In blaming Israel of killing two men riding in a Hyundai Sinai on April 5th near Port Sudan, Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ali Karti said that a missile strike was carried out from a ship on the Red Sea or an aerial drone. Intelligence sources, however, have revealed that a special operations squad landed via the sea and made use of a surface missile for hitting the vehicle and killing two key members of the Hamas-Iranian weapons smuggling network based in Sudan. The group is believed to be one of the most ruthless and largest in the region. Its long and shadowy history goes back to the 80s and 90s when it aided Al Qaeda.
