In recent days, the problems in African countries, which have been increasingly occupying the world public opinion, have become more prominent. Following the coup in Niger, uncertainties about what awaits Niger persist, while two military forces that have been silent for a long time have resumed conflict in Sudan.
The official armed forces of Sudan – the TMC, has begun to hit the positions of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), which are believed to have around 40,000 military personnel and are considered mercenaries conducting military operations in Sudan, with warplanes.
What is The Rapid Support Forces (RSF)?
Why have weapons started speaking again in Sudan? What are the differences between RSF and the Wagner Group? In this article, I will provide answers to these questions.
The Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in Sudan are a paramilitary group that is part of the Sudan Transitional Military Council (TMC). RSF was established after the overthrow of Sudan’s former dictator, Omar al-Bashir, and it plays a significant role in Sudan’s internal security forces.
The dictator al-Bashir’s coup was halted at Sudan
Omar al-Bashir was ousted in a military coup that took place in Sudan on April 11, 2019. The coup led to the overthrow of al-Bashir, who had been in power in Sudan for 30 years, and marked the beginning of a transitional period for Sudan.
The coup occurred following protests against the economic crisis in Sudan and human rights violations under al-Bashir’s rule. Protesters were demanding al-Bashir’s resignation. The coup was carried out by commanders of the Sudanese army. The coup plotters arrested al-Bashir and established a transitional government in his place.
The transitional government aims to end the 30-year military dictatorship in Sudan and establish a democratic government. The transitional government plans for Sudan to hold general elections in 2023.
RSF is better equipped than the Army.
RSF is stationed in various regions of Sudan. The largest base of RSF is located in the capital city of Khartoum. RSF also has bases in other regions of Sudan, such as Darfur, Kordofan, and Blue Nile.
The military strength of RSF is about half of the Sudanese army. RSF is estimated to have around 40,000 soldiers. RSF is better armed and better trained than the Sudanese army.
RSF is held responsible for human rights violations in Sudan. RSF is accused of using violence against civilians, torture, and committing mass killings. RSF has also played a role in the internal conflict in Sudan.
RSF is a significant part of the political crisis in Sudan. RSF is one of the strongest forces within the TMC and has a significant impact on Sudan’s future.
RSF and Wagner pose a major threat to Africa.
The Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and the Wagner Group are two paramilitary groups operating in Africa. RSF was established after the overthrow of Sudan’s former dictator, Omar al-Bashir, and it plays a significant role in Sudan’s internal security forces. The Wagner Group is a private military company with ties to Russia and operates in various countries across Africa.
There are some key differences between RSF and the Wagner Group. RSF is a part of the Sudanese army and is controlled by the Sudanese government. The Wagner Group, on the other hand, is a private military company and is not controlled by the Russian government. RSF is held responsible for human rights violations in Sudan. The Wagner Group, however, has not been held accountable for human rights violations by the Russian government.
RSF and the Wagner Group play important roles in Africa. RSF plays a significant role in Sudan’s internal security forces and has been involved in the internal conflict in Sudan. The Wagner Group operates in various countries across Africa and contributes to political crises in the region.
RSF and the Wagner Group pose a significant threat to Africa’s future. RSF could escalate the internal conflict in Sudan and worsen the political crisis. The Wagner Group could contribute to political crises in Africa and potentially lead to new internal conflicts in the region.
