Israel Conducts Air Strike On Sudan Missile Base In 'Dry Run' For Iran Attack

Tyler Durden's picture

This past Wednesday, nobody reported that a squadron of 8 Israeli F-15 jets dropped 4 two-ton bombs on the giant Yarmouk missile factory on the outskirts of Sudan's capital Khartoum. Which is just as Israel wanted it. Because what otherwise would be a provocative incursion tantamount to war (if only Sudan wasn't a complete basket case of a country), was really nothing short of a dry-run for an Israeli attack on Iran. At least according to the Sunday Times. "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.... The raid, in which two people died, triggered panic across the city. Witnesses said they heard a series of loud blasts followed by the sound of ammunition exploding. “It was a double impact — the explosion at the factory and then the ammunition flying into the neighbourhood,” said Abd-al Ghadir Mohammed, 31, a resident. "The ground shook. Some homes were badly damaged." And... nobody cares. Here we leave it up to readers to imagine the epic horror, deep revulsion that would greet news that Iran had conducted a pre-emptive strike against Israel by blowing up a missile factory in Turkey, killing two innocent people, just to make sure it can.

A visual summary of the attack:

This is what was left of the Somali factory after the Israeli self-appointed (because national borders are for chumps) punishment force was done with it:

And the full post-mortem of the operation that took place 4 days ago, via Voice of Russia:

The attack occurred in the early morning of October 24, when eight Israeli F-15I jets – four of them carrying two one-ton bombs, escorted by four fighters – struck a gigantic Yamrouk missile site. The evidence is that this strike is a general rehearsal before the Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities.

 

According to western defense sources, 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 anti-Iranian operation kicked off two years ago when Mossad agents murdered a Palestinian businessman and a HAMAS highflyer, Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh, in a Dubai hotel suit, retrieving a suitcase with a military agreement between Iran and Sudan, wherein Khartoum offered Tehran its military sites to make weapons.

 

The Yamrouk facility produced Shahab ballistic missiles, which were then to be delivered to HAMAS rebels in the Gaza strip and other Middle Eastern regions.

In other words: add the Israeli invasion of Iran on the "To Do" list, alongside Grexit, the official Spanish bailout request, the Chinese Congress, the Japan-China territorial re-escalation, sliding down the Fiscal Cliff, and the debt ceiling breach, as soon as possible after the November 6 election.

And all that, of course, assuming Sky Net does not finally take over tomorrow when only robots will be left trading.

Let's think about this Curt.  

Iran conspires with Sudan to build missiles to be delivered to sworn enemies of Israel, who are actively launching missiles and mortars into Israel but somehow you conclude that  it is Israel who is trying to tear the world apart?

Did you read the frigging article?  Now the paper that the article was in is not known as a pro-Israeli rag and in fact tried to spin it against Israel as an act in preparation of an attack on Iran.

Where/when is it ok for a country to defend itself?  Must one wait for the bombs to fall?  Of course not, that is why we (Americans) go after Al Qaeda where ever we can find them.  Killing them before they bring terror to our shore is just smart proactive defense.  What Israel is doing is no different.

'merika's proactive defense policy is about as effective as its proactive (QE) finance policy. How's that working out for ya.

Do you really think we would be better off if we left Biden Laden alone to operate with a free hand, rather then running to ground and killing him?

Perhaps you think that Jonssøn Quisling was the greatest politician of all time too?

Is that a rhetorical question?

 

Yeah; there would be thousands less dead Americans, and tens of thousands less disabled, traumatised and suicidal; Trillions less in debt crippling the next generation; less enemies created by killing roughly 1,000,000 Iraqi's, and tens of thousands of Afghan citizens which all came as a result of the Iraq/Afghanistan package deal that was justified by 9/11; America has lost it's international prestige and it's intentions now questioned due to the debacle surrounding WMD's and outright lies to get into a war.

 

The Taliban is still in Afghanistan, Iraq is not even a US friendly puppet state, your government is now on the side as Al-Qaeda in Syria - the same people they sacrificed all the above in order to destroy.

 

How anyone can ask what you asked with a straight face is beyond laughable, it's sad.

Hamas fired missiles at the Dimona reactor in retaliation for the Sudan bombing....with no effect, as usual. Much like the impotent outrage of the anti-Israel group here.

Too bad there is not a God, or He would of course hear the wailings of the innocent and punish the guilty. Unfortunately, the Arabs tend to be more interested in killing each other than getting their anti-Israeli act together.

Pathetic.

Seriously? If you lived in L.A. and you knew Canada was building missiles for Mexico so they could carry out their myriad threats to blow up L.A. and you could stop it by "pre-emptively" blowing up the missile factory in Canada, would you do it? If you say "no," you're a lying douchbag. Or you have no loved ones in L.A. and don't consider them worth saving.

If I lived in LA, and knew Canada was building missiles for Mexico so they could defend themselves from the ongoing threats of imminent attack from LA, I would leave LA with my loved ones.  I would not condone any form of pre-emptive attacks, nor would I tolerate fear mongering on behalf of my LA government.

Isn't it amazing all the problems that shitty little tribe and that corrupt, hellhole of a country cause worldwide?!? Drug running, illegal nukes, assassinations, illegal organ harvesting, spying, money laundering, the list goes on and on.

If Israel DOES attack Iran, Iran has the right to retaliate against ALL Jews worldwide. And hopefully, they take out millions of the parasitic bastards!

None of these things were done before 1948?

RichardP's picture

Something other than Israel is the cause of the problems listed - since they existed before Israel did.

I guess they will have to take out all the Saudis as well:

 

The west tends to assume that the Muslim world hates the Jews more than those who practice opposing strains of Islam. In reality, when the rubber meets the road, alliances with Israel can be far more pragmatic, which contributes to the credibility of this report.

Via Fars News Agency:

A report by a well-known journalist revealed that Saudi Arabia has provided financial backup for the Israeli Mossad agency’s terror operations on Iran’s nuclear scientists.

The collaboration between Mossad and Riyadh was unveiled by Barry Lando in an article titled “A Strange Alliance: Are the Saudis Bankrolling Israel’s Mossad?”

Barry M. Lando, a graduate of Harvard and Columbia University, spent 25 years as an award-winning investigative producer with 60 Minutes. His latest book is “Web of Deceit: The History of Western Complicity in Iraq, from Churchill to Kennedy to George W. Bush.”

If there was a country Iran hated more than Israel, it’d be Saudi Arabia (and vice versa).

Should Iran acquire nuclear weapons, Saudi Arabia could be in more danger than Israel.

You are correct zen0. Israel/Jordan/Saudi Arabia have more to coordinate/cooperate on then otherwise. The only issue is that at the moment it has to be done behind the scenes since the regimes in th earab world have demonized israel for so long, they can't reverse their public stance so easily.

But if more Arabs are brave like this guy then finally maybe things will improve.

At the moment I will be happy that the enemy of my enemy is my friend (at least behind closed doors for now).

Lastly, the acid drop, is when you find a ledge, like a curb or drop of some sort, approach the ledge good cheap northface warm enough straight on, then lift your front wheel off the ground just before you cross over the ledge and ride a manual until you drop off the ledge.
