The troops of the Central African Republic national army, FACA, are fighting some rebels of the Coalition of Patriots for Change (CPC) in Ngakobo on the Bambari-Alindao highway, security sources told HumAngle.
Sources said that the rebels attacked the convoy of vehicles early this morning before launching another attack on FACA and Russian allies positions in Ngaboko.
“The fighting is still going on right now and heavy and light arms detonations can be heard throughout the neighbourhoods,” one of the sources who pleaded for anonymity said.
“Frightened populations have been forced to remain indoors while others who tried to flee could eventually not leave their houses because of the intensity of the confrontation.”
The CPC rebels have recently reinforced their positions in the Ouaka prefecture with coordinated attacks against FACA positions and their Russian allies of the Wagner Security Group in the town of Bambari and locations on its periphery, forcing the Prefect of Ouaka to extend the one-week curfew he imposed in the zone recently.
