Israeli Attack on Sudanese Missile Plan a “Dry Run” for Iran Attack - Mehr

Iran’s Mehr News Agency, citing the Sunday Times, said Israeli attack on the Sudanese missile factory on Wednesday was a ‘dry run’ for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. A squadron of eight Israeli F-15 jets dropped four one-ton bombs on Yarmouk missile factory on the outskirts of Sudan's capital Khartoum.     

“A long-range Israeli bombing raid last week that was seen as a dry run for a forthcoming attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities has destroyed an Iranian-run plant making rockets and ballistic missiles in Sudan,” Sunday Times reported today. The Yamrouk facility reportedly produced Shahab missiles.

The attack occurred in the early morning of 24 October. Four of the F-15Is carried two one-ton bombs, escorted by four others – struck a gigantic Yamrouk missile site. The 2,400-mile return flight took the Israelis four hours, with the jets flying south along the Red Sea. The planes entered the Sudanese air space from the east to avoid Egypt’s missile defenses.

The F-15Is were refueled during the operations. Other Israeli aircraft equipped with anti-radar electronics dismantled the Sudanese early warning and air defense systems.

With the strong support and full back up of its life-term slave, the U.S., the air force of the Zionist Regime of Israel, which is said to be one of the most powerful ones in the world, could simply and easily strike and take out any, like as which had been done to those iraqi and syrian's suspected nuclear reactors back in 1981 and 2007 respectively without any fight back or retaliation from those(weak, hapless and defenceless of that time) poor states. And the latest one was an iranian-run plant making rockets and ballistic missiles in Sudan. All those strikes were without any warning, signal and even, rhetoric. Wow! I think it is scary enough.

But instead, the biggest of all of Israel's biggest problems is; when it comes to striking any of IRAN's peaceful nuclear energy installations, it will definitely come to a still and halt. WHY? Israel defense forces have been talking, planning and exercising of attacking Iran's for 33 long wasting years since the victory of the Islamic Revolution of IRAN with the oust of the U.S.'s closest puppet ally, the Shah of Iran, back in 1979. Finally, what comes out is the Israel's unstoppable long-term of 'beating the empty drums of war' against IRAN. Instead of that, Israel armed forces had been humiliately defeated and forcibly driven back into its own territory for the first time in history by a regular unit of Hezbollah army(backed and armed by some of IRAN's weaponry) sometime in July, 2006.

Question: The fact is; how such a very tiny little state which is almost unseen on the map of the world(while IRAN is too great to be seen) such as Israel to take on a hugh IRAN? IRAN has been described, considered and approved by some of those local and foreign defense analysts and experts across the globe, currently and previously, as a regional superpower and the most powerful nation, militarily, in the whole region of the Middle East(go to yahoo-youtube by typing : BBC-HARDTALK on Robert Baer)-That was 4 years ago(2008).

Let say that if the Islamic Republic of Iran's military power, might and capabilities is not that strong or powerful enough, one could simply imagine what would had happened to the sovereign state of IRAN. Whatever it is, the paranoid little Israel is not just afraid of IRAN's nuclear program and Sudan's missile plant, but, the most of all, is being frightened and haunted by its own self-created shadow. Sorry! if in case anyone gets angry with my own opinion.

*From the 'God's chosen people' to the 'God's damned nation'. This is what really is.

This is an act of war. Sudan has every right and would be morally justified, to retaliate. And still, the parasite zionist entity, its host the USA and the USA's poodles in the west try to claim that Iran "is a threat". It is perfectly clear, who the real threat in the middle east, is.

Why does the photo caption say "Somali"? This is reported as a factory in Sudan.

On Iran, the focus of this blog, I am surprised that the country was reportedly producing Shahab missiles in the Sudan, why? If anyone has studies this issue, please share your thoughts with us.

Nader, the claim of Iran producing weapons in Sudan sounds like convenient, western media bs, an excuse for this act of war against Sudan

mat---there's no reason (or very little) to describe Iran as 'God's damned nation'.

that's just not right to exaggerate so much.

Anon 12:43--- it certainly is an act of war and Sudan has every right to declare war upon whoever perpetrated the attack.

If, as suspected, it was Israel, President Field Marshal Omar Hasan Ahmad al-Bashir, one of the world's most wanted war criminals and a real sweetheart, should saddle up the camels and rode bravely forward
to Jerusalem.

After the war, the Israelis could offer, rather than occupying the place itself, to return the Sudan to Egypt, as an inducement for the Egyptians to re-incorporate Gaza.

Sudan is just a another filthy dictatorship.
And Iran should stop wasting its money in these places.
They've got money to waste in countries like Sudan,yet they have no money for our now defunct national Orchestra.
This regime has a suicidal agenda of making the Iranian nation into unwilling martyrs.

Would you be so happy if the Israeli pilots bombed your country?

Sudan becomes strategic partner of Iran. Iran can control strategic waterway's traffic in the Red Sea and have better "control" of the KSA.
