Sudan’s military coup
International unrest continues around the world. Already this year, a military coup in Myanmar and a high-level assassination in Haiti have introduced serious destabilization.
And now this. Under the leadership of General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, Sudan’s military has staged a military coup, arresting Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok, and dissolving the transitional citizen-government.
This savage, military-run regime has been responsible for five genocides since 2003, resulting in the deaths of one to four million people.
Brad Phillips, President of the Sudan-focused Persecution Project, reports, “Another historic popular uprising sponsored by the Sudan Professional Association and led by thousands of courageous protestors — mostly young people — is unfolding on the streets of Khartoum and Omdurman.
“Vice President Hemeti Dagolo, founder of the notorious Janjaweed, has deployed more than 200 armored vehicles in support of Al Burhan’s military crackdown, closing airports, roads, and bridges to stop all traffic and obstruct efforts by the opposition.”
“This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while, I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty.” (Haggai 2:6-7)
