Arnu Ngutulu Lodi, spokesman for the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) announced in a statement today that “raids by government forces on civilians are not limited to ground attacks”.

Lodi told Radio Dabanga that several areas and villages in the Nuba Mountains in South Kordofan were subject of aerial bombardments over the past three days.

“Sabat, Tujur, and Lumbry in Dalami county were targeted with seven bombs on Saturday, nine on Sunday, and 18 on Tuesday.

“Two schoolgirls, Alnaya Abdalla Altaj (12), and Aisha Abdalla Altaj (14) were wounded, as well as Samir Saeed (46).

“On Monday, an Antonov bombed civilians in the Alabu area in Umdorain County, killing Jibril Tia. One-year-old baby Zakaria Riyad, lost a leg, while Risala Kafi Tia (30), Sumia Madani Kuku (30) and Bashir Osman (18) were also injured,” Lodi concluded.

Mubarak Ardol, another spokesman for the SPLM-N, claimed last month that the government is making extensive preparations for a major offensive in South Kordofan. Army and militia forces were enforced on four axes: Abbasiya-Rashad in the north-eastern part of the state, the Kheirasana-Terouhi-Fama-Buheirat El Abyad axe in the southwest, the thee area of the state capital Kadugli, and the Talodi axe, he said.
