KHARTOUM, May 26 (Xinhua) -- Sudanese army said Sunday it killed more than 70 rebels of the revolutionary front which attacked Al-Dandaro area in South Kordofan state.

"More than 70 of the rebels were killed and the rest fled the area," said Al-Sawarmy Khalid Saad, Sudanese army spokesman, in a statement.

He added that the armed forces are still chasing the rebels and continuing the combing operations to ensure security and stability in the area.

The South Kordofan and Blue Nile states have been witnessing armed clashes between the Sudanese army and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM)/northern sector since 2011 after South Sudan's independence.

In late April, the revolutionary front alliance, which brings together the SPLM/northern sector and three Darfur rebel movements, including the Justice and Equality Movement/Jibril Ibrahim faction, the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA)/Abdul-Wahid Mohamed Nur faction, and the SLA/Minni Minawi faction, attacked Um Rawaba and Abu Karshula areas in South Kordofan state.
