WAR ON AFRICA; Sudan, Israeli Air Strike, Four Planes Bomb Khartoum’s Main Arms Factory, SUDAN THREATENS RETALIATION
Sudan’s Information Minister is speaking strong words of a retaliation, which is totally justifiable, however, the destruction of their main arms factory could leave them further exposed to the insurgency they’ve been fighting… probably the reason for the bombing.

The Sudanese government has blamed Israel for a strike on a Khartoum weapons plant, which killed two people and injured another.
Information Minister Ahmed Bilal Osman said four Israeli planes carried out the attack adding:
“We will take all the regular diplomatic procedures to clarify that and to approach the UN Security Council, but at the same time we reserve the right to respond in the place and the time we choose“.
The Israeli government has not responded to the accusation or commented on the blast. Analysts say Israel believes weapons are being smuggled through Sudan to Gaza.
