4. Egyptian army: Soldier stuck in Sudan
Amid the ongoing tensions between Ethiopia and Sudan, an Egyptian soldier has reportedly been stuck in Sudan for months. The soldier, whose identity has not been disclosed, was stationed near the border area to monitor any potential threats. However, due to various factors, including bureaucratic red tape and border closures, the soldier has been unable to return to Egypt.
The case has garnered attention in Egyptian media and social media, with many calling on the government to take action and bring the soldier back home. Meanwhile, Sudanese authorities have assured that they are working to resolve the issue and facilitate the soldier’s safe return. However, the situation remains unresolved, and it is unclear when the soldier will be able to return home.
- Border closures have prevented the soldier from crossing back into Egypt
- Bureaucratic red tape has delayed the soldier’s paperwork and processing
- The ongoing tensions between Ethiopia and Sudan have made the situation more complicated
Despite the challenges, the Egyptian government has assured that they are working to resolve the issue and bring the soldier back home. However, it remains to be seen how long it will take to resolve the situation and reunite the soldier with his family.
The Egyptian military said Thursday that its soldiers had been stuck in Sudan for up to two months and were either at the embassy in the country or the home of a colonel who has been helping them.
Lieutenant Colonel Ahmed Sameh, head of the military’s Sinai Division, said the soldiers had been stuck because the Sudanese military refused to let them leave to depose the president, Omar al-Bashir. “They have not been laid down yet,” he said.
The soldiers are thought to be either stuck in Sudanese territory or at the embassy, where Colonel Sameh is said to be helping them. Colonel Sameh said the soldiers were not being treated well and were not able to leave the country for fear of being rearrested.
