Alliance of Sahel States

Wikipedia short information

The Alliance of Sahel States (AoSS; also known as AES in French) is a mutual defense pact created between Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso on 16 September 2023. The pact was created during the 2023 Nigerien crisis in which the West African political bloc ECOWAS threatened to intervene militarily to restore civilian rule after a coup in Niger earlier that year.
The alliance's stated goal is to protect against possible threats of armed rebellion or external aggression by emphasizing that "any attack on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of one or more contracted parties will be considered an aggression against the other parties."

Not to be confused with the Sahel-Alliance - these is a development oriented organisation.
