Israel stuck a warehouse in Sudan housing long-range missiles heading for Hamas in Gaza, according to a London-based Arabic newspaper.

Al-Arab quoted unnamed sources in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, as saying that Israel bombed an ammunition warehouse last Friday located north of the capital. Sudanese officials had claimed the explosion was caused by a local fire, according to reports.

Israel’s military has not responded to the allegations.

Israel carried out three airstrikes in western Sudan in 2009, on a convoy reportedly carrying weapons to Gaza. Israel is also blamed for a 2012 explosion in a weapons plant in Khartoum, which reportedly was building weapons for Hamas.
