Jan 17, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- South Sudan forces loyal to president Salva Kiir have killed at least 4 civilians and left many others wounded in Padiek Payam of Uror County, Jonglei State.

According to local sources in the area, government troops, who are garrisoned in Pajut, attacked a nearby village known as Karisa at Southern Patuet of Padiek Payam at around 6:40pm on Friday, January 15th, 2016.

Speaking from the scene, eye witnesses identified the victims, who were killed at the scene, as Thou Mangok Jock(male), Nyathor Rom Duop(female), Pajock Lul Juoch (male) and Duop Gai Lul(male).

According to Gabriel Chiejen Kim Wityian Yuai, a captain in the opposition forces in the area, seven other people were wounded. Kim identified the wounded victims as:

Gatkhor Lul Hoth — male;
Machar Koang Wuol– male;
Macoat Tong Mayian — male;
Nyatuong TUT Mabiel — femal;
Nyaboth Gatkhor Lul — female;
Mabil Pajak Duol — male;
Nyathak Makuach Luak — female.

Members of aggrieved Lou-Nuer community blame the attack on the neighboring Dinka Bor ethnic group.

The source confirmed that six children, who were abducted from Patuet community by the SPLA raiders, were recapture and returned by the Lou-Nuer white army on Firday evening.

While the motive of the attack is yet to be confirmed, political analysts believe the government troops are attempting to displace Lou-Nuer community from the areas that were recently annexed by president Salva Kiir to his tribe in new Jonglei state.

In Greater Upper Nile, president Salva Kiir has curved at least three states in his 28 states order to his community who occupy less than 25% of Unity, Jonglei and Upper Nile state, according to Sudan’s 2010 census.

  • Coward Dinka Bor and Twic East Dinka , do you want another war with our people and later cry for help if our Lou Nuer white army will attack you ? Remember your helper, Ugandan troops, are no longer there to protect you . Actually, where are Gatwech Dual ‘s forces when our civilians being murdered by SPLA forces and not responded ?

    And so it continue, Jaang will not stop killing you other tribes unless you start killing them in response to their aggression.

  • That is a old picture and no longer,you people have to stop calling for hatred and Genocide for no reason. Nuer brought misery to South Sudan even Soldiers don’t even care of a dead body.

    • Those woman of Dinka are now tried to take Nuer and Chollos land in the help of their man Uganda. Those Uganda man of Dinka will not stay here in South Sudan. Dinka will follow their man of Uganda. Everybody around the world know that Dinka cannot stay in South Sudan for this two years and half without Uganda and they rest of the terrors groups who helps them to fight against Nuer.tribe. Every countries around the world know that Dinka are woman. they cannot fight with Nuer. .

    Why would the army kidnap children?
    It doesn’t make sense.
    Murles are the only ones with such practices in South Sudan.

    Dinkas needs no lands of Nuers, Chollos or other tribes. They should be left alone.

    All other tribes should be happy with themselves and their Lands. They can’t cling to Dinkas’ shoulders despites being not wanted.
