Cabinda in a state of war with six more dead, including two civilians

The Cabinda State Liberation Front (FLEC) claimed the death of three soldiers from the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), in clashes in that enclave, which also killed one of its soldiers and two civilians.

In a “war announcement”, made public today, FLEC describes that the clashes took place on Thursday morning, in the village of Tando-Limbo, on the road between Inhuca and Massabi.

The conflicts happened because the Cabinda Armed Forces (FAC) were attacked by an FAA patrol “in total violation of the ceasefire appeal launched by the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres”.

“An FAC soldier lost his life during the aggression of the Angolan Armed Forces, who lost three men. During the fighting, two women from the neighboring village were killed by the fire of the Angolan military, ”reads the statement.

In the document, signed by General António do Rosário Luciano, spokesman for the General Staff of the FAC, FLEC states that “it does not yield to the incessant bloody provocations of the FAA”, stating that “it maintains the ceasefire in respect of the appeal António Guterres ”.
