Two military sites of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) in Jonglei state came under heavy attack early Wednesday morning from forces of General Peter Gatdet Yak.
The assault cames just days after president Kiir accuses his political adversaries of an “attempted coup”—a claim widely interpreted as an indefensible. Some government officials call it “an inside job” designed to use as a reason against anyone who tries to challenge Kiir’s leadership.
Meanwhile fresh fightings have erupted in Torit, the capital of Eastern Equatoria State and Bor raising fear of a full war in the Africa’s youngest nation. The South Sudan News Agency was unable to verify as to who is behind the recent attacks.
