“We suspect FDLR or their allies carried out a surprise attack on our (M23) positions in Kitchanga. Our men fought bravely against these genocidaires until they were repulsed,” a source who preferred anonymity told Chimpreports by telephone.

The attack comes against the backdrop of the signing ceremony of the “Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the region” in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Sunday.

The ceremony was attended by Uganda Vice President Edward Ssekandi, Tanzania’s Jakaya Kikwete, DRC Leader Joseph Kabila, South Sudan’s Salva Kiir and Angola’s Eduardo Dos Santos among others.

The Framework provides for non interference in the internal affairs of neighbouring countries; to neither tolerate nor provide assistance or support of any kind to armed groups and to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of neighbouring countries.

The FDLR attack could spark a backlash from M23 which had laid down weapons to engage in peace talks with the DRC government in Kampala.
