The evening of Monday, [June 21st], GoS [Gov’t of Sudan] sustained another defeat at the hands of JEM at Umkatkout, 110km south-east of El Fashir and 90km from Nyala. This defeat of SAF [Sudan Alliance Forces] is the second in 24 hours and ninth in six weeks.

The army fled the battlefield after what could hardly be called a battle and left behind a large amount of military hardware and numerous injured and captured soldiers.

These successive defeats point to a collapse of the Sudanese Army and reflect clearly unwillingness of the soldiers to fight for Al Bashir’s fat cats in Khartoum.

Long live our struggle for justice

Lt. General Ali Alwafi
Military Spokesperson
