Renewed military operations in DRC could impact demobilisation & return activities

May 2013

We, Congolese civil society organization in LRA affected areas, have recently been informed that MONUSCO Ituri Brigade wants to launch in three weeks' time a military offensive operations against the LRA in Garamba National Park. There are currently DDR efforts to help defection of a large group of LRA. We fear this military intervention would jeopardize current and future initiatives to encourage defection and return of LRA abductees, which can in turn help end the violence.

Nous, les Organisations de la Société Civile dans la zone affectée par la LRA, avons été récemment informées que la BRIGADE ITURI de la MONUSCO planifie une offensive militaire contre la LRA dans le Parc national de la Garamba dans trois semaines. Il y a actuellement une initiative pour faciliter le retour d‘un groupe de rescapés de la LRA. Nous craignons que cette intervention militaire mette en péril les initiatives présentes et futures visant à encourager la défection et le retour des hommes, femmes et enfants kidnappés par la LRA.
