Jan 17, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Reports from South Sudan’s Northern Upper Nile States allege that members of Sudan People Liberation Army-North(SPLA-N) have been killed in the latest battles for the oil-rich Renk County.

According to reports obtained from SPLA-IO’s 1st Special Division, under the overall command of Maj. Gen. James Koang Chol, seven Sudanese rebels were killed along with over 180 allied South Sudanese SPLA-Juba forces under the overall command of Brig.Gen. Buay Rolyang.

“While conducting mopping operations and consolidating our gains, we discovered that ; 189 enemy combatants were killed in action including 7 SPLA North fighters” SPLA-IO spokesperson, Brig.Gen. Lul Ruai Koang announces.

The rebels believe that they have overran battalions of government troops, who attempted to invade their territories North East of Renk County, a report that is yet to verified by the Juba factions.

According to Lul Ruai Koang, the SPLA-IO have inflicted heavy casualties on Salva Kiir forces after four hours of heavy battles for the control of Omthelawich.

“Reliable, verifiable and credible information …. revealed our that our gallant forces under direct command of Brig. Gen.James Yak Dayem inflicted heavy casualties on Kiir’s tribal army supported by SPLA North fighters at a four hour battle for the control of Omthelawich approximately 30-50Km north east of Renk County in northern Upper Nile State.” Brig.Gen. Lul Ruai Koang said.

Lul believes that the SPLA-Juba troops, which controls the oil fields in the Upper Nile state, were supported by 12 tanks and other artillery, some of which were captured or burnt, after fierce battles at approximately 30-50 Kms away from the County’s headquarters.

“This morning, three pro-Kiir battles supported by 12 battle tanks attacked our round defensive trenches at Omthelawich forcing our combat units to return fire in self defence.” Lul said

“After four hours of intense fighting, Kiir’s militias under direct command of traitor Brig. Gen. Stephen Buoy Rolnyang were decisively defeated, pursued and fled in disarray in three directions; Some towards Renk, Dukduk and Gerbenna” He continued.

The source reiterates that the rebels captured 15 PKM, 133 AKM-47, 10 RPG-7, among other weapons and ammunitions.

“15 PKM light machines captured in good condition along with 133 AKM-47, and 10 RPG-7.” Lul states.

That is a wrong report. Our constitutional forces will never be defeated by Riek Machar’s tribal militias. SPLA will annihilate this rebellion and capture the most wanted culprit Riek, tried by a competent court of law and finally hanged if justice must be done at last. Lul Ruai is a militia propagandist.

Sudanese rebels of Darfur have been fighting for Kirr’s regime now for sometime, they have forgotten their cause in the north, i know relaible people in the Juba military intelligence who were responsible for shipping and smuggling weapons to Darfur rebels from Juba on regular basis, he said this is a secret which should not be said out cos Khartoum will find out and it will be a problem for Kirr’s regime, even despite agreement between Khartoum and Juba, supplies to Darfur rebels continue to flow from Kirrs side, they then bring the Darfur rebels in return to fight inside South Sudan to help Kirr’s forces. He told me and others that Kirr has swear with his cabinet to work to overthrow Bashir’s regime, Kirr told his cabinet they still have unfinished business with Omer Bashir in Khartoum, i don’t know what that means!

Many people in both South Sudan and north Sudan have been misled by Dinka thugs that Dinka are powerful than other tribes in South Sudan. Darfurians are believe propaganda that preached by food lovers Dinka that Dinka will granted freedom to Darfur if they still in power in South Sudan. However, Darfur people are realizing that Dinka are more talkative than action. Imagine that three countries are fighting rebels who have no source of supplies and are yet defeating government troops together with their allies. I hope their allies would regret that they choosed wrong side to support..
