South Sudan Government, Rebels Claim Truce Breached
[link to mobile.bloomberg.com] South Sudan’s government and rebel forces accused each other of violating a cease-fire that was supposed to suspend a five-week conflict that has killed thousands of people and driven half a million from their homes.
Rebels attacked South Sudan’s army near Bor, the capital of Jonglei, and south of Malakal in Upper Nile state, military spokesman Philip Aguer said yesterday.
Armed groups have “not respected the cease-fire,” continuing to attack government positions, Aguer said in a phone interview from Juba. “We are puzzled whether these groups are under the same body that signed for peace in Addis or they’re operating under different orders.”
Rebel army spokesman Lul Ruai Koang, in turn, blamed the military and Ugandan troops for attacking insurgents near Bor yesterday. “The government violated the cessation of hostilities agreement for the second consecutive day,” he said in a text message.
The warring parties agreed to halt the fighting within 24 hours of a cease-fire accord mediated by East African nations, which they signed the evening of Jan. 23 in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.
Both sides were responsible for “mass atrocities,” United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic said on Jan. 17 after a four-day visit to the country. The UN in South Sudan is ready to “provide critical support” to the cease-fire monitoring process that is “essential for the implementation’ of the truce, Farhan Haq, a spokesman for the United Nations Secretary-General, said in an e-mailed statement Jan 24.
