Sudanese rebels down military Antinov in s. Kordofan


December 17,2012 (KHARTOUM) – Sudanese rebels shot down a military Antonov plane while it was bombing an area in western South Kordofan state, said SPLM-North spokesperson.

In a statement release Monday, Arnu Ngutulu Lodi said that their anti-aircraft machine guns had downed the airplane on Tuesday 11 December around 11.00 am (local time) in Um Karisha area western South Kordofan.

Before to down it the Antonov was bombing Um Dorrain location, he said.

It was not possible to verify the claim immediately, but Anru pledged to release pictures for the downed aircraft very soon.

The Sudanese army intensified recently its attack on the positions of the SPLM-N in the Nuba Mountains, as the talks between the two parties are deadlocked.

The African Union mediation and international community believe that a cessation of hostilities between the government and the rebels will contribute to implement security arrangement Khartoum and Juba agreed last September.

However, Sudan says it would not engage talks with the rebels unless Juba disengage with the SPLM-N fighters.

      Very nice, very sweet. I do believe many penguins died inside that plane. Iam laughing. This is a game changes of the war in Sudan, the only power SAF has is terrorizing people with these Russia’s Antinov, but now our Almighty SPLM/N has everything to bring down anything moving in the sky.

    To Sudantribune,
    Every day you prove to us that your respected news website is completely biased and never provides the the news as neutral source that can accept both the truth or false unless you’ve the solid evidence of material in your hand that you can show to all people closing any door of speculation!

    • 17 December 2012 12:20, by Jalaby

      You mentioned that "It was not possible to verify the claim immediately,but Anru pledged to release pictures for the downed aircraft very soon!"
      By the way,is the name of this thug Anru or Arnu? because you mentioned it first as Arnu and then later Anru?! (Arnu Ngutulu Lodi - although I’m so familiar with Nuba mountains names but it is my first time to hear such bizarre name?!)

      • 17 December 2012 12:26, by Jalaby

        Mr. Anru or Arnu or may be Arnab (rabbit) didn’t provide any evidence or concrete evidence of shooting down that Antinov having the fact that Antinov could fall down by itself as we experience this in Sudan as normal issue and Antinov has very bad reputation and poor design and technology! If that plane fell down then probably because of engine failure as usual!

        • 17 December 2012 12:33, by Jalaby

          Since Mr. Arnu (rabbit) didn’t provide any concrete evidence of shooting down that Antinov such as showing the plane wreckage, picture, capturing the pilot or even showing his dead body then that news is useless and just a propaganda and Sudantribune should perform a high career of professionalism and never put it as BREAKING NEWS but mentioning it as follow:

          • 17 December 2012 12:41, by Jalaby

            Sudanese rebels "claim" shooting down military Antinov in s. Kordofan!
            I’m very sure they shot nothing but may be saw that Antinov falling down by itself or may be some one living in Um Dorrin saw it can’t fly then he told the rebel!
            Remember how many MIG29 SPLA/M claimed shot down during Heglig war but failed to show single tiny wreckage!

            • 17 December 2012 13:09, by P.K.M

              Jalaby, don’t worry; Sudan Tribune will soon provide to you the pictures you need as evident. You don’t trust Darfur fighters for downing your bomber? Don’t you know they were 99% of your SAF in the 80s and 90s fighting against SPLM/A? What make you think they are incapable of taking down Khartoum or to liberate themselves just like South Sudan?

            • 17 December 2012 13:44, by mohamed mahgoub

              J. I will make it easy for u man since u deny the excistance of somebody called arnu,let us say thereis nothing called Nuba in sudan,no SPLA/N or nuba maintains in the first place ,about the technical failure or the weather factor which always cause ur planes to go down in rebel held areas ,let that stupid SAF spokeperson say it ,u left nothing for him to say like this ,ana Sudani wa nubawi kaman

              • 17 December 2012 14:55, by Hardball

                mohamed mahgoub, we all expect Jalaby to change his denial to “ their plane when down due to technical problems in the rebels territory” that will be the next lie after the truth and evidences are revealed.

            • 18 December 2012 06:42, by Observer

              Since the Sudan Tribune reporting gets you so angry- go on -have the courage to stop reading it and go back to reading the Khartoum run Govt papers that print the stories that you want to read.
              Maybe you could ask your masters to let you monitor the Russian media sites- oh that is right you don;t read Russian. What
              Do your blood pressure a favour and leave this terrible biased websit

        • 18 December 2012 21:46, by Kalo

          Jalaba Ana Sudan, and N.Sudan,it was true the Antonovo was shot down and more will be shot down,will you also deny 7 tanks captured and 2 destroyed in Daldoko 7 km away of Kadugli,upto now you don,t know who are Nuba in Sudan.

      • 17 December 2012 12:40, by Makunon

        Your mind is blank and confused over reading facts of the matter. You wicked Arabs always dislike anythings building at your door. The truths of text is military Antinov is shut down by the SPLA-N. no matter how you call the name of the reporter. Congratulation SPLM-N" they will now accept peace talk, Arabs accept peace talk with SPLA/M when they ere defeated in OTB operations.

    My friend Jalaby,
    Come down, why it is so matter to you.. while it is just one Antonow.. No big deal to lose one ..whether by engines failure or by rebel downed it. Just send another plane to field to file a gap.

      Slave or the so called mistress or master, in our culture as South Sudanese, a man cannot say to another man that "I love you". You have repeated this word for so many times that you love Kiir Mayardit. This is a crime to us and we don,t marry men. Kiir will never marry you

      • 17 December 2012 15:08, by viper

        Iam warning you mistress not to again tell Mayardit that you "love him" otherwise tell me that u r having a gay mentality. Some of my Countrymen were right when they said that Arabs are "gay". We use to love, and marry girls,not gay pple like u. Go to hell with your love of men like you.

        • 17 December 2012 16:28, by master

            Lol, this confused Arab-want-be is still saying that he love the president of the Republic of South Sudan. Does he want to be the second lady or first lady of Mayardit? Do you want to be married? My country is full of good cultures that you will never understand when I tell them to u. To hell with your love of mr president and rest assured that you will never be married

        hahahahahaha, hahahahahahahah, oOp,culture of lying khartoum. How long will khartoum keep denying the facts. An Antinov was downed this is a no wrong message to be honest.

  • 17 December 2012 13:46, by Northern Sudanese

    loooool this is just like saying SPLA shot down a mig 29 in heglig. and the most funny thing is that these people still believe in it! where are the pictures of that downed mig 29???
    and if it was shot down at 11:00 am , its currently about 15:40 in sudan and still you haven’t showed us a single picture? does it really take 5 hours to take a picture?loool and still insects believe in that crap

    • 17 December 2012 13:57, by Kurnyel

      Our plane was brought down by Israeli; these monkeys called SPLMN would not have such weapons, even their fucken S.Sudan don’t have these weapons we know our enemies are working day and night to destabilize our country to be like S.Sudan.

        Look at you, confused slave so called mistress or master, you said that you love Mayardit and now you are calling the family of your husband monkeys, what a confused Arab- want- to be you are? The very South Sudanese that their son (Mayardit) has attracted you could not be monkeys when your husband, the very man you love so much in South sudan is not a monkey

        Bravo Comrade SPLM-NORTHERN SECTOR. This is a great news and it in the history of SPLM-N and SPLM-S that an antonov plane have been brought down. It is only Stinger Missile that bring the goddamn raptor down and during our 22 yrs of war, the goddamn west and east refused us the Stinger Missile and now things are never the same again Mr. Jalaby. Things are bad Jalaby really bad if it is true Oyee

      • 17 December 2012 15:05, by sudani ana

        South Sudanese
        So what if an Antenov was shot down? They are pieces of scrap metal and well past their shelf life anyway. They are only cargo planes rather than military planes like MIG 29s of which we have many. This doesn’t make the slightest difference to what is going on on the ground. For God’s sake this is war, there are casualties and losses in war as we all know.

        • 17 December 2012 15:30, by sudani ana

          Any single one of our brave SAF soldiers is more precious to us than any plane or tank or any other equipment. Unlike SPLA who who ran from Heglig leaving 1200 dead SPLA soldiers behind laid on the ground like cockroaches.
          SPLA weyee..

          • 17 December 2012 17:16, by master

            sudani ana
            1200 haahha
            the real figure is more that 5000
            go to southsudan.net & read press release from neur in america regarding Gatwic arrest

            • 17 December 2012 21:14, by viper

              Confused Arab want-to-be, what are you saying here since you are already attracted by the long beards and the height of my president? Seeing mr mayardit in black suits as well in black cowboy hat drive you crazy to the extent of saying infront of the men that "I love you Mayardit" just like a little girl who has spent a long time without a boyfriend. Go to hell with your love but Kiirdit will neve

        • 17 December 2012 15:45, by Hardball

          So, Sudani, which one is which? You guys can’t have it both ways. You can’t deny what happened and at the same time saying, so what? If it happen, it’s a scrap metal anyway. Just man up and tell the truth!

          • 17 December 2012 18:12, by Northern Sudanese

            Sudan is a country with 30 million people, not all of us have the same opinions. Furthermore, Sudani didn’t say that they ’’did’’ shoot it down, he said ’’so what?’’ if they ’’did’’ shoot it down.
            Finally, this shooting Antinov down is full of nonsense!

        • 17 December 2012 16:09, by South South

          Sudani Ana,
          Well, this is a big deal man. Do not try to be like other lair called Northern Sudanese. SPLA/N if mange to shoot down an Antenov, then they will match to Khartoum in daylight. Your fake Arab will run for their life like what they did in Heglig, did you forgot that lessan man. Hey, one more thing, I respect you because you are black man like me, but you are lost, fake black Arab.

        • 17 December 2012 16:23, by master

          dear sudani ana
          those guys no thing untie them except when they think sudan have troubles . They die every day in vian

    • 17 December 2012 16:05, by South South

      Northern Sudnese,
      Shut up lair, you are crying now but you protend to us to be normal, what a lair !!!, Yes, this is big deal in changing the war in Sudan, soon your thieves in Khartoum will be kicked out from the power. Picture is coming soon lair, what are you going to say tomorrow when SPLA/N displays a picture of this plane in question ?

        • 17 December 2012 18:22, by South South

          Northern Sudanese,
          This is real, Iam not making up anything here, anyone who follow your writings will know that you are a big lair. I said to you before that there is still room in my heart to welcome you back to your color and to your people if move to Juba, we will give you something to live on. The picture of the plane shot down will be posted tomorrow, what are you going to say ? Answer.

  • 17 December 2012 15:16, by Piny Amec Abethool-Jesus

    Well done SPLM-N. Keep it up. The National Crimal Party-NCP will lose for good. Homaar Hosaan is selfish and stupid. He does not care about Sudan nor Muslims in North. He only cares about his seat. Bashir said "89" he is not going to leave from his seat-" from seat to graveyard."

  • 18 December 2012 00:09, by Kenyang

    Congrats SPLA-N! Fight fire with fire- the only language Islamists in Khartoum can comprehend. Btw make it clear mini-States from remaining Sudan are the endgame. Who want to live in an African country infested by fanatics with dirty law of chopping limbs and hands?
