Sudan: Army captures strategic Sudan People’s Liberation Army North (SPLA-N) rebel border camps in South Kordofan


The Sudanese army claimed a strategic victory on Saturday in its war against the rebels in South Kordofan, saying it captured camps on a key supply route in the southern border region after deadly clashes.

“Today the Sudanese army took control of SPLA camps in the Lake Jau area. The fighting took place at around 4:30 pm (1330 GMT). There were a number of casualties and injured soldiers on both sides,” army spokesman Sawarmi Khaled Saad told AFP.

“This is a strategic area because it is a gateway to the south. The SPLA receive their weapons and ammunition and supplies through it,” he added.

The conflict in the border state of South Kordofan first erupted in early June, just weeks before the independence of the south, between the Sudanese army and Nuba militiamen who fought alongside the ex-southern rebels during their 22-year conflict with the north.
