March 6, 2016 (KHARTOUM) - A Sudanese army field commander has announced, on Saturday, the readiness of the Sudan Armed Forces(SAF) to launch summer military operations in South Kordofan State, after the arrival of Rapid Support Forces (RSF) to Kadugli, the state capital.

Speaking to the RSF militiamen that arrived in Kadugli Saturday, SAF 14th Infantry Division Commander, General Yasir Atta said that the military operations will target all the rebel controlled areas after the failure of peace talks.

“The political, executive, and security leadership in South Kordofan are working in harmony and in full coordination to achieve a common goal, which is restoring security and stability to the restive areas of the state,” he added.

In the past few days, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), reported that the Sudanese army was massing troops in South Kordofan State ahead of a military campaign on their positions.

The rebels said they ambushed government troops in different areas, including an attack on the Dilling-Kadugli road and (Terri-Tajelbo) in Rashad County, in order to destabilize its military preparations.

The Sudanese military commander vowed to change the situation in South Kordofan in the next few days, adding that the Sudanese army plans to clear the state of rebels and rehabilitate it.

"The army will free all the citizens detained by the rebels," Atta further said.

On his part, the South Kordofan deputy-governor, Babikir Ahmed Babikir said that his government is going to resume fighting against the SPLM-N because "they refused all the peaceful solutions".

SPLM-N fighter are fighting the Sudanese government in South Kordofan since June 2011.

An African Union mediation team has failed to bring the two warring parties to sign peace agreement. Recently they organized a number of informal talks between the belligerents but no progress has been achieved.
