Darfur: Sudan denies Sudan Liberation Movement of Mani Arkoi Minnawi (SLM-MM) rebels’ claim of killing 11 army soldiers in Darfur ambush
The Sudanese army has denied claims by rebels in the country’s western region of Darfur that they killed 11 soldiers in an ambush on Monday.
The official spokesman of the army known as SAF, Al-Sawarmi Khalid Saad, said on Wednesday that no clashes occurred with Darfur rebels during the month of Ramadan and Eid holiday.
Al-Sawarmi was reacting to a news report in which the Darfur rebel Sudan Liberation Movement of Mani Arkoi Minnawi (SLM-MM) said it killed 11 army soldiers in an ambush on Monday.
SLM-MM’s spokesman Abdulla Musral told Radio Dabanga that the operation took place in an area located between the towns of Al-Mujlad and Babanosa, 50 km east of East Darfur State.
