Today, Saturday, Israeli media reported that Sudan agreed to the classification.Hezbollah“The Lebanese are a terrorist organization, as part of the peace agreement with Israel, which was announced after talks between US President Donald Trump, the head of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of the transitional government, Abdullah Hamdok, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“The Times of Israel” and “Yediot Aharonot” newspaper reported that an American source described him as saying that Sudan had “agreed to classify the pro-Iran party as a terrorist organization” even though the joint statement issued by the three countries did not mention this.
And Israeli media considered that if Sudan declares “Hezbollah” a terrorist organization, in exchange for the decision announced by President Trump to remove his name from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, this “would represent a fundamental shift for Sudan, which was a strong ally of Iran until 2016, and helped smuggle its name. Rockets and other weapons were targeted by Palestinian armed groups in the Gaza Strip, which prompted Israel to repeatedly bomb military installations in Sudan.
On Friday, US President Donald Trump signed a decision to remove Sudan from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, 27 years after Khartoum was placed on the list, and the Sovereignty Council in Sudan, commenting on the decision, stated that Sudan “witnessed a historic day.”
The United States of America and Israel are exerting efforts to persuade many countries around the world to designate “Hezbollah” a terrorist organization, including its political arm.
A source in the Sudanese government had confirmed to “Israel Today” newspaper, yesterday, Thursday, that 99% of the files related to the normalization agreement between Khartoum and Tel Aviv were agreed upon during the visit of the Israeli and American delegation to Khartoum the day before.
The source indicated that the agreement will constitute a historic opportunity for Sudan to restore its exhausted economy, as well as to develop solutions to face the social crises it is going through.
When the newspaper asked him about the rejection of the Palestinian Authority, and Hamas alike, to the agreement with Israel, the source indicated that “Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, for example, are better off than Sudan.”
