KHARTOUM - A conference of influential Islamists in Sudan declared support for Palestinians in the conflict with Israel on Saturday, saying they were devoted to the cause regardless of the repercussions.

Last month, Sudanese officials blamed an Israeli airstrike for a blast at the country's biggest weapons factory in the capital Khartoum that killed four people. Israel has not commented on the accusation.

In turn, Israeli officials have accused Sudan of channeling weapons to Hamas in the Gaza Strip, where it launched a massive air campaign on Wednesday with the declared goal of deterring the Palestinian Islamist group from launching rockets that have plagued its southern communities for years.
