In the middle of December 2013 South Sudan descended into violent conflict triggered by disagreements within the ruling SPLM party. The conflict which started in Juba on the night of 15 December between Presidential guards loyal to President Kiir and factions loyal to former Vice President Riek Machar resulted in mass killing of both armed Nuer and unarmed Nuer civilians mistakenly thought to be Riek loyalists. Within a week the fighting escalated to other parts of South Sudan especially in Bor, Bentiu, Akobo where Nuer killed Dinka civilians in revenge for the killings in Juba.
Way back from Panrieng: account of destruction in Panrieng Count, Unity state
When the fighting broke out in Juba on the 15th December 2013, people of Panaruu in Unity state were not aware that this conflict is going to turn into a tribal war between the Dinka and the Nuer tribes. But, very unfortunately on the 18th of December 2013 defected SPLA forces started to shoot their colleagues in Bonki boma in Aliiny payam. The fighting between the SPLA forced escalated to include civilians in the area.
SUDO(UK) has received a number of reports of killings of civilians in different parts of South Sudan. A number of human rights defenders have been forced to try and find refuge with the UN or outside the country. There is an urgent need for the international community to exert pressure on the different actors to end the violence as well as to provide humanitarian assistance to the large numbers who have been displaced.
South Darfur/ Manawashi market (Near Nyala)
Once more unrestrained fighting with kalashnikovs between government military and paramilitary forces has caused death, injuries and destruction to civilians.
Apparently one soldier in the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and a member of the Popular Defence Force (PDF) had a quarrel in Manawashi over a mobile phone battery. Each one returned to his unit and later two battalions, one from each side, clashed freely shooting with Kalashnikovs inside Manawashi market.
