Sudan’s army has claimed that it has shot down an Israeli drone following reports that Israeli warplanes have pounded sites around the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV reported.
The Israeli drone was shot down in the area of Wadi Seidna, to the north of Khartoum, on Wednesday, the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV quoted the Sudanese army as saying.
The development came after reports said earlier in the day that Israeli fighter jets had bombarded a factory, claimed to be making long-range Scud missiles, a rocket storage site and a convoy that was leaving the site.
There are no immediate reports on the extent of the damage or the number of casualties caused by the air raids.
A spokesperson for the Sudanese army has reportedly denied that Sudanese military sites were targeted in the air assaults.
