JEM rebels say attack on cities is "imminent"The Sudan Tribune just released an article saying the rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) " would attack very soon the positions of the Sudanese government."
In a press release today, the JEM deputy general commander, Suleiman Sandal, urged the Sudanese to remain away from all military positions in Sudanese cities and to stay at home because "our attack against these cities is imminent."
They have called on the Sudanese soldiers to join the rebel movement adding "you are not our enemies."
It is not clear whether the rebel movement intends to attack the capital Khartoum or other cities. However, Sandal in his statement said "our warning extends to all diplomatic missions and embassies" to take the necessary measures to ensure the safety and security of their employees and properties.
