Terror in South Sudan

Genocide Planned for the Nuba
Al-Jazeera television has broadcast footage of the governor of South Kordofan, the indicted war criminal Ahmed Harun, addressing his soldiers before being deployed to the Nuba Mountains: “You must hand over the place clean… swept, rubbed, crushed. Don’t bring them back alive! We have no space for them!” The broadcast footage then shows an army commander standing near the governor, declare: “Don’t bring them back! Eat them alive!

Refugees Flee into South Sudan
The medical charity, Doctors Without Borders, reports that up to 4,000 people are fleeing into South Sudan, every day, to escape the fighting in Sudan’s Blue Nile Province. They estimate that over 100,000 refugees are already in camps in South Sudan’s Upper Nile State. Over 38,000 Nuba refugees have fled across the border from South Kordofan into South Sudan’s Unity State. Reportedly the Khartoum government has continued aerial bombardment of refugees and blockade of humanitarian aid reaching the Nuba Mountains. Almost a million Nuban are facing starvation conditions.

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…” Proverbs 31:8
