Israeli delegation arrived on Wednesday in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, Israeli media revealed.
According to Israeli public broadcaster, Kan, the delegation traveled on board a plane that took off from Israel on Wednesday morning and made a brief stop in Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt, before resuming its way to Sudan.
The Saudi Al Arabiya news channel said that the “Israeli military delegation” was slated to meet with Sudan’s top general, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan.

Sudanese authorities have not officially commented on the report.
