M23 Vow To Resume Attacks After DRC Government Fail to Honor Ceasefire Agreement.

Barely a week after M23 honoured the Luanda agreement in a peaceful gesture where they handed over the town of Kibumba to the East African regional forces, a new statement from the group has created a new wave of uncertainty. This is after the group through their official channels made it clear their intentions to resume attacks to government troops whom they claim continue to attack their regions and which they were preparing to hand over to the EACRF.

The Congolese army dismissed the withdrawal as a “sham” aimed at reinforcing the group’s positions elsewhere. "The army continue to fight against armed groups in the country and will not relent in it's endeavors to bring peace into the country," stated an army general in a document seen by AFP news editor.

The rebels promised to stand firm and defend the civilians whom they identified as key targets by the army group. In what is seen as a new phase of fighting in the war torn nation.
