January 21, 2018 (JUBA) - The holdout National Salvation Front led by Thomas Cirilo (NAS-TC) during the past two days repulsed an attack by the South Sudanese government forces and clashed with them in two separate positions in Yei River and Jubek States.

NAS-TC-spokesperson Suba Samuel Manase said in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune that the government forces assaulted their position in Mukaya Payam, North of Yei town on Saturday 19 January.

Manase said the rebel forces clashed during two hours with the assailants who were supported by four (4) armoured vehicles and a number of soldiers and successfully besieged them after a tactical withdrawal from the area.

"This siege will continue until the enemy is driven out of the area at the appropriate time," he added.

On Sunday, the NAS—TC fighter repulsed another force repulsed the South Sudan People’s Defence Forces despatched to secure Yei-Maridi road and therefore to allow the force in Mukaya Payam to conduct its operations at ease, said the rebel official.

The SSPDF troops fled the area "leaving three (3) Mathiang Anyoor militia dead and three (3) AK47 rifles captured," according to the statement.

Besides these two clashes in Yei River State, Namase reported a third battle saying they clashed with government forces that were heading to attack NAS positions in Rokon area West of the capital Juba on Juba-Maridi road.

He said they captured ten Prison Service Men including their commanding officer Col. Joseph Lado Gboro in charge of Sirimon Prison Base, and killed at least ten SSPDF soldiers.

The SSPDF spokesperson was not reachable for comment on NAS-TC statement.

Last Friday 18 January, the rebel group dismissed accusations by the government that it attacks civilians and loots them saying it was propaganda to cover new attacks under preparations on its positions in the Equatoria province.

Be smart like an Equatorian and NOT foolish like a jienge idiot. Hurry up to Konyokonyo, Munuki or Gudele markets. You may get some "monkey stew". But with many hungry jienges in town????

        Two big monkeys (jubaone and The Rhino) are crying, crying babies. There are no grey areas in war. War means kill people and destroy things to win. Thief Cirilo can not liberate one singe house in Equatoria. I like the way Azande tribe calls Karo people, (Aworo), foreigners

          Equatorians are not Nuers. It’s not about numbers alone, it’s the art to track down jienge animals and bush rats. Find them, smoke them, kill them and defecate into the mouths of their "carcasses". No mercy.

                      There are over 770,000 South Sudanese refugees in Sudan. Do you think they are Equatorians? Well, the overwhelming majority are the Jieng. The Jieng have gone back to their masters, the Murahaleen. Even in Uganda, the Jieng are present in the refugee camps. In fact, wherever there is a refugee camp you would find the Jieng. Your postings are nothing but garbage

              The Jallaba don’t like the Equatorians in general and the Karo in particular. They know that the Equatorians are tenacious when they decide to fight an enemy. They have no problem in dealing with the Jieng because they have enslaved them in the past and many of them remain slaves in Meiram, Al Dein, Babanousa, and Al Mujled. But the Jallaba like the Jieng most for the fact that they

Your goal is to emptied Equatoria’s land, meaning you want everyone in Equatoria to evacuate their land and deserted to foreigner countries. Dangerous strategy! SSDPF is ahead of you. We’ll respect civilians at possible cost.

Jienge cowards have let Abyei go and are desperately focusing on taking other peoples lands instead of fighting. Others are in Uganda or Kenya, lucky ones are in Juba and can afford a warm meal at least. War must be brought to Juba and we see where else they will run 🏃.

      S Sudan,

      It would be a miracle for slaves to become kings. It will never happen for the Jieng. Historically, they were savages who never had any societal system let alone a kingdom. The majority of tribes in Equatoria had kingdoms in the past. The Equatorians were the ones who opened your eyes and made you human beings.
