Hundreds of Sudanese have
staged a demonstration in the capital Khartoum to protest against an airstrike
on a weapons factory blamed on Israel.
On Wednesday night, the protesters chanted slogans against the Israeli regime and the United States, such as "Death to Israel" and "Remove Israel from the map."
The demonstration was staged after Sudanese Culture and Information Minister Ahmed Bilal Osman said that four Israeli warplanes had attacked a weapons factory in Khartoum earlier in the day, killing at least two people.
In response to a question about the attack, Israeli Minister for Military Affairs Ehud Barak said, "There is nothing I can say about this
Sudan also called on the United Nations Security Council to condemn Israel for violating the country’s sovereignty.
Sudanese Ambassador to the UN Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman referred to the attack as a "blatant violation" of the UN charter and demanded condemnation from the global body.
In May, Khartoum blamed Israel for a deadly attack that destroyed a car and killed a businessman in Port Sudan.
Sudan also blamed Israel for another deadly missile attack on a car near Port Sudan in April 2011.
The Tel Aviv regime, however, has neither denied nor confirmed its involvement in these incidents.
