July 11, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– A massive gunfire this morning on SPLA-IO forces at Gudele-Jebel checkpoint has been repulsed according to the spokesman.

While heavy gunshots could be heard on SPLA-IO headquarters from a distance, the fighting has now subsided and the SPLA-IO claim victory.

“President Salva Kiir’s forces attacked Jebel (Site 2), but have been repulsed now… Also there is fighting in Torit.” Gatdet Dak said.

The fighting in Juba broke out today at almost the same time as yesterday at 9:20Am but residence confirmed that heavy weapons than yesterday are used.

The opposition accused Kiir’s side for attacking their base and trying to use their daylight advantage which includes the use of gunships and heavy weapons.

The government side accused the opposition for starting the fight. More fighting were heard in other parts of the city including Tonginy, Gudele, Jebel and Hai Cinema.

In other reports, more fierce battles are reports between the two groups in Malakal of Upper Nile and also in Torit.

The number of casualties and who is attacking the other in the two regions are yet to be confirmed.

  • Where is the international community to bring the two leaders to book for the crimes they have committed against the young nation they have totally fallen to master their duties may they go to hell

    Oppositions leadership must know the odds of a long and drawn out urban warfare in Juba will not favor them should scarcity of supplies and logistics becomes a factor. and this is what M7, Kiir, Malong, and Kuol will be hoping for. So to minimized this an speedy defeat of these thugs out of Juba should be a priority objective.

  • I hope Mr. Kiir must have respect the dividend of his coherent loos.
    IO has manage to repulse all massive attacks though government claim of it trading accusers.

    However, Kiir and Malong must be held accountable base on their daylight prepective.

  • This country will not be the same again. United nation and Africa union are to blame for this Incident because they forced Machar while he knew there will be no peace under kirr mayardid. Now where is Africa union to halt the fighting which claimed the lives of innocent people. Hi

    Killer NyanKiir’s and Malong’s militias will and shall never be permitted to repeat the massacred of Nuer in Juba in December, 2013 again. The war they are foolishly imposing on the peace-lovers, the patriot forces, will and shall be ugliest for their(Jenges’) coward-traitorous asses period

    • Mr. Gatdarwich.
      What war are you talking about? Have not seen the Son of famous later William Deng Nhial being killed by militias of Riek Machar? Keep singing about war but in the end you find there is no benefit on all side either. The killing of late William Deng Nhial will cost thousand lives of rebels in South Sudan mark that brother
