The armed opposition in southern Sudan, led by former Vice President Riek Machar, announced the killing of at least four government soldiers in fresh clashes outside the capital Juba, and pointed out attacking government troops stationed in WNWLT.
Deputy opposition spokesman Lam Paul Gabriel accused the Juba government of failing to abide by the ceasefire agreement signed on December 21 in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
“The attack is clear evidence that Salva Kiir has no intention of respecting the cessation of hostilities,” a movement official said in a press statement. He added that two armed opposition forces were killed in the attack.
Heavy gunfire erupted in Juba when military positions in the Habuba and Lemon Gaba regions were attacked, forcing civilians to flee their homes in search of safety in parts of the city.
The government tightened security after armed opposition forces loyal to Mashaar Juba raided Thursday, causing panic and forced the authorities to impose strict measures.
