sudan

Sudan is an Arab nation in North Africa, directly south of Egypt and along the Red Sea. 

Since becoming independent in 1956, Sudan has had a tumultuous history rife with coups and political instability - the most recent coup having happened in 2021 and the crackdown against protesters being ongoing at the time of writing.

Notably, despite having long held staunch opposition to the State of Israel, ties between Israel and Sudan seem to be getting close to warming at the time of writing following efforts to bring them into normalization under the rubric of the Abraham Accords.
