EGYPT:

  • Egypt worried about Qatari moves in South Sudan. Qatar is trying to compensate for the decline of its influence in Khartoum by turning its attention to its rival Juba, as it wants to keep a finger in the pie in a region that is becoming increasingly dynamic on many levels. The Qatari move comes also in the midst of escalating tensions in Ethiopia due to the Tigray crisis.

  • ETHIOPIA: Fighting between Ethiopia’s military and regional forces from the northern Tigray region is seriously destabilizing the East African and Horn region, the EU warned. A 72-hour government deadline for Tigray forces to surrender is due to expire, while the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), a political party spearheading the fighting, has rejected the ultimatum. Ethiopian PM refuses ‘unwelcome’ international offers to end war in Tigray.

  • ETHIOPIA: Ethiopia’s conflict in its powerful Tigray region continued as PM vows further operations. Observers warned the possibility of a civil war. It could destabilize the already turbulent Horn of Africa. There is a great challenge in holding together a country of some 110 million people with multiple ethnic and other grievances.

AFRICA:

The issue threatens to escalate into a full-blown regional conflict as years of talks with a variety of mediators, including the U.S., have failed to produce a solution.
