World Tribune: The Sudanese military has reported the arrival of two Iranian Navy ships. The Irnaian ships were said to have docked in Port of Sudan for refueling.“Sudanese civilians can visit and tour the Iranian ships during their stay,” Sudanese military spokesman Sawarmi Khaled Saad said.This marked the latest in regular Iranian Navy visits to Sudan, deemed a leading ally of Teheran. Israel and the United States have asserted that Iran sends weapons to the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip through Sudan.
In March 2014, the Israel Navy intercepted an alleged Iranian weapons ship in the Red Sea near Sudan. The navy later displayed captured missiles and other weapons with Iranian markings.
Teheran has insisted that its presence in the Red Sea focused on counter-piracy operations. In 2008, Somali pirates captured an Iranian cargo ship off the coast of Yemen.
