    That looks pretty terrible, sadly I have no clue what they're saying.

    I'll admit that I'm not well versed with Sudan's civil war and its history, so could you perhaps give me a brief overview or a good source?

    I saw some of these videos a few weeks back, with english text.

    Did some searching and found them again:

    Battle for Daldoka
    SPLA-N captured 5 tanks during a SAF assault of their positions in Daldoka. After two days of fighting, the rebels expelled SAF from the area.



    Frontlines: Dandur
    On April 15th, 2013, the SPLA-N launched an attack to take Dandur, a Sudan Armed Forces garrison along key supply routes in South Kordofan. After taking control of the town, the SPLA-N were eventually pushed back out by a SAF counterattack. Hundreds of homes were destroyed in the battle and hundreds of civilians were forced to flee the violence.



    Video from the second post:



    More videos from "NUBAREPORTS" here:
