We’ve Lost Count of the Dead in South Sudan
- by Lizabeth Paulat November 22, 2014
There have been so many devastating news stories it’s hard to keep up these days. We’ve had Ebola, we’ve had hostages killed by ISIS, we’ve had Ukraine and now I’m here to present another to you: South Sudan.
I know, it’s almost unfair to give you another piece on just how many wrongs are out there, but South Sudan is in crisis, and you should know that. You should know a humanitarian disaster is occurring where children in refugee camps are starving to death. You should know that fighting hasn’t stopped. You should know that tribal factions held by President Salva Kiir and the former Vice President Riek Machar have threatened hundreds of thousands of lives and that the word ‘genocide’ has been brought up more than once.
It is a war that is so heavily entrenched and difficult to monitor that according to an article by Business Day Live, “missing from the conflict is a clear death toll, as nobody — not even United Nations peacekeepers — has been keeping count. The International Crisis Group (ICG), a conflict think-tank, estimates at least 50,000 people have already died but it admits the true figure could even be double that.”
SAS quad bike squads kill up to 8 jihadis each day… as allies prepare to wipe IS off the map: Daring raids by UK Special Forces leave 200 enemy dead in just four weeks
- Targets are identified by drones operated by SAS soldiers
- Who are then dropped into IS territory by helicopter to stage attacks
- The surprise ambushes are said to be ‘putting the fear of God into IS’
- The raids are attacking IS’s main supply routes across western Iraq
SAS troops with sniper rifles and heavy machine guns have killed hundreds of Islamic State extremists in a series of deadly quad-bike ambushes inside Iraq, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
Defence sources indicated last night that soldiers from the elite fighting unit have eliminated ‘up to eight terrorists per day’ in the daring raids, carried out during the past four weeks.
Until now, it had been acknowledged only that the SAS was operating in a reconnaissance role in Iraq and was not involved in combat. But The Mail on Sunday has learned that small groups of soldiers are being dropped into IS territory in RAF Chinook helicopters – to take on the enemy.
