Senegalese troops entered the Gambia amid growing crisis due to the fact that long-time ruler of the Western African country of Yahya Jammeh refuses to resign.

Jammeh who came to power in a military coup in 1994, was defeated in the elections in December, losing to Adam barrow, who won 45% of votes. Jammeh initially recognized the presidency, but then announced its "total rejection of the election results." Barrow was sworn in Thursday at the Embassy of Gambia in Senegal, the UN Security Council supported the efforts of States in West Africa in an attempt to send Jammeh to resign. The UN called on "all stakeholders, within and outside the Gambia to exercise restraint, respect the rule of law and ensure a peaceful transfer of power".

Troops from several West African countries were ready to intervene if Jammeh will not resign in the near future. Senegal, Ghana, Togo and Mali are among the countries that contributed to the war effort, while the Nigerian air force that will join forces with the Economic community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Barrow is waiting in Senegal, when the power will be transferred. In his first speech as leader, he welcomed the "victory of the Gambian nation." "Our national flag will now hang high up," he said. "The violence is over and gone forever from the lives of gambians do. There are no losers in this election. We pledge to unite our nation. Today the majority of gambians do combine to give Gambia a new start. Today, I am the President of all gambians do. "He promised to "respect the rule of law and fundamental freedoms", and promised "substantial democratic reforms".

And he urged the country's military to remain faithful: "I command all members of the armed forces remain in their barracks". Press Secretary barrow, of the Caliph Salla, said that the military "will have to decide whose side they are." Tens of thousands of people were forced to leave their homes in the Gambia for fear of political violence.
