South Sudan rebels attack government positions in oil states

04 Apr 2023  |  AP News
South Sudan's defense minister, Kuol Manyang Juuk, reported that rebels attacked government positions in two oil-producing states, Unity State and Upper Nile state, signaling a breach in the recent truce. The rebels shelled Bentiu, the capital of Unity State, and the town of Nasir, prompting government forces to retaliate. The defense minister questioned the rebel leader Riek Machar's commitment to peace, suggesting he may not have control over his forces. The conflict in South Sudan, which began in December 2013, is largely along ethnic lines, with Machar's Nuer forces opposing President Salva Kiir's Dinka troops. The country is also facing a humanitarian crisis, with aid groups warning of the need for $600 million in supplies before the wet season. UNICEF announced the release of 300 children from an armed group, following an earlier release of 249 children, with hopes to release up to 3,000 children eventually.

It targets children in six states and has reached over 117,000 beneficiaries, including 46,010 girls and 1,647 children with disabilities. The programme also addresses cultural barriers, long distances to schools, and climate-change-induced floods that disrupt education.

Despite the progress, challenges remain, including a significant funding gap estimated at nearly $190 million by 2022.

South Sudan rebels attack villages, march on others

15 Nov 2012  |  news.trust.org
Rebels in South Sudan, led by the David Yau Yau militia, have launched attacks on several villages in the oil-rich state of Jonglei, threatening government plans to develop a major oilfield with the assistance of France's Total and other foreign companies. The violence comes as South Sudan, which gained independence from Sudan in 2011, struggles to maintain control over its territories. The conflict has been exacerbated by tribal clashes and a controversial disarmament campaign that has been accused of abuses. The United Nations reported nearly 900 deaths from a previous attack by the Lou Nuer tribe on the Murle, who are now joining the Yau Yau rebellion. South Sudan alleges that Sudan is supporting the militia, a claim that Sudan denies.
