The Sudan Liberation Movement under the leadership of Abdelwahid El Nur (SLM-AW) claims its combatants attacked a convoy of army troops and members of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces near Golo in Jebel Marra on Thursday.
“The convoy was on its way to Golo,” Waleed Abakar, the movement’s military spokesman told Radio Dabanga on Friday.
“We managed to kill and wound a number of army troops and militiamen, including three officers. One of them is a colonel named Abuzeid Mohamed Ahmed,” he said. “Our fighters also destroyed three of their Land Cruisers and seized large quantities of weapons and ammunition.”
