Sudan: Israeli Attack Destroys Stacks of Iranian Military Ordnance - SD2015/0507001

Israel has conducted a series of aerial attacks in Sudan using warplanes escorted by long-range UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). The attacks occurred during the dawn hours of Wednesday, 6th May 2015. The UAVs used their inbuilt night vision capabilities to precisely mark the targets thus ensuring that the missiles fired from the warplanes homed in on their targets. The attacks were aimed at a targeted convoy ferrying military hardware; and, a weapons facility in Omdurman. The convoy was struck by missiles as it traversed Omdurman.

The military hardware originated from Iran and was destined to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Iran has a history of roping in third parties - in this case, the Sudan - into its illegal state-sanctioned international weapons smuggling ring.
Sudan - through Colonel Al-Soarami Khaled Saad - claims to have downed an Israeli drone though no independent confirmation has been made. Sudan claims that the drone was shot down at the Valley of the Prophet area.

The Government of Sudan, itself dominated by Salafist members of the National Congress Party (the political front for the Sudanese branch of the Muslim brotherhood), has consistently fostered and bankrolled Islamic terrorism across Uganda, Central African Republic (CAR), Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia, Chad and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
