Não te enganes, os vídeos que tens é do próprio Exército e têm sempre semanas ou mesmo meses depois das ditas acções. Todos os vídeos são limpos e não aparece nem mortos, nem sangue, nem nada de nada a não ser a nossa tropa a mandar fusgada e a dar alimentos/brinquedos/material escolar às crianças.O estado novo não faria melhor e atualmente nós temos uns media "independentes".
Estes dois ataques são os primeiros confrontos nos arredores de Bangui desde que os rebeldes anunciaram uma ofensiva há quase um mês ao Presidente da República Centro-Africana.
Os rebeldes que lideram uma ofensiva contra o regime do Presidente da República Centro-Africana, Faustin Archange Touaderá, recentemente eleito, realizaram esta quarta-feira, dois ataques simultâneos na entrada de Bangui, que foram repelidos, disse o Ministro do Interior centro-africano.Os dois ataques, confirmados pelo ministro centro-africano Henri Wanzet Linguissara à agência de notícias AFP, também foram corroborados por dois funcionários da missão da ONU na República Centro-Africana (MINUSCA), sob condição de anonimato.Em duas frentes, a poucos quilómetros da capital, na madrugada desta quarta-feira, as brigadas do exército “foram atacadas simultaneamente mas, graças à bravura das nossas forças e ao apoio bilateral, conseguimos repelir os atacantes que são atualmente em fuga”, disse o ministro centro-africano.O porta-voz da MINUSCA no país, tenente-coronel Abdoulaziz Fall, referiu “um ataque” e confrontos ainda em curso.Estes são os primeiros confrontos nos arredores de Bangui desde que os rebeldes anunciaram uma ofensiva há quase um mês.Em 19 de dezembro, oito dias antes das eleições presidenciais e legislativas, uma coligação de seis dos grupos armados mais poderosos que ocupam dois terços da República Centro-Africana – desde o início da guerra civil há oito anos -, anunciou uma ofensiva para impedir a reeleição de Touaderá.O Presidente foi reeleito em 04 de janeiro, depois de uma votação muito contestada pela oposição, que afirmam que apenas um em cada dois eleitores registados teve oportunidade de ir às urnas devido à falta de segurança fora de Bangui.Os rebeldes da Coligação de Patriotas para a Mudança (CPC) realizaram, até agora, ataques esporádicos geralmente repelidos pelas forças da ONU, apoiados por contingentes de soldados ruandeses e paramilitares russos fortemente armados desembarcados recentemente para ajudar o Governo central do país.Esses ataques ocorriam em cidades e locais distantes da capital.A RCA caiu no caos e na violência em 2013, após o derrube do então Presidente François Bozizé, por grupos armados juntos na Séléka, o que suscitou a oposição de outras milícias, agrupadas na anti-Balaka.Desde então, o território centro-africano tem sido palco de confrontos comunitários entre estes grupos, que obrigaram quase um quarto dos 4,7 milhões de habitantes da RCA a abandonarem as suas casas.Portugal tem atualmente na RCA 243 militares, dos quais 188 integram a Minusca e 55 participam na missão de treino da União Europeia (EUTM), liderada por Portugal, pelo brigadeiro general Neves de Abreu, até setembro de 2021.
On January 13th, rebels in the Central African Republic launched a coordinated attack on the capital Bangui.They were ultimately pushed back, as announced by the UN Mission in the country.The assault was the first time rebels struck so close to the city since President Faustin Archange Touadera was re-elected on December 27th.“The attackers who came in large numbers to take Bangui have been vigorously pushed back,” Prime Minister Firmin Ngrebada saidThis vote followed what the authorities in the countries was an attempt at a coup by the rebel forces.
It all began with attacks on the CAR and UN army units in the early morning. These positions were at 9km and 12km from the capital, targeted two army brigades but the rebel forces were repelled, Interior Minister Henri Wanzet Linguissara said.A Rwandan member of the force was killed while another was wounded. A number of attackers were killed, while others were arrested, according to the MINUSCA statement.The attacks were the latest since the alliance of CAR’s six most powerful rebel groups who control two-thirds of the country launched an offensive to prevent Touadera’s re-election.Despite that, he won the vote and was declared the winner on January 4th. The coalition of armed groups, the same one that’s accused of a coup vowed to march on Bangui and take control.The rebels have carried out sporadic attacks mostly in towns far from the capital that were repelled by UN peacekeepers and Central African troops, along with Rwandan and Russian soldiers and mercenaries.CAR prosecutors have launched an investigation into former President Francois Bozize, whom the government accuses of plotting the alleged coup with the help of the armed groups.

The peacekeepers, a Gabonese and a Moroccan, died during an ambush on their convoy.
Rebels killed two peacekeepers in the Central African Republic on Monday, the UN mission MINUSCA said, hours after the country’s top court confirmed that President Faustin Archange Touadera had won re-election.The deaths brought to seven the number of MINUSCA troops killed since the start of a rebel offensive against Touadera on December 19.MINUSCA said in a statement that the peacekeepers slain Monday were a Gabonese and a Moroccan who died during an ambush on their convoy.It blamed the attack on “elements of the coalition of armed groups,” referring to a newly formed rebel alliance that mounted an attempted coup ahead of the December 27 election in the violence-wracked country.Touadera has alleged that his predecessor, Francois Bozize, fomented the offensive.Also Monday, the Constitutional Court confirmed Touadera’s victory in the December election but said turnout, which was suppressed by armed groups, was little more than a third, with many voters prevented from casting their ballots.Two-thirds of the former French colony is in the hands of armed groups, and Touadera relies on security and military support from MINUSCA as well as Russia and Rwanda.
Rebel Forces Attack On Bangui Repelled By UN And CAR Forces
The Central African Republic (CAR) has declared a state of emergency as the army and UN forces try to repel advancing rebel groups who want to overthrow the government.The anti-government fighters, who now control two-thirds of the country, have surrounded the capital, Bangui.The UN envoy to CAR has warned the country was "at grave risk."The rebels dispute the validity of President Faustin Archange Touadéra's re-election in last month's poll.The authorities have accused former President François Bozizé, who was blocked from running in the 27 December election, for the escalating violence.
"The perpetrators... of these unforgettable crimes against the people of CAR will be found, arrested and brought before the competent courts," President Touadéra said on Monday, while also calling for national reconciliation.Mr Bozizé, who came to power in 2003 before he was overthrown in 2013, had denied the allegations.At least 60,00 civilians have fled the country due to recent fighting.Call for more UN peacekeepersThe state of emergency declared on Thursday evening will last for 15 days, the government spokesman Albert Yaloke Mokpeme said on national radio.He said soldiers will be allowed to make arrests without going through prosecutors.The BBC's Pacôme Pabandji in Bangui says many residents of the capital are not surprised at the state of emergency given the deteriorating security situation in recent weeks.According to security sources, the declaration was a necessary step after information obtained from people arrested in the last few days suggested there was an imminent threat to the government.CAR "is at serious risk of a security and peacebuilding setback," said Mankeur Ndiaye, the UN envoy to the country.He urged the UN Security Council to increase the number of peacekeepers with a flexible mandate, that allows them to respond to the escalating security challenges in the country.
Mr Ndiaye did not specify the security resources he wanted to be deployed but the Reuters news agency, quoting a source close to the UN mission, Minusca, reported that CAR needed 3,000 extra peacekeepers, attack helicopters and even special forces.According to Mr Ndiaye, large numbers of government troops have deserted due to insufficient training and resources.At least 12,000 peacekeepers are already on the ground in CAR.Ahead of the December election, Rwanda and Russia sent in reinforcements to help the government. France has also sent in military resources to back President Touadéra's government.Meanwhile, the government is pushing for the lifting of a 2013 UN arms embargo which it sees as an obstacle in its fight against the rebels.
