JUBA, 11 October 2016 [Gurtong]-Yasmina Bouziane, the UN Mission
Principal Public Information Officer, said the UN Mission’s access
continues to be denied.

“The Mission is alarmed that deadly attacks on civilians and looting
of private property on 11th and 13th September, and the displacement
of several thousand others from nearby Lainya County since mid-July,
have affected over 100,000 South Sudanese in Yei, despite their
civilian non-combatant status” said Yasmina Bouziane.

He said the Mission has received disturbing reports of horrific
violence perpetrated against innocent and vulnerable civilians,
including women and infants.

“UNMISS is also concerned at the humanitarian crisis unfolding, with a
population unable to move freely, tend to their farms, or feed
themselves, due to various restrictions on their movement, and the
inability of humanitarian partners to freely access the area and
provide much needed assistance” said Yasmina.

UNMISS is now calling upon all parties to refrain from further
violence, ensure that commanders control their forces and protect
civilians and their property and to cease all hostilities.

“We also call on the authorities to grant immediate and unfettered
access to UNMISS and humanitarian actors, and to work together for the
good of the people of this country. We further reiterate that there
can be no military solution to the situation in South Sudan” Yasmina
