NEW | @brian_cartr: The Turkish raid on an alleged ISIS safe house in NW Syria on Apr 28 likely killed an ISIS leader, but not the caliph. Targeting ISIS leadership is helpful, but it fails to address the group’s ability to embed itself within local populations. Read the update…… ImageImageImage
@brian_cartr The #alQaeda and #IslamicState networks in Africa will likely seek to use the #Sudan conflict to improve their position on the continent. Numerous inmates escaped from a prison in #Khartoum city beginning on April 22 amid clashes between Sudan’s two warring factions. Image

This is the start of daily thread number 430 of the illegal war in #Ukraine, with all the news in one place.

A very good Saturday morning to you; it's been a lively start to the day for #Russia's occupiers.

First though the usual link to the start of yesterday's thread. Take a scroll if you missed anything or need a catch-up:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

#Crimea has been illegally occupied by #Russia since 2014. It was the very start of this war, far predating the full invasion 14 months ago.

But the Occupiers are getting worried. Overnight an oil depot was set on fire when a drone hit Kozachi Bay. No injuries reported: ImageImageImage

A 🧵 with some thoughts on #Sudan & how we got here:

Many rightly blame Bashir for creating Himedti & his militia as well as Burhan as Islamist SAF officer. No excuses for Bashir - but who created him? I first came to #Khartoum in 1997 & NOBODY took him seriously then. 1/10 Image
Of course, it was Turabi who ruled #Sudan back then rather than Bashir & had planned for it strategically for decades. So who paved the way for the Sheikh? Yes, Nimeiri elevated him since late '70s with Saudi support, but before it was: Sadiq al Mahdi & his UMMA. 2/10 Image
As I raged in my Twitter obituary for His Royal Holiness, never forget: it was Sadiq's UMMA who pushed for an Islamist constitution in the late 1960s. He ignored the Supreme Court ruling to reverse his ban of #Sudan's Communist Party & thus undermined the judiciary. 3/10 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.

#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.

Today's thread follows the historical linguistics to the present. As discussed, Nubia has a long & rich history of writing, starting w/ Meroitic script, before Old Nubian writing rose to dominance in the 6-15th C.
But what about today? How has Nubian writing been kept alive?

Well, the truth is, for the longest time, Nubian script had gone more or less extinct (as far as we know, anyway). Writing in Nubia, as is the case with many world cultures, was closely tied with religion, and religious change usually meant script change.

The Meroitic writing system, based on Egyptian hieroglyphs and Demotic, corresponded to a period of history where Nubians and Egyptians shared a religion. Old Nubian, primarily based on Greek, corresponded to the Christian era of Nubia.

1/4 At the 1967 #Arab League Summit in #Khartoum, there were 3 nos - no peace with #Israel, no recognition of Israel and no negotiations with Israel.

Whether he (and his boss) had an alternative agenda or simply misread the evolving mood in the Middle East we'll never know.⏩⏩⏩⏩
