October 2021 coup in Sudan


December 6, 2021

October 2021 Sudanese coup d'état On October 25, the Sudanese army, led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, seized control of the country in a military coup. At least five senior government officials, including civilian Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdouk, were initially detained. Abdullah Hamdouk was taken to an unknown location by coup forces after refusing to support the coup and calling for popular resistance. Widespread internet outages have also been reported. On the same day, the Governing Council was dissolved and a state of emergency was declared. The majority of Hamdouk's cabinet and a large number of government supporters were arrested. Major civilian groups, including the Sudanese Professional Association and the Freedom and Change Forces, called for civil disobedience and a refusal to cooperate with the coup organizers. Mass demonstrations took place on October 25 against the coup, which met with deadly military responses. At least 10 civilians were killed and more than 140 were injured in the protests.


According to the Wall Street Journal, during the coup, the head of Egypt's National Security Agency traveled to Khartoum to meet with coup leader General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and ask him to oust Abdullah Hamdouk. Hamdouk's stance on the Ennahda Dam has jeopardized Egypt's agricultural security and displeased Egyptian officials. According to Reuters, Abdullah Hamdouk has also secretly sought to sign the Ibrahim Pact with the United States and Israel, and is therefore backed by Israel. According to Newsweek, the signing of the Ibrahim Covenant is now in a state of ambiguity following the coup.
