, December 2, 2009:
(Juba) – The Sudanese Liberation Movement, Abdelwahid el-Nur faction, claim that they killed 10 SAF soldiers and wounded 4 others in fighting around Jebel Marra and Torran Tora in Western Darfur on Monday.
An SLM spokesman, Abdel Rahman gave his version of the events to Sudan Radio Service on Wednesday.
[Abdal Rahman]: “The SAF moved from Nartiti and Torr and their purpose was to attack the SLM in Torran Tora in Western Darfur. The government and their militias attacked us but the SLM managed to stop them and we caused great damage to the government forces. We captured 5 vehicles from them. There are still dead bodies of SAF soldiers lying in SLM controlled areas now.”
SRS efforts to contact a SAF spokesman to comment on the SLM claim were unsuccessful.
