NAS accuses South Sudanese army, militias of attacks


August 22, 2019 (JUBA) - The leadership of National Salvation Front (NAS) has accused South Sudan army (SSPDF) and its allied militia of carrying out military attacks on its positions.

In a statement, the group’s spokesperson, Suba Samuel Manase said SSDPF forces attacked NAS position in Loka West on Sunday.

“NAS forces responded in self-defence and repulsed the attack, resulting to the death of two (2) SSPDF soldier s,” said Manase.

A separate attack, he claimed, was launched on Wednesday when the South Sudanese government forces allegedly mobilized and reinforced its troops with heavy machine guns and artilleries.

“NAS forces heroically fought back in self-defence in a battle that lasted the whole day in which the SSPDF were finally defeated and pursued back to Lainya and Loka West fleeing in disarray,” said Manase.

He added, “The SSPDF left behind twenty (20) soldiers killed in action and large deposits of ammunition in good condition”.

The South Sudanese army spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang requested for more time to crosscheck the information when contacted by Sudan Tribune on Friday.

The group, however, reiterated its commitment to the cessation of hostilities agreement signed in Addis Ababa in December 2017 and expressed willingness to participate in negotiations to end war.

The attacks came as South Sudan’s warring parties convened in Addis Ababa on Wednesday to review progress made in the implementation of the revitalized accord on the country’s conflict.

In September 2018, South Sudan’s arch-foes signed a revitalized peace agreement to end the country’s civil war that has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced more than two million.

The holdout opposition group, led by General Thomas Cirillo, did not sign the peace agreement.

    Congratulations!NAS brave warriors are defending their positions with sweat and blood.Any jienge or stooge who dare cross to NAS’s hot zones is a dead meat!

      The Rhino,

      This is a big lie of monkeys. They are very desperate to release bogus lies. They have no soldiers and they can’t fight with us, the end.

      • 23 August 2019 11:58, by Eastern

        South South,

        SPLA-IO is defeated and their leader is PARKED in South Africa, Malong does not have spoldiers and now NAS have no soldiers to fight you - they are just rats and monkeys. Thank you...!

        • 23 August 2019 12:13, by South South


          "Malong does not have spoldier", what is that Eastern?
          Coming back to what you said. Yes, we defeated IO, we captured every small town they were in including their headquarters "Pagak", finished there. Malong lost his right hand man, Manut Yel, he was killed by our army. His general, Kuol Athoy Hall was captured and he is right now in Wunyiik. All his soldiers surrendered.

          • 23 August 2019 12:21, by South South


            Continue: Thomas Cirillo has no soldiers on the ground, this is the only reason he is hiding in Addis. Don’t you have a head to think like a human being or you are just a monkey. How could a general who has an army can be hiding outside the country and leave his forces alone? Answer that to me. Maybe your smart Dinka wife can help you to answer that, she is a very smart Dinka woman.

            • 23 August 2019 12:31, by Eastern

              South South,

              You evading the question....BOTH Machar and Malong are living in neighbouring capitals of Khartoum and Niarobi respectively but the war is being fought in South Sudan. While Machar was locked away in distant Msanzi, did the war stop..?! Along with Manut Yel, Kiir also lost men. This is how the war game plays out...!

              • 23 August 2019 13:09, by South South


                You are totally wrong. The moment Machar was locked up in South Africa, he lost the war, done. Malong never been active in the field. he used to have 90 soldiers in Mariam, north Sudan. Sudan chased them away from its territory. They came to War Ayen, pretended like surrendering, but they were fought and chased away again, they moved to Lol State, all of them were killed and captured.

                • 23 August 2019 14:14, by Eastern

                  All of them were killed and captured, lol...! Your lies will soon stare you in the face..!

                  • 23 August 2019 14:29, by South South


                    When it comes to war, we don’t play games. " “Major General Kuol Athuai was the commander of the rebel fighters who launched the attack. Kuol was captured alive after being shot in the clashes,” Anei said."

                    Follow facebook and you will see Malong’s soldiers lining up on the ground after been captured.

                    • 23 August 2019 14:43, by Eastern

                      South South,

                      The duty of a soldier comes first: he either kills or he’s killed in action...I love the game unfolding in the heart of Malual dinkaland....

                      • 23 August 2019 14:49, by South South


                        But you are a big coward, that why you ran to USA to sit under computer 24/7 a week. Your Dinka wife is your master at home. You run to her everyday to get a little information about South Sudan. We are the masters of the war and you will be taught very dear lessons if attempt to stand on our way, the end.

                        • 23 August 2019 15:03, by Eastern

                          I gave you a lot of clues to locate me in Juba but you were obsessed with some old man only known to you residing in the USA - I am here in Juba, Munuki Mia Saba (107). Not far from Bilpam (near the bad section of the road - the big pool of water). Come let’s have tea togther..!

                        • 23 August 2019 16:37, by Eastern

                          South South,

                          Any rebellion aagainst the tribla and inept regime in Juba is a no holds barred - anything and any means can be used in executing the same...!

                    • 23 August 2019 21:05, by jubaone

                      I saw the video footage of Malong’s captured soldiers in N. Bahr el Ghasal. Pathetic. Their old commander could be over 70yrs. Poorly trained, outgunned and without military strategies, they were easily pounced. Is that how jienges
                      fight? Let them learn from NAS or IO, over 5,000 nyors have been put out of action since 2016 in Equatoria alone. They can’t face armed Equatorians.

          • 24 August 2019 09:32, by deng

            South South,
            I can’t believe you guys are talking about Malong and celebrating about people that were killed bcoz they were Malong’s followers. This man Paul Malong arrival saved your ass and now he is fired, your ass is singing with joys. Upper niles oil has been used to bribes neighbors presidents to keep looting going. Malong is also damn he’d have attack Awan long time ago if he got soldiers.

        South South,

        Your malnourished Dinka forces were badly humiliated and defeated in different fronts,..Lob’bonok,Loka West and Lainya with surgical precision.NAS gallant warriors are right now on maximum alert.Once their positions are attacked again, they will respond with full force!We don’t play games!

          The Rhino,

                Mr. the Rhino,
                Your Thomas Cirillo was ’came out Juba of Juba’ in 1992 and was ’awarded a high ranking position’ by Dr. John Garang over other battle hardened SPLM/A boys. Your Thomas Cirillo stolen SPLA army money and ran to Abesh (so-called ethiopia), went and formed so-called NAS which was just ’misnomer of Nath (people) in our Nuer nyantoc language’>>>>

                • 23 August 2019 19:24, by Pakuai

                  the word ’nath’ is an ’Arabic word’ to mean "people". So why do our ’Nuer ke nyantoc’ think they got ’mother tongue" from? Not from Arabs, our Nuer ke nyantoc are the most losers on face of earth. They ’copy cat every piece of rubbish on earth without first finding out about that something’.>>>

                  • 23 August 2019 19:34, by Pakuai

                    the Dinkas/Jiengs share over 70 percent of dialect with our Nuers ke nyantoc. Our Nuers ke nyantoc speak ’the Dinkas/Jaang ’language anyway’. Mr. the Rhino, we have informed you fools. We are not play games with you trashes some of these days. Your losers like Mr. Thomas Cirillo, Mr. Riek Machar, Pagan Amuom, Lam Akol and their other foreign puppets/stooges are going to be dead fool>>>

        • 23 August 2019 17:20, by The Rhino


          We’ve learned that those rebel fighters belonging to Malong in Korok West County were indeed lured for peace prior to their fate.Kiir commanders on the ground decided to butcher them while they were defenselessly surrendering.The whole scheme was to give an impression that Kiir Dinka forces are still strong..nonsense!They are not,they are true cowards,we know this in Central Equatoria!

          The Rhino,
          Monkey, people are returning to Lanyina in big numbers, they are asking our government to help them with teachers so that they can send their children to schools. Monkey, country is under controlled, end of the game.

            Any government on this planet is supposed to provide services to its population.Secure country’s own sovereignty and integrity, and protect the constitution of the nation from foreign and domestic enemies.Now what you fucking Dinka are doing in South Sudan is totally disgusting,..selling out country’s wealth and future to foreign presidents, what kind of shit is that?Answer!

            • 23 August 2019 20:47, by Eastern

              The Rhino,

              Those dinka rebels were starving and when they heard of food delivery having been made in the locale recently, hunger became their compass and hence the near annihilation...!

              • 23 August 2019 22:28, by The Rhino


                Food is an absolute effective weapon,stronger than any other killing machine you can purchase on the market,if only you know all hidden secrets of controlling and merchandising it,solid!We know that Dinka are in Equatoria b’cos they love food.History even proofed this shit,South Sudan rebels under John Garang could not have survived the long liberation struggle in South Sudan....

                • 23 August 2019 22:38, by The Rhino


                  ..without sufficient supply of that mighty food(mostly from Equatoria) up to 2005!He/Garang was almost done with liberation war in early 90s,but through the power of our cassava and goats during dreadful, desperate and painful times, he resuscitated to continue the movement for this country.Now to have an ungrateful Dinka gov’t spitting shit on our faces in Equatoria,not once....

                  • 23 August 2019 22:44, by The Rhino


                    ..but many times, is enough to turn up the real monsters in us to crucify them/Dinka without any mercy.We’ll never relent until all Dinka are out of Equatoria,full stop!

                    • 24 August 2019 02:44, by jubaone

                      Rhino, Eastern
                      Great! Jienges are hoping for help from Uganda. NAS is made up of seasoned Equatorian fighters just like most in IO based in Equatoria. Most Nuer IOs are in their areas and so when nyors come to fight,they are deceived that NAS has spears. Well, most are out of action. Dont worry, their lives are worthless it’s like killing cockroaches or street dogs.
