SSLA gallant forces attacked SPLA position on Saturday, April, 1st and inflicted a lot of casualties on the enemy. The battle took place at 4:30 am and ended at 8:00am. The SSLA forces conducted reconnaissance after the end of the battle and founded the body of Brig. Gen. Gatwech Gai Marial and other two colonels from Dinka tribe. The SSLA forces recognized Gen. Gatwec Gai because he was a colleague of SSLA operation commanders when they were part of South Sudan Defense Force (SSDF) from 1997 to 2006. Brig. Gen. Gatwec joined the SPLA after Paulino Matip signed Juba Declaration on January, 9, 2006. The names of the other two colonels killed were unknown because they didn’t have ID cards to identify them.
The SSLA operational commanders are now matching towards Bentiu town and will soon liberate it from the tribal government of Salva Kiir. Our forces captured much equipment and destroyed two tanks. One hundred and fifty enemy soldiers have been killed today. Operation Ending Corruption will liberate Unity State soon so that the liberation of Warrap and Lakes States shall commence.
