The UN Mission in South Sudan will be deploying 75 peacekeepers from Nepal to end the recent violent outbreak happening in Western Lakes State.
The decision was made after a clash between Gak and Manuer communities left 80 people dead and hundreds injured.
“This fighting must stop. We are urging the communities involved and their leaders to put an end to the violence and come together in reconciliation and peace for the good of their people,” said UNMISS Chief David Shearer.
The UNMISS is also mediating between affected communities, seeking ways through which the clashes can end for good.
