In North Kivu, six people were killed this Wednesday, September 14 in a new attack attributed to ADF rebels on the Mbau-Kamango road, in Beni territory.

The victims are an officer of the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (FARDC), a teacher from a higher institution in the Watalinga sector and four rebels.

The spokesperson for the Sokola 1 Grand-Nord operational sector, Captain Anthony Mwalushayi, indicates that it is a FARDC vehicle which fell into an ambush in the area by Ugandan ADF rebels.

“It was around 12:40 p.m. Walatinga time (10:40 a.m. UT), where the military vehicle coming from the city of Beni to join its unit located at kilometer point 24 was ambushed by ADF/MTN terrorists at the level of the kilometer point 17”, explains the captain of the Congolese armed forces.

After an exchange of fire between the loyalist army and the terrorists of the democratic forces and allies ADF/MTN, the balance sheet reports on the Republican army side of six dead, including an officer responsible for the logistics of the 3402nd regiment.

On the terrorist side of ADF/MTN, the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo succeeded in neutralizing four ADF/MTN terrorists and recovered a weapon of war.
