Baku-APA. Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir has called Israel the country’s number one enemy and repeated Khartoum’s assertion that Tel Aviv carried out an October airstrike on an arms factory in the Sudanese capital, APA reports quoting Press TV.

"Israel is our enemy, our number one enemy, and we will continue calling Israel our enemy," he said in Riyadh where he has received medical treatment, AFP reported on Thursday.

On October 24, Sudan’s Minister of Information Ahmed Bilal Osman said that four Israeli warplanes attacked the factory, killing at least two people.

Hundreds of Sudanese staged a demonstration in Khartoum on the same day to condemn the strike.

Sudan has also asked the United Nations Security Council to condemn Israel for violating the country’s sovereignty and bombing the factory, but the 15-member council has so far failed to take any action.

The Tel Aviv regime has refused to comment on the incident. Israeli Minister for Military Affairs Ehud Barak has said that there is “nothing I can say about this subject.”

On October 26, the Sudanese president said that “the reckless behavior is a manifestation of Israel’s concerns and nervousness about the political and social upheavals in the region and about the progress in Sudan.”

He added that “such aggressive acts by the Zionist entity could never force Khartoum to change its policies.”
