The spokesman pointed out that the armed forces worked in various ways to cease fire and secure the situation in areas of contact with the armed movements.
He pointed out that the army provided good intentions to achieve peace by releasing 21 war prisoners from Abdel Wahed Nour’s Movement last Saturday.
“However, all these efforts were not taken into consideration and were met with steps reflecting a hostile spirit that is incompatible with the aspirations and wishes of the Sudanese people.”

“We affirm the ability of the armed forces to respond strongly to violations committed against its forces, whatever their size or timing, and the vigilance of their personnel will miss the opportunity to aggression in all its forms.”
