Southern Cameroons War: Civilians flee Bali as French Cameroun troops continue assault on Amba fighters 0
Cameroon government army soldiers attacked Ambazonia Self-Defense positions in Bali Nyonga on Saturday in a military operation just a day after the so-called Grand National Dialogue announced that the regime in Yaounde was preparing to accord special status to Southern Cameroons in a bid to end the Ambazonia conflict.
Cameroon Concord News gathered that residents fled Bali Nyonga and the Southern Cameroons town of Bali toward Manyu held by Southern Cameroons Restoration Forces.
The Cameroon government onslaught killed at least eleven civilians and six Ambazonia fighters, and wounded scores of civilians, our source said.
Yaounde said the offensive was targeting “separatists fighters” — the Ambazonia separatist group and other armed militias operating on the main highway linking Mamfe to Bamenda.
The Ambazonia Interim Government is yet to comment on the recent assault seen potentially as sending contradicting signals to the people of Southern Cameroons.
