Sudan says Israel bombed a weapons factory overnight, killing two people.
Sudanese officials originally said the explosion took place inside the facility near a residential area in southern Khartoum. But by afternoon, officials announced that the blast came after four airplanes flew overhead. A resident told CNN he saw two planes and a flash of light coming from them, followed by the sounds of rockets being fired.
“We think Israel did the bombing… to weaken the sovereignty of Sudan and its political will," Information Minister Ahmed Bilal told journalists.
The Israeli military told CNN it had no comment on the accusations.
Sudan has previously blamed Israel for attacks on smugglers bringing weapons into Gaza for use in attacks against Israel.
Meanwhile, as dozens of Palestinian rockets rained down on southern Israel today, the country's air force carried out new raids on positions in Gaza.
