20200912 NAS Latest Press Release Attacks inside DRC and other CoHA violations

Congolese authorities have arrested four SPLM-IO soldiers 3 kilometers deep inside Congo who were part of a joint Kiir’s SSPDF and Machar’s SPLM-IO offensive that plundered villages, torched huts, looted animals, food, and household property belonging to Congolese citizens and South Sudanese refugees.

Also on 9th September 2020, the SSPDF and SPLA-IO carried out joint military attacks on NAS positions at Laiza and Agabe, Morobo County, Central Equatoria State.

Looted relief items spotted at SSPDF Kulipapa base

Items from a cargo of humanitarian aid meant for the displaced communities in Lainya County, Central Equatoria State have been spotted at an SSPDF base in Kulipapa just hours after two civilian lorries carrying the cargo were ambushed, looted, and then burned not too far away from the Kiir’s SSPDF base on August 29.

How SSPDF tried and failed to cover up an internal conflict by blaming NAS

On August 23, an administrative vehicle belonging to Kiir’s SSPDF was ambushed on its way to a base at Mile 55 resulting in the loss of the lives of 4 soldiers including one Colonel Bethuel Lasuba. The ambush, we can now confirm, was an internal SSPDF operation carried out by disgruntled and demoralized soldiers – a fact that the SSPDF Spokesman badly attempted to cover up by alleging that the National Salvation Front (NAS) was behind it.
