South Sudan rebels claim capture of two areas in Kajo-keji County
South Sudan’s rebels loyal to former first vice president Riek Machar announced Friday the capture of Bamurie and Jalie areas in Kajo-keji County after allegedly clashing with government troops.
SPLA-IO deputy military spokesperson Paul Lam Gabriel told Radio Tamazuj on Friday that their forces managed to capture Bamurie and Jalie areas and killed dozens of government soldiers.
He admitted that three soldiers were killed and five others were wounded from their side.
Radio Tamazuj could not independently verify Lam’s claim.
