Sudanese media accuses Israel of attacking convoy


Israel’s Air Force allegedly attacked weapons convoys traveling from Sudan to the Gaza Strip, Sudanese media reported.

The two convoys reportedly were smuggling Iranian weapons to Gaza earlier this month when they were hit by war planes. At least two people were killed and several wounded in the strikes, according to the reports.

Israel has not responded to the reports, which have been denied by the Sudanese army.

Sudan’s foreign minister in April blamed Israel for a bombing attack on a car near the country’s port city that killed two. Israel also was accused in 2009 of a deadly strike on a convoy of trucks in eastern Sudan suspected of being arms smugglers transporting weapons bound for Gaza.
