Kiir Adem (11 Nov 2010)

On November 11 and 12, 2010, the village of Kiir Adem in northern Bahr el Ghazal State was reportedly attacked by SAF planes--both MiG fighters and Antonov transport planes--wounding seven SPLA troops and five civilians.  Less than two weeks later, fighter jets allegedly returned for another two-day aerial bombardment that left four SPLA troops wounded. The SPLA moved three anti-aircraft guns to the area, though spokesmen for the southern army told the Associated Press that they would resist responding to alleged attacks by the SAF. (Fick, M.
