Burkina Faso, Mali Send Warplanes To Niger Republic

Burkina Faso and Mali have deployed warplanes in Niger Republic following the threat of the Economic Community of West Africa (ECOWAS) troops that they were waiting for order to strike.

The regional bloc had given Niger junta a week ultimatum to reinstate President Mohamed Bazoum or face possible sanctions, including possible military action.

The coupists had called the bluff of ECOWAS and vowed to resist foreign intervention.

Subsequently, ECOWAS Defence Chiefs were ordered to activate the region’s force for action to restore civil rule in Niger.

But Burkina Faso and Mali warned that any military intervention in Niger will be considered a declaration of war against them
