Recently it became known that the President of Chad Idris Deby, who led the country since 1990 and was re-elected for a sixth term in April, died of injuries sustained on the front lines during clashes with the rebels.
It was reported that 68-year-old Deby arrived in the escalation zone to direct military operations. However, in the collisions, he was seriously injured and died in hospital. General Azem Bermandoa Aguna reported the sad news on the air of the local TV channel.
The media then reported that a transitional military council was created in the country, headed by the son of the head of state, Mahamat.
