South Sudanese rebels say they have withdrawn from the country’s town of Yei, amid fear of civilians’ safety after clashes with South Sudan army (SPLA) early this week.

“Our gallant forces tactically withdrew from Yei last night to Korgulu to avoid civilians’ casualties. We are still requesting civilians to vacate Yei as soon as they can,” said Colonel Paul Lam, the rebel’s deputy spokesperson.

Residents who spoke to Sudan Tribune also confirmed fighting between rival forces in the areas of Yei, Korgulu, Sanjasiri and Lutaya.

Lam claimed the rebels also seized most of the areas around Yei River state, halting escalation of fighting for the sake of civilians.
