For nearly three years, many civilians in Upper Nile have taken refuge in Palouch as it was regarded safe, however, fighting around the oil fields could easily set uncontrollable fire and damage the pipelines which are harmful to the local populations.

Reports from Wadakona, where the two warring factions fought in the last two days, indicate that SPLA has withdrawn from the town towards Malakal.

The recent fighting in Upper Nile is the heaviest and most widely spread fighting in the last three years.

While the troops fought in Wadakona, multiple fighting ranged on around Renk town as rebels penetrate deep into Palouch areas.

While the SPLA-IO underestimates its casualties in this fighting, Juba refuses to release detailed reports on the fighting but blames the rebels for attacking their positions.

Many international organizations including the IOM are shutting down their operations in the region as war continue to escalate.

  • barugahare anthony

    good for war mongors like kiir

    • This was what Machar should have done in the first place, evict Muir from oil field and starving him of any revenue coming from the oil. He would not get any loans from the international community without having control of those fields.

  • Really Fought Of Yeresteday As Gone Worst Indeed

    • Dr:Machar has made it the way his follower needed ,go a head Dr the floor is urs and everything in it.I believe those jce and thier money lover will call upon to come for inauguration in juba.

  • That is the right step in the right direction by Sudan People Liberation Movement in Opposition. Kiir massed up our country resources and he must go now

  • Even if rejoin khartoum,i hunch through your stupidity,then khartoumers would refuse you to make deal with them…….anyway #machar carry on your task!

  • This is what I always tells to Nuer, Collos, and Equator to come together as one people and flight together against our enemy Dinka and their supporters.
