He says that their commanders there is telling them that, “Hundreds of them found dead and their remnants fled in disarray.”
Meanwhile, as has been the case in the last three weeks, James Gatdet says that the Forces from Juba have been exhausted. The so-called “last rain” offensive of Paul Malong Awan is dripping. The mission to Juba is brewing and will be per our terms.
Our forces in Nasir and Maban have put up stiff resistance against the attackers and will soon take full control of the two towns.
There were also a report of clashes in Maban where government forces were trying to pursuit SPLM-IO forces but only to met their fate
