FARDC bombed Mugunga IDP camp injuring 16 people, with the intention of pinning this crime on M23.
FARDC is using Mobutu’s old trick in Kolwezi in 1978 to provoke foreign intervention. In May 1978 an uprising took place in Katanga against Mobutu. Mobutu asked for assistance from France and Belgium to crush the rebellion and a French legion arrived to help when corpses of Europeans, purportedly killed by the Katanga rebels, were displayed by Mobutu’s Government. In actual fact the Europeans had been killed by Colonel Bosange on orders from Mobutu in accordance with Mobutu’s plan to provoke intervention from France.
M23 strongly condemns the criminal act of deliberately targeting civilians by FARDC.
