Al-Shami has said that the statement by the South Sudan military spokesperson did not represent the facts and that the Sudanese Army had no reason to carry out such an attack.

The claims voiced by Al-Shami also include allegations that the South Sudanese Army is trying to expel the Nuer population from the east of the country.
