South Sudan rebels say the army forces have violated the newly-signed ceasefire agreement aimed at ending a brutal civil war in the landlocked African country.

Rebel spokesman, Dickson Gatluak, said on Sunday that a military convoy, consisting of two barges and seven gunboats, shelled rebel positions along the White Nile River while on its way from the county of Bor to Panyijar in Jonglei State.

“The cessation of hostilities started at midnight on Saturday but the government has broken it. They are not committed to it,” Gatluak added.

He noted that the rebels would on Monday report the situation to the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the regional bloc which helped broker the recent truce.
