Israeli Officials Hint at Role in Attacking Sudan Factory

Though officially the Israeli government is still refusing to comment on yesterday morning’s attack against an arms factory in the Sudanese capital city of Khartoum, several anonymous Israeli officials have been quoted suggesting that the attack was indeed their doing, adding that the attack was in “Israel’s interest” and that Israel had been operating in Sudan for “years.”
Yesterday’s attack set a key arms factory ablaze in the country, killing two people. The Sudanese government reported the factory was attacked by four Israeli warplanes which “came from the east.”
Anonymous Israeli officials claimed that the site was producing weapons that are smuggled into the Gaza Strip. Exactly why this would be the case is unclear, as Northern Africa is already awash in looted weapons from the Libya Civil War and wouldn’t seem to need to manufacture new ones just for Gaza.
Sudanese officials have denied the charges of being involved in arms smuggling are pressing the UN Security Council to formally condemn Israel for the attack. Such a resolution is almost certain to be vetoed by the United States, which traditionally vetoes any UN resolutions even hinting at criticism of Israeli aggression.
