Deja vu all over again: IAF reported to have destroyed missiles bound for Hamas in Sudan

Now where have we heard this before? This is from the second link.
Sources in Khartoum claimed on Monday that Israeli forces struck a weapons arsenal which held long range missiles for Hamas.

The Arabic-language UK-based newspaper Al-Arab reported that the government in Sudan is not confirming the incident in order to cover up relations with the terrorist organization in Gaza. Such ties could entangle the country's president Omar al-Bashir with an accusation of supporting terrorism from the US and Western nations.

The attack came only hours after Israel accused the Sudanese government of storing long range missiles for Hamas.

Eye witnesses claimed to have seen a "huge explosion" and billows of smoke before ambulances and firefighters arrived at the scene. Six people were allegedly wounded in the attack.

Sudanese security forces stated that the huge explosion in a weapons arsenal was the result of a fire that broke out and took place on Friday morning in the al-Jili neighborhood of the capital.

The Sudanese Army Spokesman Khaled Sa'ad denied all connections in the incident to an attack by foreign forces.

Two weeks before the alleged Israeli strike, Sudan's President al-Bashir was seen meeting with Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal in Qatar.
Arutz Sheva adds:
According to the report, eyewitnesses said they saw a “huge explosion” after planes flew over the building. Six people were injured in the attack, witnesses said. The resulting blaze required the services of large numbers of firefighters, they added.
Sudanese officials confirmed that there was an explosion, but denied any connection to weapons or missiles. The officials did not accuse Israel of the attack, but did say that it was carried out by “foreign forces.”
There has been no independent confirmation of the story, which did not appear in any other publication. Israel has not commented on the story.
Hmmm.
