Mini-war on north-south Sudan borders leads to cancellation of Bashir’s trip to Juba


March 26, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese government on Monday announced that president Omer Hassan al-Bashir’s scheduled summit with his southern counterpart Salva Kiir on 3 April has been cancelled in wake of the most serious confrontation between the armies of the two neighbouring states on Monday, since partition in July last year.

On Monday Kiir claimed that the military escalation was provoked by Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) coordinated aerial attacks on Jau and Pan Akuach followed by a ground forces assault against another area called Teshwin.

"This morning the Sudanese Air Force came and bombed our areas in Unity State but the [Sudan People Liberation Army] SPLA forces fought back and took control of all their positions,” Kiir told delegates of his ruling Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) who convened in South Sudan’s capital of Juba.

"After this intensive aerial bombardment our forces were attacked by Sudan Armed Forces and militia,” he added.

The former rebel-commander-turned-president said the SPLA was able to stop SAF advancement into the South Sudanese territories. Kiir went on to say that his country’s army managed to pursue SAF units all the way into oil-rich town of Heglig.

He claimed that in the course of today’s battles Heglig fell under the control of SPLA.

"They attacked our forces and our forces were able to repulse them and they ran away. The last information that came to me was that our forces have also taken over Heglig”, said the South Sudanese president, amid ululating sounds and chants of “SPLA Oyee, SPLA Oyee”.

Kiir underscored that his country has long been convinced that Heglig belonged to South Sudan but that he was willing to get it back legally and through negotiations.

"Khartoum must blame the existing groups from within it that want to drag the two countries into war," Kiir said before adding that SPLA’s takeover of Heglig was necessitated by the current situation.

"We said many times that we do not want war but they wanted it and we did not intend to recover Heglig by force but through peace and law but they wanted [a show of] power so [we] let them see it" Kiir added.

But SAF spokesman, al-Sawarmi Khalid Sa’ad, while confirming fighting on the borders of Sudan’s South Kordofan State and South Sudan’s Unity State, said the clashes were "limited" and carried out by the SPLA as well as fighters from Darfur rebels the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM).

Sa’ad in his initial brief statement said that JEM was tasked with infiltrating Heglig to target an army position outside the oilfields while SPLA clashed with SAF in other parts of the borders.

Later the SAF spokesman issued a detailed statement saying that at 8am a small SPLA force crossed into Sudan’s at Teshwin where they asked to meet with the commanding officer to discuss what they claimed was "Sudanese intentions to carry[out] an incursion" inside South Sudan.

When SAF’s commanding officer came out to meet the SPLA force, the latter withdrew and came back at 2pm with two battalions and launched an attack on SAF’s contingent stationed at Teshwin, the statement said.

SAF fought "bravely" after which it retreated 10 kilometers north of the international borders, Sa’ad added. After that the SPLA leadership ordered JEM units harboured by Juba to move in and take part in the assault, he said.

"Our forces managed to defeat the attack [launched] on two axes" Sa’ad said, and in the process destroyed two T-55 tanks, six armored vehicles with mounted guns and rocket launchers.

The military spokesperson said scores of SPLA fighters were killed after which they withdrew back into South Sudan, while SAF was making preparations to expel the "remnants of aggressors" in the area.

Philip Aguer, the spokesman for the SPLA, also confirmed the fighting, adding that when speaking to ground troops at 5pm on Monday evening, the conflict was ongoing. He said there were currently an unknown number of casualties and that the conflict was “an act of self-defense” on Juba’s part.

He contradicted what Kiir said about SPLA controlling all of Heglig but said that parts of the area were now under control of the southern army.

"After repulsing the attack, the SPLA pursued the withdrawing SAF force and they captured two bases of SAF between Heglig and Teshwin," the SPLA said.

“We still commit ourselves to all the security agreements between us. Despite all this fighting we are committed to peace," he added.

In Khartoum Abdullah Masar, the Information Minister who is also the government’s spokesperson, dismissed South Sudan claims saying that Kiir’s remarks on occupying Heglig "reflected extreme hatred towards Sudan and its people and the Armed Forces".

Masar added that the recent agreements signed with South Sudan in Addis Ababa and last week’s visit by a high-level delegation from Juba to Khartoum was "deceptive and misleading".

Multiple sources in Heglig speaking to Sudan Tribune said that clashes are ongoing around the area and that gunfire can be heard but denied that SPLA has taken control. They said that the SPLA appears to be approximately six kilometres outside of Heglig suggesting that it could launch a fresh assault at night.

Oilfields workers have been evacuated while SAF has taken positions inside the town in preparation for a possible attack.

The attacking forces appeared to have targeted an army garrison close to Heglig, the sources said, leaving two tanks destroyed. They added that the assailants overlooked the oil pumps and focused on SAF units.


Last week the SPLM Secretary General Pagan Amum led a delegation visited Khartoum to invite their "brother" Bashir to the summit with Kiir. Bashir gave the OK for the visit but officials in Khartoum later that cautioned that this is a preliminary approval and that the final decision has yet to be made.

The visit and the softened tone of both sides following the framework accords signed earlier this month on borders and nationality heightened hopes that there could be a thaw in relations soon after months of heightened tensions.

On Monday the Sudanese 2nd Vice-President al-Haj Adam Yusuf, in a live TV program stressed that the repercussions of the Heglig attack does not allow for the visit to take place and accused South Sudan of plotting to control Heglig from the very beginning to prevent Sudan from using the oil wells.

Yusuf warned that any attack on Sudan’s territory will be dealt with swiftly and emphasised that the attack will not pass lightly even if Juba makes a formal apology.

"If our armed forces are in the field fighting now then there will be not talk about negotiations until the situation is settled and if we are forced to go to war we must fight back" he added.


In New York, the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon pleaded for calm.

The statement attributed to UN chief said that he is "deeply concerned" about the military clashes and called on the two countries "to fully respect and implement the agreements they have already reached on security, border monitoring and Abyei".

Ban also urged the parties "to utilize to the fullest extent existing political and security mechanisms to peacefully address their differences".

He welcomed "the spirit of cooperation recently shown by the Governments of Sudan and South Sudan in addressing outstanding post-secession issues" and called for holding the Bashir-Kiir summit as planned.

Our vigilant armed forces,all the people of Sudan behind you and we want you to annihilate these rats. From now on every southerner is a legitimate target in Khartoum and the other Sudanese cities.

  • 27 March 2012 09:48, by Daniel Buolmawei

    African Union want to quit their useless moderation. Negotiations with North Sudan are always baseless. African Union need to read a copy of Abel Alier’s book, how many agreements signed with Khartoum and being abrogated or ignored? Apart from all agreements abrogated as in Alier’s book, how many recent agreements mediated by AU and have dishonored by Khartoum before their eyes?

    • 27 March 2012 10:00, by mohammed ali

      Daniel, it bluff! SPLA had broken all agreements & misintreprated every single concession! This one is quite clear.The excuses given by Kiir are so stupid for any naieve person to believe in! Kiir claimed few days that Heglig is his, now he thinks he can take it by force. He can’t . He simply ruined every prospect of peace with the SPLA theifs. They don’t care who will die or suffer ....

      • 27 March 2012 10:01, by mohammed ali

        ..will suffer as long as their families and loooooooooted money is abroad, safe & secure!

      • 27 March 2012 11:13, by Chok Deng

    Ya, this radical Islam extremist have been spoken since the team returned to Khartoum saying the team were weak and this is why they cause conflict again because they don’t want four freedoms to go on which were signed in Ethiopia. They decide to order SAF Airforces to bombing South Sudan for that matter. We will see how many wars does the Khartoum regime want to have it in Sudan

    • 27 March 2012 10:14, by mohammed ali

      Tonj, your president went to declare proudly that he " recovered" Heglig. His own words betrayed all his claims. He started this war to " recover " Heglig!

      • 28 March 2012 11:45, by amokraanthiec ooyee

        Ali,listen idiot, is the word "recovered" a term for you? if not why do you contaminate the whole article with a word? If he means what will you do? So pliz if you are still green about SPLA asked those who were here in Sudan to what happened in 1997 to Jalaba in Yei till some of them became citizens in DRC.Up to now there is an area in Kaya’s road where people don’t passed because of smell imagin

  • 27 March 2012 09:54, by mohammed ali

    Mr. President, you were claiming that Heglig is yours for quite a long time, you will be trying to fool yourself only! Moreover you can’t take it by any means because it is not yours. You have started war when everyone is expecting peace.It seems that is your last word!

    • 27 March 2012 10:37, by Dinka Dominated SPLA/M

      Here’s just a little sampling of peaceful Muslims acting just like Muhammad did when confronted with those rational enough to question Islam. So, let’s not be too critical of these misguided souls they sold their soul to evil. They are simply doing what their doctrine, imams, prophet of doom, and god all very distinctly tell them to do the wicked.
      This war as i know it so far is our victory

      • 27 March 2012 10:42, by Dinka Dominated SPLA/M

    I said it before u r not trustworthy, wicked, dishonest and conscienceless, but I don’t blame u because this is ur nature u can’t help it. However, I blame NCP nuts who believed in the thugs of SPLM/A. I’m so happy because this means no more talks about whatsoever agreements.SAF should seize power immediately and deal with the situation firmly and never listen to NCP nuts.

      Aloney, it is not a mini war! Your president had said he " recovered " Heglig. His words betrayed him! "Recovered" something whis he thins is his, that means he was planing to do so for quite sometime.His own words made it crystal clear that he initiated & started this war. He will bear the consequencies!

      • 27 March 2012 10:27, by Daniel Buolmawei

        Mohammed, I don’t think you know southerners very well. What consquencies you think we care? SPLA fought you for decades while divided leave alone now southerners are united more than before. No one in South Sudan cares for any consquencies. Now, you caused the war, let’s see who will win it.

        • 27 March 2012 10:43, by mohammed ali

    Khartoum is seeking all means to drag South Sudan to war,so that latter they will say we are provoked. Their target is the South Sudan’s oil fields. But will this tactics really work? One thing is that there is serious discontent in North Sudan general public on how the NCP is running the country. So the NCP wants to divert problems from its people by going to war with South Sudan.

    • 27 March 2012 11:00, by mohammed ali

        Mohamed Ali needs to be knowledgeable with the politico-geography of both North Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan. He must note that Heglig is not part of Sudan. A name change does not alter facts.Refer to before 1956 map of Sudan to ascertain this fact. Ya zol. Rest assured it is a unity state area.

        • 27 March 2012 14:27, by mohammed ali

          Jur, it is not part of SS according 1956 borders. Moreover, during the last dispute about Abeyei in the Hague, the international court of Arbiteration put Heglig direcetly & pricessly within the border of Sudan! Unfortunately , your claim and Salva’s claim confirm beyouned any doubt that the SPLA theifs had started the war in the vain hope to " recover" what they think is theirs!

          • 28 March 2012 04:54, by jur_likang_a_ likan’g

            Mohamed you are totally wrong. whatever ethnicity you are from Sudan, you know nothing about the true history and geography of the country. Hegig as it stands is part and parcet of Dinka land. It is a part of Pariang county. You do not to distort history and geography for plunder. History has proven evidence Jallaba moved southwards for plunder of resources eg slaves, Ivory which you can not deny.

  • 27 March 2012 13:45, by Atungdiak

    Mohamed Ali,

    We very well understand SAF’s conspiracies and opposition to the 4 agreements just signed. They intended sabotage the summit, hence, attacked SPLA forces before being pushed back. We are not war mongers and are not calling for Jihad either. Heglig (Panthow) is South Sudan, but, we don’t want to take it by force, but legally. I still think war is not the best option for both Sudans.

    • 27 March 2012 15:06, by mohammed ali

      Atungdiak, Your President declaired that his forces " recovered" Heglig with pride infront of the so called " liberation council". This the 2nd attack in two weeks time. The government of Sudan downplayed the 1st attack to give a chance for a negotiable peace!He said we recovered it by force, unfortunately it is too late for your wish to take it leagaly!.....con

      • 27 March 2012 15:12, by mohammed ali

        .. If you speak about leagality, the international court of arbiteration during the Abeyei had clearlu put Heglig within the 1956 borders. The move of the SPLA is wrong and miscalculated , particulary when announced by the President himself. He is nocice in politics!

  • 27 March 2012 13:52, by Atungdiak


    You’re preaching division in the South and you are very naive about our great Country and its peoples. Didinga are not found on that triangle and I wouldn’t tell you who is.

    We better stop all nonesense and confront the two emotional governments to let go their egos and put their peoples first. War is not an option now as only only the poor from S & N will die.

    What the "Apartheid" regime did to our brothers in South Africa, elimination of non-Whites, is exactly what the "Arabheid" regime is doing in Sudan, elimination of non-Arabs. However, the former is free; and, so is our country, but the war is not over yet.
