The Sudanese Army on Wednesday denied accusations by some international organizations in Khartoum of launching air strikes against rebel positions in South Kordofan State, reported official SUNA news agency.

"The claims by some foreign organizations on bombing south Kordofan State are untrue," SUNA quoted Al-Sawarmy Khalid Saad, Spokesman of Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF), as saying.

"The security situation is calm and the SAF is firmly committed to the unilateral ceasefire recently declared by the President of the Republic in South Kordofan," he added.

Saad further accused the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) of working to utilize the ceasefire decision to launch attacks against government positions in the state.

"The Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) has not welcomed the ceasefire declared by the President of the Republic. Instead they have attempted to infiltrate into the eastern areas of the Numba Mountains, but the SAF confronted and repulsed them," he said.

Sudanese president declared earlier this month a unilateral two- week ceasefire in South Kordofan State.

Some foreign organizations on Tuesday accused the Sudanese army of launching indiscriminating bombing in South Kordofan State.

South Kordofan State, which is on the north-south Sudan border, has been witnessing, since June 5, armed clashes between the Sudanese army and local rebels who used to belong to the SPLA.
