Israel has in fact operated as a destabilizer in Sudan for about 60 years.
Covered this aspect of Israel's African agenda previously here.
Timeline excerpt below.
We can say that Israel's support for the separatist movement in the south went through five stages which
Stage 1: throughout the 50's Israel concentrated on two things firstly giving (humanitarian aid to the
Stage 2: In the 60's the following happened: Israeli weapon deals started flowing to South Sudan through Uganda. The first deal was in 1962 and most of it was light Russian weapon that Israel stole from Egypt after the 1956 war, in addition to the Israeli Uzi....Fire rages at the state-owned Yarmouk military factory in southern Khartoum, Sudan
Stage 3: which extends from mid 60's till 70's, through it the flow of weapons continued through an Israeli mediator called "gabi shafeek". Also: Israel also established a school for ground soldiers in "wangi kabul??" to graduate cadets to lead the separatist groups.
Stage 4: The fourth stage extends from the late 70's and throughout the 80's and in it armed support started under the leadership of colonel Jon Qarnak, (Jon Qarnak is John Garang) starting from 83.
An Israeli intelligence official for the first time confirmed (nonsense) that the Israeli military operates in Sudan, just days after the government in Khartoum accused Israel of bombing an arms factory outside the capital.Israel’s friends are aware. Confirmed here
Israel officials never publicly confirm nor deny their country's involvement in overseas operations. But speaking anonymously to NPR, an Israeli intelligence officer says that Israel does -– most definitely –- operate in Sudan.
Like many Israeli officials, the intelligence officer refused to answer questions about international law and whether Israel routinely violates the sovereignty of a foreign state to carry out its military operations. ( you know they do)
But he said whatever the Israeli military may or may not do is shared with Israel's friends in the West.
The Times of Israel reports that the U.S. Embassy in Sudan was closed during the Wednesday explosion.
The US Embassy was closed when the explosion took place. Not a coincidence. I guess Israel does share with their ‘friends'. According to the main stream media this is supposed to be about militants and arms to Gaza.Or arms for Iran. Maybe? Or, perhaps something else? As suggested by the title a dry run for attacking Iran.
"Four military planes attacked the Yarmouk plant," Information Minister Ahmed Belal Osman told reporters in Khartoum, adding that the planes had appeared to approach the site from the east, Reuters reports.
Four planes from the east? Why four planes?
Would two be bombing and two supporting?
DEBKA. A piece that starts out with the main stream spin but then ends on an entirely different narrative and that the info I find the most relevant
If Indeed Israel was responsible for the bombing raid, it is possible to postulate the following objectives:Was this a trial run for an attack on the Fordo site in Iran?
1. Its air force flew 1,800-1,900 kilometers to reach the Sudanese arms factory, a distance longer than the 1,600 kilometers to the Iranian underground enrichment site of Fordo. This operation may have been intended to show Tehran that distance presents no obstacles to an Israeli strike on its nuclear program.
2. The IAF has an efficient in-flight refueling capability.
It does seem possible.
Israel has operated in Sudan for so long now, it would make sense that Israel has ample operatives, soldiers, useful idiots, whatever- on the ground, in Sudan. They would not need to undertake a risky fly by/fly over bombing.
The same applies to weapons into Gaza, operatives on the ground could prevent them from getting to Gaza.
Additionally anytime some nearly useless rockets is fired from Gaza, Israel is provided with the pretext to pummel the Gazans in general and carry out a slew of targeted strikes. One would wonder why Israel would bother to block weapons from getting into Gaza?
A dry run, or practice attack, seems more plausible a reason for this airstrike then denying weapons to Iran or Gaza.
