According to Arab media reports, the Israel Air Force attacked a weapons storage facility in the area of Khartoum, Sudan. The attacked reportedly took place during the night, Tuesday to Wednesday 17 Iyar 5775.
The al-Arabi al-Jadid report states anti-aircraft weapons were used against the fighter planes that penetrated Sudanese airspace. Local residents report they heard two loud explosions, apparently from a weapons manufacturing facility which produces advanced weaponry including long-range missiles.
In July 2014, during Operation Protective Edge, a large explosion resulted in the destruction of a weapons plan in northern Khartoum. Sudanese officials reported there was a fire in the building but some Arab media reports pointed to Israeli involvement.
