Washington, DC, May 12, 2014 (SSNA) — Alliance for South Sudanese in Diaspora (ASSD) condemns in the strongest term possible the deliberate and targeted killing of unarmed Nuer Military Trainees and their families in Mapel Military Training Base on Friday, April 24, 2014 and urge locals and UNMISS to rescue those wondering in the bushes of Mapel and surrounding areas. ASSD request the relocation all Nuer ethnic IDPS from Government controlled areas since Kiir led government failed to protect them. ASSD is gravely concern by the unbearable human atrocities and call upon the International Community to speed up the relocation process of the IDPs before it is too late.

We urge the Western Bhar El Ghazal State Authorities and locals to provide safe path for innocent Nuer ethnic university students, women and children throughout the state. ASSD strongly condemns and urge Kiir led government to stop all ethnically related targeted killing of the Nuer ethnic group. The consequences of targeted killing of innocent civilians or any ethnically related killings will only deepening this crisis and will not serve anyone’s interest.

ASSD call on the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), United Nations, United States of America, African Union, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Norway, friends of South Sudan, and religious leaders to intervene and ensure that the signed cessation of hostilities agreement is immediately implemented by the warring parties .

ASSD call on all foreign forces in South Sudan to withdraw and stop aiding and carrying out further genocidal acts in South Sudan.
