However, this meeting decided in particular on the cessation of hostilities in this part of the DRC. The clashes were reported about 18 kilometers from the Rumangabo military camp in the Kisigari groupement.
The customary authority in the region says the clashes continue. The local population, which was still present in the area, is moving towards Kalengera, Biruma and Rumangabo.
On the other hand, the M23 rebels also attacked around 6 a.m. the FARDC positions in Rwanguba, in the Jomba group, in an attempt to penetrate Rutshuru-Centre. But they were repelled by the FARDC, say local sources.
The ceasefire trampled on
During the summit held on Wednesday July 6 in Luanda (Angola), between the Rwandan presidents, Paul Kagame, and the Congolese, Félix Tshisekedi, a ceasefire was decided as well as the withdrawal of the M23 from Congolese territory.
