SAF rebuffs SPLM claims of controlling parts of Southern Kordofant

19 June, 2011 (UNMIS MMR)

Al-Sahafa – SPLM figure Abdulaziz Al-Hilu’s claims that his forces are in control of the Dallami, Haiban, Al-Buram and Oum-Dorein localities as well as 60 SAF garrisons around Southern Kordofan have been rebuffed as “baseless” by the SAF.

Al-Hilu, in statements to the press yesterday, said that the state governor’s assurances that calm has been restored in Kadugli is meant to mislead the public as fighting is ongoing in the state capital with his forces in control of some “key areas”. Al-Hilu says the SAF has continued its aerial bombardment of a number of areas, especially those under the control of his forces. He says his forces would take the necessary measures to protect the loss of innocent civilian lives.

The state government has also rebuffed these claims by the SPLM figure that it says is meant to
sow sedition among the people in the state.
