Sudan accuses Israel of airstrike
Source: Associated Press


Sudan accused Israel Wednesday of being behind an airstrike against a car driving along the coast the night before, in a case believed to involve weapons smuggling to militants in Gaza.

Foreign Minister Ali Ahmed Karti said the attack in the Port Sudan area which killed two was "a flagrant Israeli aggression." He told journalists following his meeting with U.S. special envoy to Sudan, Princeton Lyman, that Israel was trying to make Sudan look like a sponsor of terror to keep it from being removed from the U.S. terrorism list.


Israeli defense analyst Alon Ben-David told The Associated Press that if it was an Israeli strike, it would most likely have been against weapons smugglers supplying Hamas.

"Now you can assume that if indeed Israel committed the strike and sent its fighter aircraft 1,500 kilometers (1,000 miles) away, that was a very high-value target," he said.
