Jubaone bring on another reason why just don’t like the Dinkas/Jenges than those nonsense>>>

            For Rumbek being Jurbel country, I also don’t know but to be honest with you Mr. Jubaone, your are lying. With Wau Acholdit many tribes in South Sudan claims to own it. The Dinkas claim to own, the Jurchols claim to own it, Shilluk/Chollos claim to own it, the Nuers claim to own it, the Mboro people claim to own & many fertits tribes claim to own Wau Acholdit, Acholis claim to own>>>

So what is your point Mr. Jubaone chap? Let me tell you this Mr. Jubaone>>>>

                Human beings are not static or like mountains, they move about. Otherwise the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan shouldn’t be in North Sudan to day. Most North Sudanese came from Saudi Arabia, Yemen & some West Africa people through their incessant pilgrimage to Mecca after they were ’Islamized’ after the rise of Islam in 630th AD>>>

                  and most of those West African people used to return back after Pilgrimage to Mecca & just settled in countries like Darfur. People like Dinkas/Monyjiengs people just didn’t want to have anything to do with the ’Islam & what the Islam stood for’. Remember the rise Islam in 630th AD after ’prophet Mohamed’ was ’coached by a Jewish woman’ to ’copy cat’ what was in the today’s old testament>>>

And that is how your Arabs came to Southern Egypt and North Sudan, not through conquering but through intrigues chap. And many of the West African Muslims were ’islamized’ through Libya, Tunisia or Morocco and not through>>>

And for the SAF, they were the ones who used to kill the Dinkas/Jenges in ’Jebel Dinka’ with the helps of some of your ’Bari traitors’. And even before the slaughter of Dinkas in mass numbers in 1983 after the SPLA took up arms here in Bor & across South Sudan, the killings of Dinkas started during your ’Korkora’ times chap>>>
