Fighting has broken out in South Sudan two days after the warring sides signed what the government called a “final final” peace agreement to end the civil war. Each side blames the other for the attacks.
Clashes erupted Friday in Central Equatoria state when government troops stormed bases in Lainya and Kajo Keji counties, opposition spokesman Lam Paul Gabriel said.
“That means the regime is not serious about the peace,” Gabriel told the Associated Press.
The regime called the accusations “propaganda.” The attacks were instigated by opposition forces along the Ugandan border and were trying to reclaim territory, spokesman Lul Roai Koang told the AP.
