Jan 06, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- Reports from Saura village near Yambio indicate that South Sudan government troops have incurred serious casualties in their latest assaults on arrow boys, an equatorian based local defense that has been battling Salva Kiir’s regime in the states of Equatoria.

According to the local residents, Arrow Boys withdrew from Saura on Monday after hours of fighting the SPLA-juba in the areas, however, the arrow boys laid ambushes at Nzara, about 7 miles away.

Corresponding for the Equatorian Union, Muslim Gore reiterates the government troops were ambushed for pursuing the retreating arrow boys.

The source allege that at least 20 soldiers from the government side were killed in the ambush while the arrow boys lost at least two fighters at the scene.

After the ambushes, fighting escalated to Li Rangu as the government troops retreated towards their main barracks in Yambio.

“The remaining batllion ordered their forces to retreat and pull back because of the amount of soldiers they were losing in a short period of time.”Said Muslim.

“The battalion and remaining commandos fled immediately and called for reinforcements but a few hours later, our forces were once again attacked with heavy Ammunition followed by hundreds of SPLA Trained fighters and they are the ones our boys are facing currently on all fronts.” the source continue.

Arrow Boys leadership, which formally identifies their force as South Sudan People’s Patriotic Fronts (SSPPF), calls on IGAD and the region to deter Salva Kiir’s government from attacking their positions and civilians on Equatorian land.

“Our innocent civilians continue to die and starve at the hands of the SPLA, we cannot and we will not continue to be attacked, our forces in all front have been given the instructions to only attack upon self defense. We are for peace, but we are for peace that will represent US all in south sudan.” Muslim explains.

    my questions goes to entire south Sudan communities about mean of the on going compromised peace agreement signed in august last year, does it mean as what? If there is still bloodshed around the country,what does it mean from so called south Sudan national armies/SPLA-JUBA, does it mean that they are not inform about peace? Or they are governed paralleled with their own leadership a part from south Sudanese government by then if south Sudan armies/SPLA-JUBA does not obey the laws of south Sudan and the constitutional leaders it means that the peace should be done through their hands or if they don’t have power a part from constitutional leaders and then they should be prosecuted or brought to justice for their acts of violating the cpa2.

    Congratulations Arrow Boys on inflicting countless casualties on tribal militia. Salva Kiir and his JCE are foolish and hear things through their own eyes.

      The arrow men are very strong, the incident of Soura & Rii Lagu caused the SPLA soldiers a very big demanded. because the Commandos & Division 6 were mislead by their intelligent officers that, Arrow men where sleeping unfortunately their were not in fact the were aware of the commandos planning attacks. therefore, they changed their position and made an ambushed for the commandos & DV 6 and according to the reliable source about 27 soldiers lost their lives.

      Due to the SPLA soldiers in disciplined the turned their anger on the innocent civilians of those mentioned area by burning down their houses and raping women claiming that all are loyal to the arrow men.

    Those loyalists of tribal dinkaism regime will not succeed to subjugate the Arrow boys coz they are fighting for their rights. By the end of the day, the jieng elders have to regret for misleading the gov’t. They jumped into a wrong boat which is now leaking and will soon sink. No worries for their days are counted. By nature they are liven on borrowed days.
