Report: Israeli Jets Made Strike Inside Sudan

CBS reported that the IAF carried out the attack on a convoy of trucks in Sudan carrying arms for Hamas in the Gaza Strip. According to the report, 39 people riding in the 17-truck convoy were killed, while a number of civilians in the area were injured. (source

UPDATE: Israel hasn't confirmed it yet, but there is also reports that they attacked an Iranian ship as well

Following unconfirmed reports that Israel or the US attacked a convoy of trucks carrying weapons headed for the Gaza Strip in Sudan, a new report by Sudanese sources cited an additional strike on a ship possibly making its way to Sudan from Iran.

"There were indeed two strikes in Sudan, in January and February," Sudan's deputy transportation minister told Channel 10 on Thursday evening. "I cannot confirm that Israel or the US were behind the attack, but I know that the US controls the airspace there," he said.

"The second strike was against a ship at sea and it was completely destroyed," another Sudanese official said.

If this is true, this could really heat things up over there.

UPDATE II: I don't know why the western press haven't picked up on this yet.

UPDATE III: Finally something in the Guardian. Why did it take so long to report something that happened in January?
