Israel, meanwhile, isn’t saying much of anything.
Israel has maintained official silence over Sudan’s assertion that the Israeli military destroyed a Khartoum weapons factory.

However, at least one Israeli defense official is saying Sudan is arming terrorists with Iranian aid.

And even Al-Arabiya mentions the possibility.

Also percolating through the Twitterverse is a report from the Israeli outlet Ynet that Israel may have staged a drone strike on a Sudanese munitions convoy in September.

Sooooooo, the plot thickens, and it’s looking like Sudan may be a bigger front in the Israel-Iran drama than previously thought. It should be interesting to see how this plays out.
In another (not) shocking development, anti-Israel forces are developing a case of amnesia regarding Sudan’s brutal human rights record. Here’s a refresher, but be advised: It’s a long, long, long read.
Instead, anti-Israel tweeters spent last night and today railing against Israel and pretending that Sudan is just another peaceful country.
Gee what are the odds that Israel would violate sovereign airspace and bomb a sovereign state. All the time. albawaba.com/news/sudan-cla…
