Israeli delegation secretly arrived in Sudan after military coup: Report
In a stunning revelation, an Israeli regime delegation reportedly visited Sudan in the past week, after the overthrow of the civilian-led transitional government led by Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.
According to reports, the delegation comprising members of Israel’s notorious spy agency Mossad met with Sudan’s military leaders, including Gen. Abdel Rahim Hamdan Dagalo, a senior official of the Rapid Support Forces, a Sudanese paramilitary force that staged a coup d'état against Hamdok on Oct. 25.
The Times of Israel in a report claimed that the Israeli delegation’s visit to Sudan was aimed at getting “a better impression” of the situation in the North African country and how it “might impact efforts to finalize an agreement to normalize relations” between Khartoum and Tel Aviv.
It has led to speculation that the coup could have been engineered by the Tel Aviv regime to have a friendlier ruler in Khartoum.
Sudanese military led by coup leader Gen. Abdel Fattah Burhan seized power last week, after detaining Hamdok and other civilian leaders and dissolving the year-old transitional government as well as the ruling joint military-civilian sovereign council.
He also declared a state of emergency and vowed to form what he called a competent government.
The move drew anger and outrage across the North African country and sparked international outcry, including from the UN Security Council. Protests have been underway for the second week in row.
While the coup has been censured everywhere, the regime in Tel Aviv has chosen to be silent. Experts see it as an approval of the Sudanese military’s actions by the Israeli regime.
