Times of Israel: Sudan denies attack after ‘foreign’ planes said to hit military site

Witnesses claim jets hitting area near Khartoum may have been Israeli, but army spokesman says no strike, though anti-aircraft fire used on object in sky

Officials and residents of the Sudanese city of Omdurman said foreign warplanes struck a military installation nearby late Tuesday night, a London-based Arabic news outlet reported early Wednesday.

However, a Sudanese army spokesperson denied that any Sudanese facilities had been struck, confirming only that anti-aircraft fire had been directed against an object in the sky.

Witnesses in Omdurman said they saw and heard large explosions at a military site near the city, which sits across the Nile River from the capital Khartoum, the Al-Araby news outlet reported.
