The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) announced that their combatants took control of the area west of Talodi in the Nuba Mountains on Wednesday morning.

Arno Ngutulu Lodi, the spokesman for the SPLM-N, told Dabanga that its forces took control of Tellet El Nuba village, after they extended their control over the outer posts of the military garrison, west of Talodi. “The government troops fled with their injured to Talodi town.”

 “We seized various machine guns, two long and short wave communication radios, and a solar energy panel,” he added, saying that no losses occurred among the rebel fighters.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Sudan, reported in its bulletin of last week, that at least 145,000 people are expected to be displaced by the fighting between government forces and SPLM-N fighters in the Nuba Mountains.
