Alliance for South Sudanese in Diaspora (ASSD) Condemns the Targeted killing of Innocent Nuer Civilians house at the UNMISS Compound in Bor Town and Urge UNMISS to immediately relocate all IDPS to Safe Areas
Alliance for South Sudanese in Diaspora (ASSD) condemns in the strongest term possible the deliberate and targeted killing of innocent Nuer Civilians housed in the UNMISS Compound in Bor Town and urge UNMISS to immediately relocate all Nuer ethnic IDPS from Government controlled areas since the UNMISS protection force cannot adequately protect them. ASSD urge the International Community to do more in speeding up the relocation process of those IDPs before it is too late.
ASSD specifically urge elements of the Dinka Bor youths not to drag this war to their own community since the genesis of this conflict was a political one. ASSD strongly condemns and urge Dinka Bor politicians in the Kiir led government not to localize national issues where innocent youths of Bor Dinka ethnic background are being deliberately misled to attack their long time neighbors, the Nuer. The consequences of targeted killing of innocent Nuer civilians or any ethnically related killings does not and will not serve anyone’s interest but widen this conflict where all will be fair game.
ASSD leadership would like to request the UN, United States of America, African Union, Canada, United Kingdom, and Norway to immediately intervene and ensure that the signed cessation of hostility agreement is implemented by the South Sudanese warring parties.
ASSD urge Ugandan President Yoweri Musseveni and foreign forces in South Sudan to with draw immediately and stop meddling in South Sudan’s internal affairs.
