China helping out to bring peace to South Sudan

China to deploy 700 peacekeepers to South Sudan

23 December 2014 9:32


China reportedly plans to deploy a total of 700 troops to South Sudan as part of a UN peacekeeping mission in the conflict-torn African country.

According to China’s Xinhua News Agency, 180 of the peacekeepers will be sent to the country in January and the rest are to be deployed there in March.

The report added that the Chinese force will be equipped with drones, armored infantry carriers, anti-tank missiles, mortars and other weapons for self-defense purposes.

The infantry battalion includes 121 officers and 579 soldiers, among them female troops.

More than 2,000 Chinese soldiers have been deployed to conflict zones around the world as peacekeepers.

South Sudan plunged into violence in December 2013, when fighting erupted between troops loyal to President Salva Kiir and defectors led by his former deputy, Riek Machar, around the capital Juba.

The conflict soon turned into an all-out war between the army and the defectors, with the violence taking on an ethnic dimension that pitted the president’s Dinka tribe against Machar’s Nuer ethnic group.

The clashes have left tens of thousands of South Sudanese dead and forced around 1.9 million people to flee their homes in the world’s youngest nation.

South Sudan gained independence in July 2011 after its people overwhelmingly voted in a referendum for a split from the North.

Sudan back on US-Israel radar

The US State Department and Jewish NGOs trained and funded Arab Spring protests have hit Khartoum and Omdurman behind the smokescreen of government’s decision to cut fuel subsidies.
On September 27, Sudanese interior minister Ibrahim Mahmoud speaking at a radio talk show said that police has arrested more than 600 anti-government protestors – and 100 of them are being investigated for burning and looting public and private properties. Khartoum sources have claimed the death of 37 people including a policeman.Last week, several Jewish groups urged the Hotel Association and its New York members to deny accomodation to Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir during his visit to the attend the UN General Assembly in New York. These Evildoers have been running similar campaign against former Iranian president Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad between 2006-2012.

The US-Israeli problem with Sudan is not just the country’s huge oil reserves, but its strategic location along the Nile waterway. The Jewish supremacy over Nile basin was acknowledged by Zionist leaders even before the creation of the Zionist entity by the western colonial powers. Sudan along with South Sudan, Egypt, Ethiopia, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda, depends on the Nile as their water source. Khartoum still remains the only regime which doesn’t recognize the Jewish occupation of Palestine. Therefore, the Zionist entity and its western stooges have to continue covert operation to bring a pro-Israel regime change in Khartoum even after the break-up of the country.

On September 28, 2013, Tony Cartalucci, posted an investigative post, entitled, ‘Old Dog, Old Trick: US, Saudis, Qatar attempt “Arab Spring” retread in Sudan‘. Cartalucc claims that the protests are smokescreen for unfolding US-Saudi-Qatar backed violence seeking regime change in Sudan. Let us not foget that in the past US-Saudi-Qatar were also responsible for bringing regime changes in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Libya. According to the US Jewish scholar, Gabriel M. Scheinmann, Israel has come out as the winner of Arab Spring.

The West’s interest in Sudan is not causal or spontaneous. It was listed as one of several Muslim nation-states the US had intended to violently overthrow and subjugate as a pro-USrael client regime since at least 2001, revealed in a speech given by US Army General Wesley Clark in 2007.

UNSC Draft Resolution on AU Roadmap in Sudan

Local Editor

United Nations Security Council meetingThe United Nations Security Council (UNSC) started deliberating on a draft resolution introduced by the United States calling for implementation of the African Union (AU) roadmap aimed at resolving disputes between north and south Sudan.

The plan was adopted by the AU Peace and Security Council (PSC) during its meeting this week that discussed the fallout from the occupation of Heglig area by South Sudan before Sudan army managed to take it back a week ago, Sudan Tribune reported Friday.

The Pan-African body called for immediate return to negotiations, cessation of hostilities, activation of border monitoring mechanism, ending support to rebels and withdrawal of both countries’ troops inside the borders including from Abyei among other things.

It gave a three month deadline to reach an agreement on post-independence issues namely oil, Abyei, borders and citizenship.

Sudan and South SudanThe UNSC resolution proposed to be under Chapter VII threatens sanctions on Sudan and South Sudan if found violating the terms of the AU plan.

U.S. ambassador to the UN Susan Rice suggested that there is some resistance among UNSC members which may result in the resolution taking some time before being considered for vote.

“We are members of the African Union. We respect everything that comes from the African Union. That doesn’t mean anything comes from the African Union or African Peace and Security Council being or to be exploited by certain members here in the Security Council and try to for their own sake,” Sudan’s UN ambassador Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman told reporters today.

The ambassador expressed reservations and appeared critical of using Chapter VII of the UN charter in the resolution saying that Sudan’s understanding is that it should be directed to the “aggressor”.

Sudanese officials have given conflicting statements on their willingness to resume negotiations with Juba following the Heglig battles.

Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir ruled out any talks and said that South Sudan only understands the “language of the gun”.

“We will not negotiate with the South’s government, because they don’t understand anything but the language of the gun and ammunition,” Bashir told Sudanese troops in Heglig earlier this week.

But Bashir’s foreign minister Ali Karti later said that negotiations could be restarted on security issues only and particularly on Juba’s alleged support to rebels fighting to topple regime in Khartoum.

Juba strongly denies supporting Sudanese rebels and accuses Khartoum of aiding insurgent in its territories.

S. Sudan Withdraws from Heglig, Damages Revealed

Local Editor

Heglig area of Sudan occupied by South SudanSouth Sudan’s army has completed its withdrawal from Sudan’s main Heglig oil field, the military said Sunday, but condemned the north for bombing the area.

Juba seized the flashpoint oil hub on April 10, claiming that Khartoum was using Heglig as a base to attack the South’s oil-producing Unity State.

Although South Sudan disputes it, Heglig is internationally regarded as part of Sudan.

The South’s Sudanese Peoples Liberation Army (SPLA) “completed its withdrawal from Heglig yesterday,” the South’s military spokesman Philip Aguer told AFP.

However, Sudan’s presidential assistant, Nafie Ali Nafie, has accused South Sudan’s government of deceiving its people by saying that its army withdrew from Heglig, Sudan Tribune reported.

Sudan Presidential Assistant Nafie Ali NafieAddressing a mobilization rally of Sufi groups in the capital Khartoum on Saturday, Nafie claimed that Juba had in fact pleaded with international mediators to stop Khartoum from shelling SPLA troops inside Heglig.

UN chief Ban Ki-Moon branded Juba’s 10-day occupation of the region illegal and US President Barack Obama has said the long-time rivals must negotiate to avoid further military escalation along their contested and volatile border.
For his part, The Sudanese First Vice President Ali Osman Taha ruled out quick return to negotiations with S. Sudan, suggesting that negotiations with the South are pointless.

In an interview with Blue Nile TV, Taha also accused Juba of launching economic war on Sudan when SPLA damaged the operating system software of Heglig oil facilities and set the main controls of the plants on fire. The details and scope of the destruction will be revealed in the coming hours, he added.

Sudanese Vice President Ali Osman Taha visiting a wounded man during the clashes in HegligSudan state TV aired footages from inside Heglig showing major destruction in the town while oil facilities were still burning and efforts were made to put out the fires.

The Washington-based Satellite Sentinel Project (SSP) said in a statement today that new satellite imagery revealed that a key part of the pipeline infrastructure was destroyed.

“The damage appears to be so severe, and in such a critical part of the oil infrastructure, that it would likely stop oil flow in the area,” SSP’s statement read.

The Heglig violence was the worst since South Sudan won independence in July after a 1983-2005 civil war in which about two million people died.

Tensions have gradually mounted over the disputed border and other unresolved issues.

Fighting rages after South Sudan captures Sudan oil field

Published Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Fierce fighting raged Wednesday as warplanes bombed contested regions on the border between Sudan and South Sudan, the second day of violence in the latest round of bloody clashes.

South Sudanese troops held positions in the disputed Heglig oil field, seized on Tuesday from Khartoum’s troops, said Mac Paul, deputy director of South Sudan’s military intelligence.

“SPLA (the South Sudan armed forces) are holding their positions in Heglig and the bombardment continues… there was bombing all night long,” Paul told AFP in the capital of South Sudan’s frontline Unity state.

Several airstrikes by Sudanese Antonov airplanes and fighter jets were reported at least 50km deep inside South Sudan, although officials had no immediate reports of casualties.

On Tuesday, an AFP correspondent on the South Sudanese frontline heard heavy artillery shelling and multiple airstrikes lasting for around an hour, with one bomb dropped by aircraft landing less than a kilometer away.

Large Southern Sudanese troops movements were seen close to the frontier, with convoys heading up to the frontline near Heglig, an area Juba claims but which makes up a key part of Khartoum’s oil production.

The clashes follow border fighting that erupted last month between the two neighbors, the most serious unrest since Juba’s independence last July, and which prompted international fears of a return to all-out war.

Khartoum has vowed to react with “all means” against a three-pronged attack it said South Sudanese forces had launched against Sudan’s South Kordofan state, including the Heglig oil field.

A statement on Khartoum’s official SUNA news agency warned of “destruction” in South Sudan.
Khartoum also claimed Southern forces were backed by rebel groups. It did not specify which rebels but the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) has been battling government troops in South Kordofan since June.

Eye on The Enemy:’’Israel’’ Welcomes Dialogue with Salafis, Hails South Sudanese President


Local Editor
Former Chief of Mossad: We welcome a dialogue with the Salafis
“Israeli” Radio
‘Former chief of Mossad, MK of the Labor Party, Danny Yatom declared that “the situation in Egypt is disturbing, though those in power in Cairo were trying to maintain peace, but there are big concerns that they might not succeed, because we know that the weakness of the central authority in Egypt is increasing.”

“The unrest in Cairo shows the lack of control by the Egyptian authorities that should enforce order and security in the Sinai, and as a result, Egypt is losing control of the peninsula, and anyone who wishes to execute a sabotaging operation against “Israel” will feel freer and will have lots of options to do so,” he stated. Yatom added that “the growing Islamic movements and Islamic extremists in Egypt, mainly the Salafis, requires admitting that they do not reject dialogue with us, and certainly we must have a dialogue with all the parties in power in Egypt without any exception in order to have an effect on them, even slightly, depending on the way in which they will address to us.”

“However, the Salafis’ ideology is more extreme than the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood, for when it comes to “Israel” they do not want to see it on the map, but if they changed their minds, on the contrary, we’ll feel happy to talk with them,” he confirmed.

“The tension in Egypt is festering between two parties, the first is led by the army, which is the secular movement; and the second is led by those who claim that the army stole the revolution from them, and that it’s an extension of “Mubarak’s regime,” Yatom mentioned.

Moreover, some people alleged that the Islamists of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafi “al-Nour” Party have made a deal behind the scenes with the army, whereby in the event of winning the elections they will formulate the parliament and the future government, and in exchange the army will relinquish its office and will gain capacities that affects the political course in Egypt.

“I don’t know if this is true, yet I assume that these two parties will eventually clash; the army representing secularism and Muslim Brotherhood-Salafis representing the most extreme Islamic ideology, then a clash might take place. We should follow-up on the events of Egypt very closely,” he said.

South Sudanese President: “Israel” is the Role Model
“Israeli” International Channel
The South Sudanese president, Salva Ki’ir expressed his excitement to set foot on the Promised Land, and said that the establishment of two states, “Israel” and South Sudan, is very similar, pointing to the great support provided by “Israel” to establish their state, and adding that he views “Israel” as a role model state.

It is an honor for me to sit down with Peres, for he is known by the successive generations. The history of your country has very much contributed in making your state very well-known around the world,” Ki’ir said.

An agreement was reached between South Sudan and “Israel” to send an “Israeli” delegation to South Sudan to inspect the situation there in order to develop plans to provide possible “Israeli” assistance to establish the infrastructure there and develop the country.

It is worth mentioning that the State of South Sudan, which received recognition
\by the United Nations as an independent country around six months ago, is of a Christian majority.

The consolidation of relations between “Israel” and this country falls within the “Israeli” efforts to form a front of Christian countries in Africa to defy the Islamic extremists whose strength is boosting in the north of this the continent.

South Sudan Approved to Absorb African Infiltrators to “Israel”
Walla news portal
Knesset Member Danny Danon (Likud), who heads the Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs, said that “the state of South Sudan is ready to absorb 10 thousand infiltrators in “Israel””. Danon added that South Sudan has asked “Israel” to assist them in areas of infrastructure, communications and agriculture.

Danon revealed that South Sudan has agreed to absorb the African refugees who entered “Israel” from other African countries such as Eritrea, adding that since the establishment of the State of South Sudan half a year ago, 100 to 400 refugees southern Sudanese left “Israel” and returned to their homeland in exchange for $ 500 per capita paid by “Israel”.

He pointed out that “the readiness of South Sudan will help in reducing the number of African infiltrators to “Israel”, which according to the official data are nearly fifty thousand, many of whom came from Eritrea.

Danon described the approval of South Sudan to absorb infiltrators as a “great achievement”. He suggested that “the prison camp built to detain African refugees in “Israel” should be built in Africa instead, and “Israel” should grant a financial compensation to the State that agrees to set up the camp within its territory.”

He considered that “the cost of building such a prison camp in Africa is cheaper, plus it would pass a message to the infiltrators that, in all cases, they will not be able to stay in “Israel”, and Prime Minister (Netanyahu) seconded this idea but haven’t yet implemented it.”

On South Sudan, Danon stated, “I think the new nation should be strengthened, which is a Christian minority within a Muslim majority. Strengthening the cooperation with them on infiltrators benefits both sides; on one hand, they gain an economic advantage and on the other hand, “Israel” reduces the infiltrators into its territory”.
