The commander of the Sudanese army has ordered the formation of a new governing council in the country.

Iran PressAfrica: Sudan's army commander General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who assumed power last month in a coup and removed the country’s transitional civilian administration, has now formed a new council to lead the Northeast African country.

Burhan would remain the head of a new governing Sovereign Council, while Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, the leader of the feared and notorious paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) who is also known as Hemeti, would keep his post as deputy.

On October 25, Burhan dissolved the cabinet and the ruling military-civilian sovereign council. He also declared a state of emergency and put Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok under an effective house arrest, while detaining other leading members of his government.

More than two weeks after Sudan's military coup against the government, the country witnessed civil disobedience on Sunday (yesterday) and closed businesses, companies and institutions in Khartoum, the capital.

In recent weeks, the military has been mounting a harsh crackdown on protesters, who have been taking to the streets after Sudan’s main opposition coalition called for civil disobedience and protests across the country hours after the military coup.

The situation inside Sudan is critical and unsettled, and foreign intervention in the country has increased.

 Over the past few years, following the escalation of political tensions in Sudan, many foreign actors such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the United States and the Zionist regime have been present in the Sudanese political arena, both openly and covertly. According to the leaked documents, the United States was aware of the coup in Khartoum, and the traces of the Zionist regime are also evident in this coup too. 219
