The rebel group of Sudan People Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) announced that their forces were able to seize the Kahliat garrison which lies 5 kilometers west of South Kordofan capital town of Kadugli on Tuesday morning.
Areas in the proximity of Kadugli have witnessed an uptick in military operations between Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and SPLM-N rebels since last December which saw some rockets landing inside the city center.
SPLM-N spokesperson Arnu Ngutulu Lodi said government forces suffered huge losses of life and gear, prompting SAF unit to withdraw from the garrison leaving ten dead soldiers. He added that two from their own ranks were injured.
