South Sudan army SPLA/Juba faction yesterday attacked cantonment site of SPLA-IO, killing 7 children and wounded several others around Katiba village in Bhari land, 20 Miles far West from Mundiri County.
They have been shelling heavily at SPLA/IO defensive positions; random killing, looting and burning downs of civilians’ houses are being used by the soldiers as strategized war campaign against the local population.
The Government forces have increased their ground attack for the last 4 days on SPLA-IO in Western Equatoria State; reinforcements from Yei and Maridi with heavy guns and artillery were received by government soldiers to terrorize the population around.
The same situation is happening in Lanyi, East of Mundiri.
Finally, but not the lease, SPLA is on move along the road heading to Mundari area. We strongly condemned this unethical behaviors and aggression against the civil populations and this would jeopardize the implementation of the signed agreement.
