Sudan, a North African country, one of the largest on the continent, is in turmoil. In addition to it being the largest, it is also one of the poorest countries in the world, with the average income being about 750$, according to the World Bank GDP per capita graph. The country is in turmoil, and has been since the 2021 coup by a council of generals, the two most important ones being Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of the armed forces and the country’s “president,” and his deputy and leader of RSF, Gen Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, also known as Hemedti. The entire conflict is based on the two not agreeing on what direction they want the country and its people going in, resulting in this war between factions; one side supporting Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and the other supporting Gen Mohamed Hamdan Daglo.
Recently there had been a ceasefire which was renewed for another 72 hours after the previous one was supposed to expire thanks to heavy diplomatic work by the U.S, U.k, and U.N. However, there are still reports of brutal fighting between the factions in the capital Khartoum. It has been almost 2 weeks of fighting between the army and the opposing parliamentary group, leaving hundreds of people dead. Early on, both sides had agreed to the cease-fire, however it was violated within days. At least 512 have been killed and about 4,200 injured. And now, hundreds of Sudanese flock to the borders of Egypt, hoping to leave behind the violence that is ensuing their country.
