The next two weeks promise to bring astonishing weather to both sides of the Red Sea & across the Sahara. In this weather bulletin I will explain what the models are forecasting.

Today's #NorthAfrica #HornOfAfrica and #MiddleEast rainfall forecasts follow.
In the image above we see part of Arabia and part of the #NileBasin storms - those which feed the Blue Nile/Abbay and the Tekeze basins the source of most of the Nile's flow.
Below we see:
1. All Nile Basin rainfall as of this evening
2. All of this evenings #ArabianStorms
The rainfall we see on both sides of the Red Sea comes mostly from the same source - the monsoon over the Arabian Sea, India and South East Asia.
A satellite image from this morning shows what we currently think to be the cradle of humanity. Where we all come from.

#Sahel: Today, #JNIM released the video "If they fight you, fight them". It's been almost three years since JNIM released their last full-length video with combat footage, namely "And the Battle Continues".
#Sahel: This could be explained by several factors: First, the focus has been on the political line; second, JNIM's official media presence has declined significantly, and this is against the backdrop of several key media figures (in #Algeria and #Mali) being killed
#Sahel: The decline is particularly relevant when compared to #ISGS, which received major boost from its formal integration into #IslamicState's organizational infrastructure & media apparatus. However, this last video marks the effective recovery of #JNIM media wing Al-Zallaqa.

Sergey Soygu, Russian defence minister, has subbed #America like eight times in his speech. FTT, he's right. America has lost the war in #Afghanistan.

"#Africa is of particular concern because our Western partners have not allowed them to stabilise economically."

Is he right? Image
He just reminded us that the Soviet Union supported many liberation movements with #Africa, and has offered a hand of friendship.

P.S I hate it when they (and they're all guilty of this) of talking of Africa as a country.
Another direct sub: "we will sign agreements with our African friends without imposing our ways on you like our Western partners do."

Sonderbare Meldungen kommen aus #Mali .
Dort ist es zu pro-russischen Demonstrationen gekommen, auf denen die Menschen eine russische Intervention forderten.
Sie hoffen so auf ein Ende des Bürgerkrieges.
Sudan und ZAR dürften als Vorbilder gedient haben.
Details im Thread👇
Die Demonstrationen dauern nun seit zwei Tagen.
Unter anderem werden solche Plakate verteilt, worin es heißt, dass Malesen ein Verteidigungsabkommen mit Russland fordern.
Demnach solle eine mögliche russische Intervention die Rebellen zurückschlagen und Bürgerkrieg beenden.
Als Vorbilder dienten wohl andere erfolgreiche russische Interventionen in afrikanischen Ländern.
Moskau schickte dabei nicht reguläre Truppen, sondern meist "Berater" und Söldner.
Fotos: russ.Söldner im Sudan.
P.S.: wen oder was sie auf Foto 4 schleppen, ist unbekannt.😅

The @UN' mission in #Mali 🇲🇱 on Monday called for the "immediate and unconditional" release of the country's president and PM, who were detained by the military.

The detentions came after a reshuffle on Monday designed to respond to criticism of the #interim government ⤵️
@UN 🇲🇱 The detentions have raised fears of a second coup as President #Ndaw and PM #Ouane lead an interim government that was installed after a putsch in August under the threat of regional sanctions.

@erinogun has a recount of the events that led up to Monday's detentions ⤵️
@UN @erinogun The detentions in #Mali have triggered broad international condemnation and demands for their immediate release 🇲🇱

A young woman in Mali gave birth to nine babies on Tuesday - joining a very rare club of mothers to nonuplets. The miraculous pregnancy of 25-year-old Halima Cisse has fascinated the people of the West African country. #nonuplets #9babies…
In fact, when doctors in March advised Cisse needed specialist care, authorities flew her to Morocco, where she gave birth. "The newborns - five girls and four boys - and the mother are all doing well," shared Mali's Health Minister, Fanta Siby. #Nonuplets #newbornbaby
Cisse and her babies are expected to return home in a few weeks, she added. Cisse was initially believed to have been carrying septuplets - a set of seven babies born at once. #septuplets #nonuplets #birth #childbirth #Maliwoman #Pregnancy #babies

Today's #ArabianStorms went in a different direction during the day, but ended up in a familiar place in the end.

Today's #MiddleEast and #Ethiopia #HornOfAfrica rain forecasts follow in the thread below.
In the animation above you can see a flow of clouds from Sudan to Oman. This flow actually originates to the South West in the Central African Republic. Here you see the CAR to Khartoum leg of the journey.
Over the day this stream of moisture intensified powering storms in Oman, which then split into two streams, one heading north over Iran and one to the East to India.

European efforts to train the security and defense forces of #Mali have stumbled. Based on our op-ed, here's a suggestion how they could become more effective (and ensure to manage risks better).
@IngoHenneberg @PayamGhalehdar and Robin Schroeder were my co-authors THREAD 1/
Since its inception in 2013, more than 14,000 soldiers and members of other security forces have attended @eutmmali1 courses.
Mali's armed forces alone comprise roughly 20,000. The EUTM Mandate includes training, education and advice. 2/
EUTM is only one part of a broad national, regional and international approach to peace and security in #Mali and indeed the #Sahel region. Still, creating effective and legitimate defense forces is a crucial part of that approach. So far, it is failing. 3/
