Sudanese officials on Friday criticized Israel for its alleged strike on an arms factory within Sudanese territory, with President Omar Hassan al-Bashir calling the attack "reckless" and Minister of Information Ahmed Belal Othman vowing "decisive steps" against Israeli interests, Kuwaiti news agency Kuna reported.
