Sudan’s President, Omar Al-Basheer, has vowed to eradicate the Darfur rebels and Kurdufan and the Blue Nile ones before the end of this year, promising to go after those who entered Libya.

In a speech at a conference for the Popular Defense (PDF), which supports the army in military operations, Al-Basheer said that the fighters remaining from the Sudan Liberation Movement, led by Minni Minnawi, are fighting with Khalifa Hafter in Libya, saying that he will go after them.

This speech comes to reinforce what Al-Kufra revolutionaries mentioned earlier that Hafter has used Sudanese mercenaries from the SLM in his war on Benghazi and is using them now in Al-Kufra.

While, on the other hand, Minni Minnawi had refuted in Sudanese newspapers his connection with any incidents in Al-Kufra saying that his fighters are still within Sudanese territories.
