Israel Radio has just reported (6:00 pm news) that according to al-Arabiya, the passenger in the car that was targeted this morning in Port Sudan was the head of Hamas' weapons acquisition. His name was not given. The driver was a local Sudanese national.
Israel Radio said that there was no other confirmation for the report.
There has been speculation in the international media that Israel carried out a targeted assassination in Sudan earlier today.
It would seem that the head of Hamas' weapons acquisition would be the man who replaced Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. Mabhouh was allegedly liquidated by Israel in Dubai in January 2010.
