JMEC CHAIRMAN: “THE ONLY OFFENSIVE SOUTH SUDAN NEEDS RIGHT NOW IS A PEACE OFFENSIVE.”

The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) expresses its outrage and strongly condemns the attack on humanitarian workers and the destruction of facilities and equipment at the Maban camp, in Northern Upper Nile.

Attacks on aid workers who diligently offer their services to alleviate the suffering of people of South Sudan, are deeply regrettable and indeed a violation of the Agreement on the Cessation of Hostilities, Protection of Civilians and Humanitarian Access signed in December 2017.

Unfortunately, this is one of the many other attacks that targeted aid workers in the country in the recent past, including killings of personnel.

JMEC calls on the authorities to carry out an independent investigation into the attack and to hold those responsible to account.

ENDS
