Some anti-peace elements of the SPLA IG are still cowardly continuing with their skirmishes by attacking the defensive positions of the SPLA-IO.
Early this morning the 14/09/2018 at about 7:15am, the regime’s forces heavily stormed our position at Mundu in Lainya county but our gallant SPLA-IO repulsed them with significant losses. The remnants are being pursued towards Jamara which they recaptured from us a few days ago.
A similar attack this morning at about 9:30am by anti-peace elements of the SPLA IG was also repulsed at our base of Mangalatore in Kajo-Keji County with heavy losses.
We urge Juba regime as one of the key partners to the signed Revitalized ARCISS to restrain its forces from violating this agreement signed on 12/09/2018 in Addis Ababa.
We also call upon CTSAAM to keep investigating these broad day light violations by some elements within the SPLA.
