The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) confirmed on Thursday that the three are being treated in a hospital in North Kivu’s capital, Goma. Though the SANDF did not say which rebel group attacked the South Africans, the Mail & Guardian can confirm that it’s the Mai-Mai group led by militia leader, General Janvier Karairi.

The confrontation with Karairi’s 4 500-strong rebel group took place in the early hours of Wednesday morning, according to the SANDF statement. “One member was seriously wounded and is currently in a Level 3 hospital in Goma,” said SA Navy Captain Jaco Theunissen, who released the statement to the media. “Two other members sustained minor injuries and are being treated at the same hospital in Goma.”
