June 4, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — South Sudan’s armed opposition, under the chairmanship of Dr. Riek Machar, the country’s former Vice President, reports that their forces have just captured “seven more tanks, all in good condition”, in Unity State.

According to the Opposition’s spokesman for the leadership, James Gatdet Dak, the SPLA [IO] came under heavy attacks at around 9am on Wednesday at Rot Riak town near Unity State oil fields, which the rebels have shutdown and have maintained since December 2013.

“They attacked our forces at 9am at Rot Riak area situated at the main road junction between Panakuach and Unity oilfields. Our troops repulsed the attack with huge casualties inflicted on pro-government forces.” Dak said.

“Seven tanks in good condition were among the war equipment captured from the government. Juba forces were therefore dispersed and ran in disarray in the direction of Mayom or Warrap state” He continued.

According to James Gatdet, the attacking government force comprises of a loose alliance of fighters from various divisions, including members of presidential guards, Tigers.

“The massive attack involved thousands of government soldiers from various army Divisions 4,3 and 5 including Tiger Division as well as pro-government militia forces of Matthew Puljang.” Mr. Dak said.

The Opposition believes that Juba was making efforts to recapture the direly needed oilfields in Unity State.

“The aim of the major offensive by the government was to try to recapture oilfields under the control of the opposition forces in Unity oilfields.” Dak said.

“Another force that attempted to push towards Pariang area were defeated and repulsed as well. These latest attacks are a continuation of the government’s “full scale war” project which is in violation of the cessation of hostilities agreement signed by the warring parties in South Sudan since 23 January 2014.” he concludes.

The allied government troops, militias and rebels, which fight on the side of Salva Kiir, carried out major offensives in April and May in both Unity and Jonglei states in what the opposition believes was an attempt to capture more territories before the rains intensify.

Although the government troops captured some major towns and many villages in Unity state, loyal troops were whelmed by major defeats in Panyinjiar county, Unity State, in which the government lost many troops, counties commissioners and state officials, mostly, from Lake state.

Fighting under a recently defected general, Maj. Gen. Khamis Abdel-Latif, the rebels report to have captured 17 mounted trucks, pick-ups and tanks in Nyal Administrative area.

War in Malakal and Aweil, Norther Bhar el Ghazal

In other reports, while the capital of Upper Nile state, Malakal, continues to exchange hands through major offensives, war escalates to Norther Bhar el Ghazal state.

According to military sources of SPLA-IO, the rebels have seized parts of Aweil county and established temporary military barracks at Achana Payam in Northern Bahr el Ghazals State this morning.

“Freedom fighters have just captured Achana Payam in Aweil county of Northern Bhar el Ghazals State this morning under commandership of Gen.Dau Aturjiong . Our forces are advancing towards key locations and more updates will follow” The Deputy Spokesperson, Nyarji Jermlili Roman, confirms.

In Juba, while reacting to “home-coming” of five out of ten former detainees, supposed to be in accordance with Arusha Peace Agreement, President Salva Kiir has reversed many controversial dismissals of high ranking SPLM elites.  He now agrees to reinstate Dr. Riek Machar and most of the exiled politicians into their previous positions in the severely divided SPLM party.

    Hello Readers,

    It is cheap press release: as always the Road Map To No Where: the Primitive Nuer and Shilluk militia combined are following the instructions and rebellions that will failed and ending up like other rebellions they have started.

    Those young Nuer in the picture are dead walking nuer primitive thinkers of white Army.

    Anyway, fighting the Proxy War without clear objectives and goals is a dead end road map to No Where! that’s my description of Riek Machar Ebola rebellion. This is why Riek Ebola Rebellion failed terribly many times because it was always formed based on tribal mind-sets Ideology and Influence.


    Thank you very much

      Dear John Aliap and Abuchook,

      I hope you learn very well that your genocidal government has no manpower to depeated freedom fighters. Its soldier could not withstand against freedom fighters without Uganda, SPLM-n and Darfur rebels. Very soon, Salva Kiir is going to run to North Korea for life saving. His friend Museveni is already convinced by Un security council that Kiir violating Human rights which is beyond our support that we stand behind him since the beginning of conflict.

      The Museveni is given three weeks by Un to makes decision to go with Un or with Salva Kiir. The United Nation is instruct Bashir government to stand by for further delays by Museveni to withdrow his troops from south Sudan soil. To assure you brother, “Kume mi tot will be kume mi dit” Said late John Garang.

      During 1991, I was in Kapeota there was terrible fight between Nair faction and Torit faction. Leave alone, Juba, the fighting was intensified in Chukudum, Ekitus and jabel Baluo by the Torit town. Buur and Lorajo were occupied by Gatdet Yak no one have access to other side of Torit. On the Juba side, people,let tell the true; I was there in Torit faction. The Torit faction and Ethiopia troops who were trying to help SPLA were defeated up to kit one in eastern Equateria.

      Now that you tell James Gatdet to feed his Nuer with lies, then it will comes true later.

      Dear Readers and Reporters:

      Even though peace may arrived, The history can jot forgiven them—-Dr Garang negotiated idea.

      The Back Stabbers and Tribal mind-sets Ideology and Hatred Influence groups of Riek Machar Ebola and Olony Shilluk militia can not be allowed to Hijacking our Nationalism and Patriotism history our Grand Fathers and Fathers and the new Generation fighting for.

      Please take note that and be well informed I am Here on this social website also to make sure that the real history of South Sudan and Nationalist citizens can not be hijack and rewrite and distorted by the breakaway and enemies of State of South Sudan. The history can not forgiven them. But we may make peace and living coexist.

      I speak my words out and May God be with the people of South Sudan.

      Thank you very much.

    James Gadet Dak is a doctor of lies. He lives in a different planet. Rebels have never laid their dirty hands on government’s war machines. Keep feeding your fool Nuer with lies.

      To All the Readers and Reporters:

      Kiir Mayardiit as the Elected President of the Republic of South Sudan and ratified, glorious and loyal Commander of the SPLA MAINSTREAM JUBA, will never resign , quit or remove by force if per Riek Machar Ebola Primitive Nuer Rebellion demand for  it and if they  force their visionless and hopeless will and greedy on the people of South Sudan.

      In fact, here are the most memorable and horrible and terrible crimes of the Century committed by Riek Machar Ebola rebellion against the people of South Sudan…and their properties and lives.

      In the history of South Sudan and witness by the world and citizens who lived in it,  Riek Machar Ebola committed the Following crimes:

      1- The Dinka Massacre Riek Ebola  crimes:

      On November 15, 1991-1999 the event known as the  “Dinka Massacre”, commenced in South Sudan. Forces led by the breakaway faction of Riek Machar deliberately killed an estimated 85,000 innocent Dinka civilians . 786,090 civilians displaced from the Dinka Massacre..   according to an Amnesty International (1993 human rights report, p . 245, section 5, part 8)

      2- The Nasir Declaration Riek Ebola Crime:
      In August, 1991: Riek Coup Attempted Against Dr. Garang SPLA MAINSTREAM TORIT: after Riek Machar and his comrades on August 28, 1991, at 5:30 pm declared a coup against Dr John Garang, called ‘Nasir Declaration.’   Riek back Stabbed and       
      Juba was not captured and his were defeated at that period and run to his uncle Bashir.

      Please note Riek Machar Ebola Apologies to the Dinka People and he and his wife Angelina Teny were cried and beg the Dinka for thier past wrong doing and Riek Ebola publicly accepted the responsibility and liability and Accountable for that Dinka Massacre of 1991-1999.

      3- Again in 2013 Coup Attempted Riek Crime  Against the State of South Sudan. Riek tools:  Misleaded by tribal mind-sets Ideology and Influence, armed to killed and loot and destroy 25000 Lou, Jikany and Gawaar young men were marched to Bortown and Juba and 90% percent of them dead or captured or missing or wounded.

      Pleaee note that MOST nuer were killed fighting  as armed forces and armed civilians organized and unorganized and  brain washed by Riek Ebola and on a behave of Riek Machar Ebola. In this case Riek Is responsible and accountable for the killing and murdered of the thousands Young Nuer people. Riek Must to Apologies to the Nuer people same as he did to the Dinka People of South Sudan.

       Here are numbers: 3500 Dinka were killed in Malakal and Akobo and Ayod. 800 nuer were killed In Juba not 20000 as claimed. 1000 Dinka  were killed In Juba. 245 other minorities were killed In Juba. Killing in Bentiu was gross human rights abusing committed by Riek Ebola nuer militant against other ethnic groups such as the Dinka and Shilluk and etc..

      I speak my words out and May God be with the people of South Sudan. Amen amen

        To Nyagats out there; organized or unorganized Nyageets

        Be very well informed that as long there are still existing Nationalist citizens of The Republic of South Sudan all bless by the Power of the LION KING, Then the SPLA MAINSTREAM JUBA ARMY will never be defeated or over thrown. period and full stop No doubt in my understanding in this statement.
        To All Nyageets, the SPLA MAINSTREAM Nationalist citizens defeated Riek forces many 100 hundred times before, now, then, and even in the Future and South Sudan history is my witness to prove this statement.

        To all Nyageets, the SPLA MAINSTREAM JUBA ARMY can fight war In 10 fronts of each states of South Sudan, and still defeating each front because these Nationalist citizens were been there before..Nothing is new about Riek Ebola or Oliny cowardly…rebellion

        Now Riek Ebola is on the run with his Ebola viruses: Now the SPLA MAINSTREAM JUBA ARMY is fresh and STRONG because It was full of Riek Machar Ebola viruses .

        I speak my words out and May God be with the people of South Sudan
        Amen amen.

        Thank you very much.

    Had the mighty Nuer warriors join forces from the get go and shut down all the oil productions this war would have been over in the first few months. Juba thugs that are running the so called Jaang kingdom had miscalculated the consequences of unnecessarily staging the coup and thoughtlessly have under estimated the MNW. Evidently the kingdom is crumbling before their very eyes. Many reliable sources including Sudan Tribune News also reiterated that Juba has suffered serious defeat and as a result loss great number of war supplies and now 7 tanks are also confirmed captured by the SPLM-In Opposition. Delusional propagandists like John Aliap and the hopeless loud mouth Abuchook can keep the less informed citizens in the dark about the latest developments and it would not change the facts that the only acceptable truth in this case is the defeat of the Juba faction of combined forces of SPLA & mercenary.

      How one tribe, could defeat 63+ tribes? You know, by the time you get to the third, and that if you could get past what you are dealing with these days, you will run out of natural resources to fund your madness. Check on how much petroleum deposited underground around the whole country South Sudan, and tell me if peaceful coexistence is the only option for the whole communities in The South! This info I’d just gave away to your sorry self, is the secret the enemies of our people use to hide the fact that, in a not too distance futury, oil as we know it will no longer be the only commodity to kill for. Just like when it was coal or olive oil. Every now and then things run out of style and Riek Machar, dragging his tribe on this lost trip, is the ugliest marks I’ve ever seen upon South Sudanese. How far could Nuer greediness go?And I mean few of them, to say the least.

        You guys forgot that the war was imposed on all South Sudanese and not only Nuers. When I insist that the oil be shut down its not so some specific tribes could use it in the future only for themselves that would be absurd. I only wanted it shut down to deny Juba financial means of buying more arms that are now ending in the hands of opposition fueling the continuation of the war and arm race. The one tribe that seems to be taking on all the other tribe in South Sudan is no longer the Nuer but Jaang are now taking on the whole country using the natural resouces to fight all the 63 tribes of South Sudan. The answer to your question that one tribe can’t win against all the tribe need to be answered by the Jaang council of criminal elders. The Nuer have managed to defend themselves successfully and no the civil war has become a national issue.

    I like the author of this cheap news. He could do better if were to write fiction books, I could buy his books. Last time they posted an Ugandian helicopter gunship, which went down around Kenyan border in 2012, and claimed to have been shot down on Malakal, on April 2015. It was a joke because you can easily find those archived photos online.

    Exactly, this is the reason why, Paul malong , Salva Kiir and other more want to die in power because there is no where they can feed theirs families. Again, they may know that there is nothing permanent on earth and there will be a time that they may lost everything.either family or position but country may remain the same.

    Abuchuk, is Gen. Dau Aturjong from Nuer, is Khamis Abdallatif from Nuer,is Gen. Kenyi from Nuer? You guys better choose another work to do rather then confusing the little spoon fed suckers call them selves acitizens, i swear every one knows that the failure the juba regime is, the regim is really deformed and is in need of total reform. Whoever might feel proud that this war has only destroyed the whole upper nile as it does, make sure that if we don,t end this war befor it’s really get hard, no one is safe in our country south sudan.
