Sudan's military says it has "liberated" several areas of war-torn South Kordofan state, but rebels on Saturday dismissed the claim as propaganda, saying a government offensive achieved "nothing".
The Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) said late Friday that it had taken over Abu Hassan, a rebel command centre, "after a series of victories" elsewhere in the state.
"SAF troops lost some martyrs and suffered wounded," the military said in a statement issued by the state SUNA news agency.
It did not mention casualties among the insurgents.
