Sudan Vows No Retreat From Supporting Hamas in Aftermath of Israeli 'Aggression'

Khartoum The speaker of the Sudanese parliament, Ahmad Ibrahim Al-Tahir, declared on Thursday that the Israeli attack on Al-Yarmook arms factory will not deter his country from continuing its support to the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas.

During an emergency meeting of the parliament's affairs committee in the capital Khartoum, Al-Tahir stressed that the "Israeli aggression" will not prevent Sudan from fulfilling its duties towards the causes of the Arab and African people.

"If Israel is targeting Sudan because of its stand on the side of the Palestinian resistance, then Sudan will continue down that road as dictated by the religion, history and fate it shares with the Palestinian people" he added.

Israel neither denied nor confirmed responsibility for the airstrike that Sudan says it caused the destruction of AL-Yarmook military factory in the capital Khartoum at the midnight of Tuesday, 23 October. But it is known that the Jewish state sees the Muslim east African country as an ally of its arch enemy Iran as well as a conduit for arms smuggling activities toward the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
