- IG planned Movement of troops
We have received a report from a reliable source that the government in Juba had a high military command council in Juba on 27/12/2017 and came up with a resolution to clear SPLA IO bases in Equatoria, Western Bar El Gazal and greater Upper Nile.
The government has already organized forces in Bor to be deployed in Ayod to attack the SPL IO bases there.
Secondly government forces are also being organized in Torit to start attacking SPLA IO positions in Imotong State.
The SPLM/A IO leadership is alerting all SPLA IO forces to be vigilant of imminent attacks from government in Juba within this dry season and only act in self defence. The resistance continues”.
