Sudan calls on UNSC to condemn ‘Israeli attack’

Sudan on Wednesday called on the UN Security Council to condemn Israel after it accused the Jewish State of carrying out an airstrike in the country, causing a huge explosion and fire at an arms factory in Khartoum that killed two people, The Jerusalem Post reports. Sudan, which analysts say is used as an arms-smuggling route to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip via neighboring Egypt, has blamed Israel for such strikes in the past, but Israel has either refused to comment or said it neither admitted nor denied involvement. Asked by Channel 2 news about Sudan’s accusations, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said: “There is nothing I can say about this subject.” Amos Gilad, top aide to Defense Minister Ehud Barak, also refused to comment on the incident, but referred to Sudan’s role in “assisting terrorism,” Army Radio reported Thursday. A huge fire broke out late on Tuesday at the Yarmouk arms factory in the south of the capital which was rocked by several explosions, witnesses said.
