10 Sudanese rebels were killed and 12 others were arrested on Friday in a massive attack by the revolutionary fighters of Al-Kufra on rebel-held Bizimah oasis, 130 km northwest of the city.

Kufra fighters took control of the oasis, which was used by Darfur rebels as a main base for storing ammunition and food supplies, and launching attacks of desert convoys.

The attack came one 2 days after Kufra revolutionaries liberated Bu Zarig checkpoint, some 200 km north of the city, leaving dozens of Sudanese rebels killed.
