Iran slams Israeli airstrike on Sudan

By Trend

Iran has denounced an Israeli airstrike on an arms factory in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, saying the aggressive act runs counter to international regulations and violates the national sovereignty and territorial integrity of the African country, PressTV reported.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Thursday that the “unjustifiable” move by the Israeli regime emanates from its brutal nature and warned that it would escalate tensions in the region.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran, while reminding regional organizations and the bodies supervising the maintenance of international peace and security of their responsibility in this regard, calls on them to adopt a proper stance, fulfill their heavy responsibility against the blatant aggression and prevent its repetition in the future,” he added.

The Iranian spokesperson urged regional countries to remain vigilant and take firm stances against the Israeli regime’s aggression against a Muslim country and a member of the Arab League.

On Wednesday, Sudanese Minister of Information Ahmed Belal Osman said that four Israeli military planes had attacked a weapons factory in Khartoum earlier in the day.

He added that the aircraft hit the Yarmouk Complex, south of Khartoum, set off a huge blast and killed at least two people.

Sudan called on the United Nations Security Council to condemn the Israeli regime for violating the country’s sovereignty.
