Fresh clashes have reportedly erupted out near South’s Sudan second largest city of Malakal on Tuesday.
According to United Nations officials confirmed of the clashes saying they are the latest turn in the struggle for the capital of the oil-producing Upper Nile region. Huge number of civilians have deserted the area, fleeing the fighting.
The rebels had been trying to provoke the SPLA all this time because the SPLA has been given instruction not to wage offensives against the rebel forces, military spokesman Col. Santo Domic Chol noted.
"This is in line with the call by the president for the national dialogue," he added, referring to a presidential directive on dealing with the rebels.
Sporadic fighting between the rebels and government forces broke out in Malakal a week ago, forcing officials to close the airport.
The civil war has driven more than 3 million people from their homes.
