South Sudanese army (SPLA) has quietly suspended a previous plan to launch full scale offensive on positions held by armed opposition faction led by former vice president, Riek Machar, including their headquarters in Pagak.

Military officials said the plan to recapture rebels held towns in all the three states of Upper Nile region has been reversed by the recent defeat of government’s forces in many towns in Upper Nile state following the recapture of the state capital, Malakal.

A high ranking military officer told Sudan Tribune on Monday that the general command has decided to suspend previous orders and plans to advance and capture Leer, Akobo, Old Fangak and Pagak which are some of the areas held by the opposition forces.
