A South Sudan government army general has been shot dead in the battle for the control of oil-rich town Bentiu, prescription http://colegiogimnasioamericano.edu.co/plugins/jsnimageshow/themeclassic/themeclassic/tables/themeclassic.php the capital of Unity State.

Brig. Gen. Ruai Kerbino Tap, order http://corpuschristimiami.com/wp-includes/class-wp-image-editor-gd.php who was commonly known by his nickname Tut Gooka Kie, was felled by a heavy machine gun bullet from the SPLA-IO rebels under the leadership of former Vice President Dr. Riek Machar.

The bullet blasted his legs, leading to a compound fracture and serious bleeding.

He was immediately airlifted to the capital Juba, a distance of about 1,100kms before being booked at Juba Medical Complex on Monday evening.

Sources in the SPLA told ChimpReports that Brig. Ruai died a few hours later.

“It’s sad, we have lost him. We tried the best to save him but couldn’t realize our goal because of the amount of blood he had lost,” said an SPLA source in Juba.

Brig. Ruai was commanding an SPLA reinforcement team from 3rd Division based in Aweil.

The rebel forces had attacked and overwhelmed government forces under Gen. Taib Gatluak who made an emergency communication to Bilpam, the SPLA headquarters in the capital Juba.

Brig. Ruai was contacted by Bilpam about the situation in Bentiu town, not far from his command post and instructed to reinforce the overwhelmed government forces.

The rebels, who had erected a strategic forward ambush point in the outskirts of Bentiu town, however forestalled his mission when they attacked his group with an estimated force of 200 to 400 combatants.

The rebel forces that could have intercepted the communication in regard to the SPLA reinforcement plan, precisely started with the commander before spraying bullet on others.

Sources from both sides say government lost about 50 soldiers in the battle of Bentiu on Monday.

The Guit county commissioner, Mr. Peter Kwai was also shot before the rebels approached the town.

The control of the town was by last evening being shared by the government and rebel forces. Bentiu control had changed hands three times, leading to a colossal loss of human lives.
