Authorities in Chad have reported violent fighting between the country’s rebels and rebels of Sudanese origin in the far north region of Kouri Bougoudi, Chad, like reported by kmaupdates.com.
According to local media reports, the Sudanese rebel movement JEM arrived in the region with a dozen vehicles from southern Libya where they clashed with the Chadian rebel group.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a Chadian army officer said that the Chadian army was supporting the Sudanese rebels in the fighting because they want to cut off the Chadian rebels from their supply lines.
But, Oumar Yaya Hissein, a spokesman for the minister of communication has denied the army was working with the Sudanese rebels.
He noted: “If somebody tells you that the government is dealing with rebels, it’s fake. We deal with legalistic and legal entities. We do not work with the rebels, whether they are from Sudan or from any other country.”
