The Sudanese Minister of Information and official government spokesman, Ahmed Belal Osman considers an alleged Israeli attack that blew up sections of the AL Yarmok factory, a “kickoff of the war of waters”.
At the same time, the minister denied Israeli allegations that the factory has links with Hamas and Iran, describing them as “patently false”. He said the Israel attack aim to weaken Sudan and subsequently support its insurgents.
In a statement issued to the press by the Sudanese Parliament condemning the unjust and unwarranted Israeli attack on Yarmouk factory on October 24, it was said that the attack was in deliberate violation of international law and the country’s sovereignty.
The statement continued: “This attack will not change the Sudanese stand which in principle considers Israel an aggressing state which occupied land that does belong to it, displaced people who were once secure, and seized Muslim and Christian holy shrines.”
“We commend the Sudanese Armed Forces on their impeccable conduct and performance and alert selflessness in Sudan’s defense. The Sudanese people are unanimously behind you in the face of this aggression, and all aggressions and this attack will not sway them from being in solidarity with the people of Palestine in their struggle to retrieve their occupied land and supporting the Palestinian resistance until it realises its legitimate goals.”
Speaker of the Sudanese Parliament Ahmed Ibrahim Al-Tahir condemned the attack and described the damage brought on the factory as “big and one that lessened Sudanese abilities.”
He denounced the repeated blatant and stark Zionist aggressions on the country, ranging from supporting rebel movements to supplying them with arms and equipment and harboring them.
He said the Israelis targeted Sudan for its high potential and out of fear that Sudan will affect their national security.
Israel neither confirmed nor denied responsibility for the attack.
