    Sudanese media report on Israeli air strikes

    The Israel Air Force struck two weapons convoys traveling in Sudan on their way to the Gaza Strip over the past month. According to the reports, denied by the Sudanese armed forces, the planes attacked a convoy of jeeps in eastern Sudan last week killing a number of people. Another strike reportedly took place earlier in the month against a truck near the border with Egypt, and in a third incident a helicopter was reported to have been spotted over an island near Sudan. While Israel has never confirmed nor denied its involvement in any of the air strikes, the Israeli navy has been reported to be operating more frequently in the Red Sea in recent years as part of Israeli efforts to curb Iranian arms smuggling to Hamas and Hezbollah.
