A Military Statement from JEM

JEM forces shot down a Mig29 Jet belonging to GoS [Government of Sudan] near Majrur, 80k North-East of Al Obeid, capital of the State of North Kordofan. The incident took place today, November 8th at 4pm local time. The downed jet fighter participated in aerial bombardment which has been going on since the government lot to JEM in the area November 5th. Intense aerial attacks have so far failed to halt steady advancement of JEM towards its target.

News of government loss of its advanced plane came hours after JEM released names of 17 POWs captured a day before at Kornoi-Boba battle in North Darfur. Names of POWS released in Arabic will be made available to English readers in a separate communiqué.

Long live our struggle for justice and equality.

Lt. General Ali Alwafi
Military Spokesperson
