❌ Sur cette vidéo, des Français détruisent-ils leurs véhicules avant de quitter le #Mali ou le #BurkinaFaso ?
✅ La scène se passe au Burkina Faso, mais les Français n’ont rien à voir avec l’opération
Quant au “pourquoi?”, les incertitudes persistent 1/10
Cette vidéo, partagée depuis le 13 novembre, montre des véhicules pick-up en train d’être détruits

Pour certains, ce sont des “Français” quittant le #Mali suite à la fin de l’opération #Barkhane qui seraient à l’origine de cette opération 2/10
Pour d’autres, si les “Français” seraient bien responsables, cette scène aurait plutôt lieu dans la mine de Perkoa, mine de zinc du centre du #BurkinaFaso, aujourd’hui fermée 3/10

It's now official: Capt. #Traoré is transition president in #BurkinaFaso, a direct result of the 'assises', an assembly of some 300 delegates, adopting tonight a new transition charter stating the head of ruling MPSR junta is also transition president. Why is this significant?🧵
2/ First, while #Traoré's nomination was in recent days a foregone conclusion, it wasn't always so: since day 1 of the #BurkinaFaso coup, he had stressed the transition leader could be a civilian, and that he had no interest himself in ruling. So what has changed in the meantime?
3/ One interpretation is that it was always the plan. Another, that #Traoré realised he could easily be sidelined if he did not make himself president. Following the rebooted junta's 1st speech on state TV on 30 Sept, #Traoré faced pushback in streets of #Ouagadougou from ...

🧵👇 #Russian Telegram channel says the quiet part out loud following #BurkinaFaso coup 2.0. Image
Kremlin propaganda channels usually promote the narrative that Russia will help West Africa by fighting jihadists (via Wagner) and emancipating citizens from the French neocolonial state.
But we know there is a different agenda: resources. Russian proxy companies own mines in multiple African countries, and, when Russia isn't in control of lucrative resources, Wagner operatives have no problem raiding and massacring miners.…

NEW #Africa File | #BurkinaFaso’s latest coup on Sep. 30 indicates that the governance and security crisis in West Africa’s #Sahel region continues to deepen. @liam_karr @brian_cartr @EmilyCEstelle… 1/5 Image
Salafi-jihadi groups linked to #alQaeda and the #IslamicState have exploited cyclical violence and anti-government grievances to root themselves in local communities and steadily expand in the Sahel over the past decade. 2/5 Image
The fallout from the Burkina Faso coup, like the 2020 and 2021 coups in Mali, will likely further reduce counterterrorism pressure and worsen the conditions that lead to Salafi-jihadi expansion. 3/5

In video statement recorded yday & circulating today, #Damiba addresses #BurkinaFasoCoup for 1st time since it began on Friday. He highlights 26 Sept attack on Gaskindé convoy as one of the sparks for the coup, leading to “tensions, misunderstandings & criticism”. Gaskindé was …
2/ … to some extent the Inata of this coup - the spark that lit up the fuel that was e.g. growing frustration over choice of int’l security partners; worsening security situation; Zoungrana’s continued imprisonment; perception #Damiba had become a “civilian politician”
3/ In video, #Damiba criticises Traoré for mutinying when his grievances “should have been addressed through dialogue”. But frustration in part of #MPSR was also based on the perception that Damiba was going it alone and casting aside those who had helped him seize power

The impact of 🇷🇺 🇺🇦 war on #Africa
African countries, which have been out of 🇺🇦 attention for a long time, have now become relevant due to #RussiaUkraineWar. The economic circumstances of war with blocking the export of 🇺🇦 goods abroad affect Africa to a greater extent.
Beyond food security, Africa is a region where Western influence is waning and the presence of Turkey, China and Russia is growing. Modern Africa consists of the former colonies of Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Portugal and Italy. (2/10)
After gaining their independence in the 1960s and 1980s, the newly formed countries began to focus not only on the West. Since the "cold war" was going on at that time, Moscow became a certain "alternative" and at the same time a sponsor of African countries. (3/10)

1/ Les nouveaux putschistes du #BurkinaFaso n’ont toujours pas mis la main sur Damiba et accusent la France de le cacher dans leur base, ce que démentent des officiels français. On peut craindre un dérapage si les putschistes s’attaquent à la base des forces spéciales de Sabre.
2/ Intéressant aussi, mais pas surprenant, que les putschistes annoncent vouloir aller «vers d’autres partenaires». Depuis quelques mois déjà, #Wagner et le Kremlin tentent de se rapprocher de Damiba, sans succès. Le colonel ayant vu les résultats de cette collaboration au #Mali
3/ S’il est trop tôt pour affirmer que cette tentative de coup a été préparée avec un appui russe, l’apparition concomitante d’une campagne de désinformation pro russe sur les RS, dès les premiers tirs, et les messages annonciateurs des influenceurs du Kremlin, sont suspects.👇 ImageImageImageImage

It’s now official: there is a #coup within a coup in #BurkinaFaso. Little is known about coup leader Ibrahim Traoré. What we do know is that the coup came amid spiralling tensions within #MPSR. Here’s a look at the main points from tonight’s announcement and what led to this 🧵
1/ Damiba has been toppled by coup plotters who claim to belong to the #MPSR. Unclear at this stage where Damiba is. Sources mentioned earlier he had been arrested and negotiations revolved around the conditions of his departure from power
2/ Cpt. Ibrahim Traoré is the new #MPSR president. He was named Chef d’Artillerie du Dixième Régiment de Commandement d’Appui et de Soutien by Damiba in March 2022, but little else is known about him at this stage

#Mutiny and clashes in #BurkinaFaso still underway. Are we seeing a #coup within a coup - if so who is behind it? Much is unclear, but the presidency announced earlier on social media it is negotiating with mutineers. How did we get here are what are they likely to talk about?🧵
2/ In recent weeks, discontent📈within the army. Some see #Damiba as having become more of a politician than the military leader they were hoping for & see him as having failed to deliver on his security promises. 26 Sept convoy attack in #Gaskindé sparked further📈in frustration
3/ As security forces suffer recurring losses, the dynamic could be similar to Nov 2021, when the high death toll of the Inata attack against sec forces and the news that they were ill-equipped and supplied sparked anger and discontent in the ranks

#BurkinaFaso 🇧🇫

An improvised explosive device killed at least 35 civilians on Monday.

@mathpellerin says this attack stands out because it specifically targeted civilians as opposed to the army.
#Haiti 🇭🇹

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Port-au-Prince & other cities on Wednesday to demand de facto Prime Minister Ariel Henry’s resignation.

@renaticas says this might indicate the reversal of a downward trend in the number of protests over the past year.
#Türkiye 🇹🇷 - #Greece 🇬🇷

President Erdoğan accused Athens of militarising what should be demilitarised Eastern Aegean islands, threatening to “do what was necessary”.

1. Yesterday, during the #Economic #Forum in #Karpacz #Poland, Jaroslaw #Kaczynski uttered categorical words: "Western #Europe is culturally alien to us".

Let us take Kaczynski's words as an opportunity to recall an extremely important thread.

Let us recount what he said.
2. You can see #Kaczynski during discussion panel together with MEPs @ZdzKrasnodebski and Ryszard Legutko, his two main informal advisors on ideological and international issues.

"The threat to our sovereignty from the West is greater than from the East." - claimed Krasnodebski.
3. A lot of attention has been paid to #Kaczynski's shoes, but - let's face it - while embarrassing, that's not what's most important

[#LeZOOM] | « La réussite de la Fédération du #Mali devrait marquer le début d’une Fédération en Afrique de l’Ouest et dans toute l’Afrique. Nous avons échoué. Toute la balkanisation de l’#Afrique 🌍 vient de là » rappelait Assane Seck.

Pourquoi cet échec, on vous raconte 👇
Le Congrès de #Bamako (Soudan français) du 29 au 30 décembre 1958 a permis de poser les bases de la création de la Fédération du Mali.👇
La Fédération passe de 4 à 2 avec le retrait du #Dahomey (actuel #Bénin 🇧🇯) et la Haute-Volta (actuel #BurkinaFaso 🇧🇫) sous la pression conjointe de la #France 🇫🇷 et de la Côte d’Ivoire 🇨🇮. 👇
