An Israeli passenger plane has landed at Khartoum airport in the Sudanese capital, Iranian media reported on Monday.
They have released the information citing multiple Israeli sources.
The news comes amid widespread speculation that Sudan could normalize relations with Israel, following in the footsteps of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
The Turkish news agency Anatolia quoted Israel’s Walla News as saying that a plane commonly used by senior Israeli officials had recently landed at Khartoum airport and left the airport a few hours later.
The Israeli plane was at Khartoum airport when US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke at a news conference about Sudan.
Sudan, meanwhile, has said it would not be right to link the removal from the blacklist to its relationship with Tel Aviv.
