"This conflict is far from being an unpredictable event. On the contrary, since the fall of the regime of Omar Al-Bashir in 2019, Sudan has entered a new and dangerous period of political, economic and social instability since everything has fallen to the whims and internal/international agendas of two generals, Abdel Fattah al-Burhane and Mohamad Hamdan Daglo. Certainly, it is a conflict between the Sudanese but it is also a conflict of geostrategic influence between some regional actors like Egypt, Qatar and Emirates, including international conflicts such as the United States and Russia. It is a conflict that can have serious repercussions on peace and stability in Africa."
