Breaking: Fierce fighting erupts between SSPDF and SPLA-IO forces in Bankida
Fierce fighting broke out this morning between the SSPDF and SPLA-IO forces in Bankida, Upper Nile State, according to Col. Lam Paul Gabriel, SPLA-IO Deputy Military Spokesperson.
“This morning the 26/01/2021 at about 8:00AM, a combined force of National Security forces, Tiger and the SSPDF attacked the SPLA-IO assembly area of Bankida in complete violations of the Permanent ceasefire.”
“The SPLA-IO forces tactically withdrew from Bankida on directives from the SPLA-IO High Command,” he added.
The main opposition group strongly condemned the flagrant violation of the Permanent Ceasefire and called on SSPDF forces to withdraw from the area.
“The SPLA-IO strongly condemn[s] this constant suicidal act of aggression against its forces and positions by forces of the SPLM-IG; and, is therefore, demanding a complete withdrawal of this combined force from Bankida as soon as possible to avoid the escalation of this provocative attack.”
“The SPLA-IO remains committed to the implementation of the Security Arrangements in particular and the R-ARCSS in general but it holds the right to self defence when attacked.”
