South Sudan’s armed opposition faction (SPLA-IO) has accused government forces of launching fresh attacks on its positions in west bank despite the arrival in Juba of the opposition advance team.

In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune on Friday, the official spokesperson of SPLA/IO Col. William Gatjiath Deng said their bases have been under attack by government forces during the past two days.

“On Thursday morning around 6:30 AM, South Sudan forces crossed the river from Malakal to West bank and attacked our defensive position in Makal chollo, the North of Malakal town”

After the attacks, Deng said their forces have made tactical withdrawal to avoid further confrontation with government forces.
