Sudan: Al Bashir threatens to invade South Sudan and disarm Darfur rebel movements
President Omar Al Bashir has threatened to invade South Sudan to disarm the Sudanese rebel movements allegedly based there.
The Sudanese president visited the area of Goz Dango in Tullus locality, South Darfur, where fighting broke out on Sunday between troops of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), and rebels of the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), supported by combatants of the Sudanese Liberation Movement led by Minni Minawi (SLM-MM).
In his address to the RSF militia troops, Al Bashir accused the South Sudanese government of continuing its hostility against Sudan, by supporting and sheltering Darfuri rebel groups. “We will give them [South Sudan] the opportunity to take the right decision, and disarm the rebels. Otherwise, the RSF are ready to do so,” he said.
