General Simon Gatwech Dual’s forces have captured a military base hosting forces loyal to First Vice President Machar, according to a military spokesman allied to him.
A week ago, forces loyal to Machar clashed in Magenis, the military base hosting forces belonging to de facto SPLM-IO leader General Simin Gatwech Dual.
Brigadier General William Gatjiath Deng confirmed in a statement that their forces captured Amut, a military belonging to SPLA-IO’s Tiger Battalion loyal to First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar Teny.
The brigadier expressed concern of 2 attacks within a week alone, and urged that they have responded in self defense. The best option was to capture their base and now they are in the bushes scattered.
