South Sudan rebels have accused government forces of attacking their positions just hours after President Kiir and Dr Riek Machar agreed to end hostilities in the war-torn country.

The rebels’ chief negotiator, buy more about Gen Taban Deng Gai said in a letter to the Chairperson of IGAD Special Envoys, pharm Amb. Seyuom Mesfin on Saturday that, drug “the Movement has again launched fresh attacks on our positions in Unity State this morning.”

Deng further said, “On November 8, 2014, GRSS, JEM and SPLA-North forces advanced from Bentiu and Pariang and attacked our positions at Tor and Hofra in Unity State.”

“SPLM/SPLA condemns in the strongest terms possible the continuous aggression and violation of Cessation of Hostilities Agreement by the regime in Juba and calls on IGAD, Troika and the United Nations to condemn these unproved attacks by GRSS forces and investigate these aggressions.”

By Sunday morning, SPLA were yet to make comments on the latest disturbing development.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn steered intensive talks that helped South Sudan’s political leaders to commit to an unconditional and complete end to hostilities on Saturday.

The talks in Addis Ababa – that commenced on Thursday running through Friday into the wee hours of Saturday morning – culminated in resolutions that signalled an end to the South Sudan conflict.

The Government of South Sudan led by President Salva and the SPLM/A (in opposition) under former Vice President Riak Machar also agreed to immediately stop recruitment and mobilization of civilians.

And a communique issued at the end of the 28th Extra-ordinary Summit of IGAD Heads of State and Government attended by President Yoweri Museveni (Uganda), Omar Bashir (Sudan), Ismail Guelleh (Djibouti) and Hassan Sheikh Mohamud (Somalia) warned South Sudan warring parties that any violation of the cessation of hostilities agreement would invite stern interventions to protect life and restore peace and stability.

These will include freeze of assets owned by the violators, travel bans and blocking supply of materials that could be used in war.

The IGAD leaders called on the African Union’s Peace and Security Council (PSC), the United Nations Security Council and the entire international community to support the enforcement of the Addis Ababa resolutions.

IGAD, however, accepted the request by parties to the South Sudan conflict to be allowed a further 15 days to iron out the remaining outstanding issues.
