Poktap Airstrip, location N7.4566 E31.4149 13km north of Panyagor, visible on satellite images is a north/south runway of about 3800 feet/1150 meters length (UNHAS: runway 18/36 with 800 meters length and 25 meters width)
Rialbek Airstrip, location N7.3377 E31.4211 800 meters northeast of Panyagor, according to UNHAS featuring runway 17/35 length 650 meters width 35 meters, satellite images showing only forest.
Wiernyor Airstrip, location N7.3263 E31.4237 1100 meters southeast of Panyagor, according to UNHAS featuring runway 15/33 length 800 meters width 21 meters, satellite images inconclusive (most aviation sources identify this location as Panyagor Airport)
Kongor Airstrip, location N7.1683 E31.4117 18km south of Panyagor, visible on satellite images is a runway, approx 03/21, of 1150 meters length, according to UNHAS this is Panyagor/Mabior Airstrip with a runway 03/21 of 1280 meters length and 30 meters width or 1200 meters length and 60 meters width (conflicting entries in the UNHAS document).
