Several Arab media outlets attributed the airstrikes to Israel, which did not comment on the reports.

The Israeli military has reportedly carried out several strikes in Sudan in recent years as part of an effort to combat the flow of weapons from Iran to the Gaza Strip. The targets of Tuesday night’s reported strikes were said to include a Scud missile factory, a rocket storage site, and a convoy.

Witnesses reported hearing explosions and secondary blasts. There were also reports that the Sudanese forces fired anti-aircraft weapons at the attacking aircraft. A number of reports quoted Sudanese military as saying that no airstrikes took place, but that an Israeli drone was shot down.
