The secretary-general of the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), Yasser Arman, said its forces had inflicted an historic defeat on the Sudanese army (SAF) in South Kordofan state.
In an interview with the London-based Alquds Alarabi newspaper on Wednesday, he said the pro-government militias known as the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have mutinied against the Sudanese army in Talodi garrison in South Kordofan.
Arman added their forces have inflicted the largest defeat on the Sudanese army during the recent battles in the Nuba Mountain.
He also downplayed repeated threats made by the Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir to defeat rebellion in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile soon, stressing Bashir’s militias suffered a strategic defeat in South Kordofan.
