While the Egyptian-Sudanese border witnessed strict security measures, security reports warned of infiltration of infiltrators during evacuations from Sudan to other regional countries. The Egyptian authorities tightened the inspection procedures at the Arqin border crossing with Sudan, and prevented the passage of any car except after it was searched and inspected by explosives experts.
Dr. Sabra Al Qasimi, a researcher in the affairs of terrorist groups in Cairo, warned of Sudan turning into a fertile and incubating environment for terrorist organizations amidst the chaos it is witnessing at the present time, led by “ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Brotherhood”, especially since Al Qaeda still has an interest in operating inside Sudan.
Al-Qasimi told Okaz that the terrorist elements see in these military confrontations a means of proliferation, and a starting point for the African continent, which will greatly affect the security situation in Sudan and on the large borders with its neighbors, as these extremist elements seek with all force to return to spread weapons and violence. between neighboring countries, creating conflicts in stable countries and serving the continuation of conflicts in unstable countries such as Libya, Somalia, Niger, Nigeria and other countries of the brown continent.
He pointed out that there are factors that help the return of terrorist elements to Sudan again, the first of which is the presence of the Brotherhood in the past, and as for the second factor, the period of the Brotherhood’s rule under the leadership of Omar al-Bashir, there was great cooperation with terrorist organizations or launching operations from their lands against Arab countries.
The researcher ruled out the lack of cooperation between terrorist groups strategically united in the goal of controlling and obtaining power, pointing out that the situation in Sudan is dangerous and the country is living in very difficult security conditions, which is a ticking-off for regional countries bordering Sudan.
And he considered that the current fighting is tearing Sudan apart and making the Red Sea region and the Horn of Africa unstable, calling for the necessity of putting a quick end to the fighting between the army and rapid support forces, and the intervention of countries to put pressure on the current leaders to resume a process that brings Sudan to safety and achieves stability.
