In responce to the deliberate and intensified bombadment of Rwanda territory by the Congolese military, Rwanda has today deployed massively along its border with the DRCongo.
Rwanda’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Government Spokesperson said, “ we have remained restrained for as long as we can but this provocation can no longer be tolerated.”
She said that DRC forces are deliberately targeting Rwandan civilians adding that Rwanda has repeatedly urged the Government of DRC to stop attacks on its territory but instead violations have increased in frequency and intensity.
The minister said in a statement, “We have the capacity to determine who fired at us and will not hesitate to defend our territory. Rwanda has a responsibility to protect its population.”
