“All flights from the Northern Bahr al Ghazal state capital of Aweil on Thursday including commercial airlines such as South Supreme were filled by officers rushing back to Juba,” according to a witness at the airstrip.

More details show that other troops have moved by road and all are a heading to Bor town in Jonglei state.

After they have converged in Juba, the troops will be sent to Bor which rebels have vowed to take back from government forces.

Meanwhile, the most important parts of the Jonglei state capital are said to be under General Gadet although he lost Bor town to SPLA last week.

Speaking to South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) Gen Gadet too warned,”If Kiir wants to attack my forces, let him do it, but, I assure you he will regret and not only that, he will soon get a lesson”.

Maj Gen. James Koang has also warned that he is going to teach Kiir’s forces a lesson they shall never forget.

At the same time, the United Nations has started a heavy reinforcement of its troops in the “dangerous” town Bor, the capital of Jonglei state which is one of the fiercest grounds in the one week fight in South Sudan.

“It’s been difficult but we have been reinforcing the base. We have been literally digging and reinforcing the position for the last 36 hours.

We will not allow a repeat of what has already struck us in Akobo,” said UN Assistant Secretary General in South Sudan, Toby Lanzer, who is
currently in Bor, in a UN-produced video.
