April 8, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Local authority from South Sudan’s Western Bahr el Ghazal State confirms that a Sudanese Antonov has bombed in Raja County yesterday.

According to James Benjamin, the County Commissioner, the Antonov from Sudan dropped 24 bombs in Deleiba Payam at around 1:30pm, South Sudan local time.

“What happened is an Antonov of Sudan at 1:32 bombed Deleiba Payam with 24 bombs. Twenty bombs fell within the village and four fell outside in the forest.” Mr. Benjamin explains.

Unlike in the past, Benjamin believes that the residents escaped the targeted scenes as soon as they heard the Antonov approaching, and so no body was hurt.

“The citizens when they heard the sound of the bombs had fled so there were no casualties among the civilians.” Benjamin explains.

The Sudanese warplanes have bombed in Raja County, lately in 2014, in pursuit of their rebels, who are believed to be hosted in the County, an allegation that the commissioner denies.

The two neighboring Sudans have exchanged accusations on harboring and supporting rebels groups of the other.

Four factions of Sudanese rebels are believed to be fighting alongside Salva Kiir troops in Unity and Upper Nile state.

    There are in that area what N-Sudan Government calls terrorist militias of its N-Sudan nationals and they are supported, harbored, and financially funded by M7 and Salva Kiir’s terrorist ethnic regime. US should stop funding Uganda because Uganda is helping South Sudan in its terrorist activities against the innocent people of South Sudan.

  • Tell all GEM to leave the area or you will be the victim

  • When we voted for separation we were relying on US & UK to have our back and turn our motherland South Sudan into one of the best country in Africa in term of general development through Trusteeship we never knew they would forget us to be continually killed by Bashir,Riak,M7 & Salva.

    South Sudan should play the same game of Antinov bombing Khartoum Government is playing in South Sudan,Why not?

  • South Sudan is poor, Commissioner’s probe for Sudanese plan is just using 18th century mean of knowing direction by just saying it came from direction of Sudan.
