August 6, 2020 (JUBA) – Fighters of the holdout group National Salvation Front (NAS) killed 11 South Sudanese soldiers during an attack on a military base at 15 km from the capital Juba, said the group spokesman in a statement on Thursday.

“On Wednesday 5th August 2020, the gallant NAS forces aborted SSPDF planned aggression by conducting a successful counter-attack operation on SSPDF forward tactical operation base of Tiger Division in Gorom Payam, a suburb of the capital Juba and fifteen miles (15) from the centre of the capital,” said Suba Samuel Manase in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

Manase added that the Tiger Davison base is used by SSPDF command to coordinate operations and its on-going military offensive against NAS positions in Equatoria, particularly present attack on NAS positions in Mundri, Western Equatoria State.

“In this operation eleven (11) enemy soldiers were killed in action, more than seven (7) others injured, nine (9) AKM/47 weapons, an assorted quantity of ammunition and other equipment were captured in good condition,” he further said.

The South Sudan Opposition Movements Alliance (SSOMA) including NAS and the government agreed on 15 February to cease hostilities and to abide by the cessation of hostilities agreement of 21 December 2017.

The parties were supposed to resume peace talks last March in a process mediated by Sant’Egidion religious community of the Vatican. But the negotiations were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Manase reiterated his group’s commitment to the cessation of hostilities agreement but recalled their right to self-defence.

            All roads in and out of Juba are "jienge traps". Shoot on sight without mercy till all get out of Equatoria. The kiirminal who doubles as "Juba mayor" is already a walking carcass. His liver is malfunctioning and working at a near 45% efficiency. He’s going out for operation and may not return soon. Chaos and power struggle will follow and Equatorians must throw their support for NAS. I have

            • 9 August 16:12, by jubaone

              ...a dream and can see jienge vagabonds and freebooters running here and there frantically looking for refuge. No jienges will ever be allowed to traverse or cross our territories heading towards Uganda, DRC or Kenya alive. Shoot to kill, period. Better have a snake in your backyard than a jienge as neighbor’s. Death to these cockroaches.

            NAS should kill all of them, rip them open with their bowels hanging out to be fed by vultures and hyenas. These dirty sub humans deserve no burials in our holy lands of Equatoria. One day, we will exhume all their dead and burn them to ashes. They must never lay claim, they died liberating. Death to these gorillas.

  • 7 August 16:31, by Crazy Doctor

    Tiger Division 9 is for South Sudan People Defense Force (SSPDF) but not for civilians. These 2 forces don’t want to join an agreement why? Anyway let us all strugle acussing each other but I don’t know now what are we going to do later? We have to think twice than killing oursleves.

    Here is again, the President Kiir Mayardit is making another mistake by appointment Johnson AJuma Okot who is not capable in term of Military tactic. The war time need master mind general who have more skills. To defeated Thomas Cirillo rebels then, the President must fired the current chief of staff general Johnson Juma Okot and find Dinka general or Nuer general for chief of staff general.

    • 7 August 21:51, by The Rhino

      Mayendit,

      You are such a loser and a moron who forgets like a chicken.Look here ya jienge,late James Ajongo Mawut or Gabriel Jok Riak were all military chiefs of staffs appointed by Kiir to fight NAS.They tried to fight comrade Gen.Thomas Cirillo and his gallant warriors by all means with big weapons given to them by bantu Museveni of Uganda.Ajongo & Jok Riak,a Dinka and Nuer respectively,.......

      • 7 August 22:02, by The Rhino

        Mayendit,

        ..here’s the question,..did they succeed to destroy NAS?,answer is big NO!Will they succeed in future?NEVER,why..b’cos mighty NAS has become very deadly, sophisticated and professional.Now Kiir is starting to panic,you can tell this by all his cowardly decisions in pushing IO nyagats/Nuer fighters to fight NAS.NAS will never give a damn to face and kick IO nyagats or Dinka IG rapists!!!

        Lies wouldn’t help you guys. Thomas Cirillo is betraying the farmers in Equatoria and there is no way of winning wars in South Sudan. Kuku people, Madi people and some of his Bari people are wasting their lives for something they will not be able to achieve it. Riek Machar Teny have been fighting for 37 years and did not achieve anything while, he was taking 70% of the SPLA I0.

        • 8 August 15:12, by The Rhino

          Mayendit,

          Riak Machar was fighting a different war.He was indeed fighting for his stomach, like most of his cheap hotel nyagats,pathetic!Foolish people by now have realized Riak’s weakness.But we hardliners from Equatoria are here to teach dear lessons and defend our ancestral lands, foster and restore dignity, order and the rule of law.Savages,rapists,anarchists and thieves have no place in.....

          • 8 August 15:16, by The Rhino

            Mayendit,

            ..Equatoria!If you want fire, we give you fire, if you want peace, go back to your villages and develop yourselves!Equatoria is for Equatorians,so it was and so shall it remain, full stop!!!

            • 9 August 16:01, by jubaone

              Rhino,
              Great for keeping our Equatorian flame burning. NAS is doing great and these worthless jienge cowards are already defeated. They are only good in terrorising unarmed civilians and raping defenceless women. Kill them, defecate into their stinking mouths and let vultures and hyenas feast on their carcasses cuz they are not worthy for burial.

    In addition to new chief of staff general needed, the President Salva Kiir need to find some rankings officers that were deployed in Equatoria during the SPLA struggle time. The President must considering finding bravest ranking officers who have had experience war rebellion and knowingly the Equatoria areas so that, the SSPDF must be ordered and go deeper bushes finding themand gets written of.
