One man was killed and two were wounded by missiles near the South Kordofan capital Kadugli last week.

In a press statement on Monday, Arnu Ngutulu Lodi, the military spokesman for the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), reported that on Thursday El Ghaba El Nimir (75) was killed by a missile launched by Sudanese long-range artillery from Kadugli on Um Serdiba.

Lodi added that at 5 am on Friday, an Antinov dropped six bombs on Um Serdiba, and another two on the area of El Teis in Buram locality. No casualties were reported.

He added that El Tahir Khamis (7) and his teacher, Ahmed Azrag, sustained injuries when the area of Korongo was shelled from Kadugli on Friday.

On Monday, Brig. Ahmed Khalifa El Shami, the spokesman for the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF), announced that army troops “liberated the strategic areas of Mardis, El Labo, Kuton, Agab, Karkaia, and Biera after defeating the outlaws in a number of South Kordofan axes” last week.

The rebel spokesman reported in a brief statement today that fighting is ongoing in the area of Agab and Karkaia, in Reif Asharqi locality, northeast of Kadugli.
