Looking at the networks that support #Hemedti in #Sudan, an interesting carousel emerges with the #UAE in the middle

Network-centric statecraft at its best, involving #Libya, #Wagner and the War in #Yemen Image
2) starting with the #UAE's direct networks to #Sudan & the #RSF, Abu Dhabi has set up a well-oiled network of companies and financial institutions to support #Hemedti to bring gold to market and manage personal finances…

Abu Dhabi has significant leverage over Hemedti

"With the sending of mercenaries to Yemen and the financial manna of gold smuggling for the #UAE, #Hemetti also became one of the richest and most powerful men in the country." #Sudan…

As fighting continues in Khartoum, @DFRLab discovered 900+ Twitter accounts that appear to have been hijacked and refurbished to boost content supportive of #Hemedti and the #RSF, making the paramilitary force appear more popular than they may be. 🧵👇…
Our team reviewed 4,882 accounts and found that some very old accounts, most of which had been dormant for many years, suddenly began tweeting between December 2022 and February 2023 at what appeared to be a random combination of words and a date Image
After the random posts, accounts started liking content posted by Hemedti/RSF. However, almost none of the 900 accounts actually followed Hemedti or the RSF. Trying to appear authentic, accounts sometimes tweeted out Quran verses and inspirational quotes, often simultaneously.

The #SAF-#RSF war across #Sudan 🇸🇩 is not just a power struggle between #Burhan and #Hemedti, it is a clash of two military generations. Two vastly different cultures of warfare, each with a desire to dominate Sudan and have the other one be the scapegoat of decades of misery. Image
Burhan represents the old guard, the generals who took power in 1989 and have basically ruled #Sudan 🇸🇩 ever since. The SAF is a responds to ower struggles with coups and to rebellions with sieges and bombardments. It is a classic Arab military, similar to the EGA 🇪🇬or the SAA 🇸🇾 Image
Hemedti is the challenger. He represents the warlord generation, his irregular RSF was founded from the "Janjaweed" militias, which were created to do the SAF's dirty work.

RSF militants would destroy village after village in rebellious areas, slaughter thousands of civilians. Image

Attenzione a quanto sta accadendo in #Sudan. Scontri riportati nella capitale #Khartoum fra l'esercito sudanese ufficiale e le forze di supporto rapido (RSF) del generale Hemedti. Spari registrati anche nelle vicinanze dell'ambasciata italiana.
🚨🇸🇩 Operazioni sospese all'aeroporto internazionale di #Khartoum. L'esercito regolare sta bloccando le strade che conducono al palazzo presidenziale erigendo fortificazioni. Bloccato il transito sui ponti della capitale sudanese.

Per chi vuole capire in estrema sintesi i motivi e i protagonisti degli scontri in corso a #Khartoum: da tempo in #Sudan infiamma la rivalità fra i due generali che nel 2021 hanno deposto il dittatore Omar al-Bashir, attualmente detenuto in una prigione sudanese per…… Image

#Sudan 🇸🇩: residents of #Khartoum woke up this morning to the sound of gunfire and plumes of smoke rising into the air as clashes appear to have erupted in the capital city.

These armed confrontations follow weeks of rising tensions between the SAF and RSF military factions.
#Sudan 🇸🇩: many Sudanese see loyalists of the former #Bashir regime as being behind the recent tensions, sowing chaos as a way to derail any transition process and attempt a possible return to power…
#Sudan 🇸🇩: more footage if gunfure and rising smoke in the #Khartoum area.

#Sudan 🇸🇩: during a speech today #RSF warlord #Hemedti was trying to save his own skin by saying he regretted his role in the #SudanCoup.

He stated the coup of October 25th was a mistake which opened the door for the former regime (Bashir loyalists) to return to power. Image
#Sudan 🇸🇩: meanwhile #Khartoum based Resistance Committees are calling for anti-military protests on 21 February. Image
#Sudan 🇸🇩: anti-military protests in the streets of #Khartoum today.

#Sudan 🇸🇩: a deal has been reached in order to end the #SudanCoup which has been going on for over a year now.

Both the #FFC and the military have agreed to a 24-month transition, under the leadership of a civilian PM, with elections at the end.

But there's a but 👇
#Sudan 🇸🇩: just as with the previous transition deal there is very little that holds either #Burhan or #Hemedti to honor their promises, meaning the country is and remains very vulnerable to another #SudanCoup at any moment.

There is also no mention of any reform of the military
#Sudan 🇸🇩: the Resistance committees, which were the backbone of the December Revolution have already voiced their opposition to the deal since it doesn't include any framework to bring justice to the 110+ protesters who were killed since the #SudanCoup.
