The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement has roundly condemned Sudan’s interim government for agreement to normalize full diplomatic ties with Israel, saying authorities in the Northeast African state are stuck in the quagmire of treason and normalization with the Tel Aviv regime.

Hezbollah, in a statement released on Sunday, censured “the political and moral fall of the ruling authority in Sudan into the quagmire of betrayal and normalization with the Israeli enemy, which was preceded by a number of Arab states” – in reference to Israel’s recent normalization deals with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

“We consider such a treacherous and cheap step to be in the best interests of the Zionist regime and the United States. It will eventually result in the rapid collapse of the incumbent authority [in Sudan] before the eyes of the honorable Sudanese nation, who have a long history of struggle and will quash such a decision,” the Lebanese resistance movement pointed out.

Hezbollah then hailed the rallies, gatherings and protests staged by Sudanese people, in addition to the outright rejection of normalization with the Israeli regime by various political parties and dignitaries in the country.

“The treachery of some Arab countries and their normalization with the Zionist enemy will neither shake the resolve of the Palestinian people nor that of resistance movements in the region. They will adamantly refuse to recognize the regime, reject all forms of normalization and will remain on the path of resistance until Palestine is fully liberated,” the movement pointed out.

Separately, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh decried the normalization of ties between Sudan and Israel.

“Over the past few days, we have painfully witnessed the brotherly State of Sudan to get on the bandwagon of normalization with Israel. It is the Fall of the Century, which we did not want our brethren to plunge into,” Shtayyeh said at the beginning of the weekly cabinet meeting in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah on Monday.

The Palestinian prime minister added, “With every country joining the path of normalization, a new stone falls off from the crumbling Arab support wall and Israeli depots are filled new ammunition to kill our people and divest us of our legitimate rights.”

US President Donald Trump announced on Friday at the White House that Sudan and Israel had agreed to normalize relations.

Trump sealed the agreement in a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and Transitional Council Head Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, senior US officials said.


Sudan’s acting Foreign Minister Omar Gamareldin, however, said on Friday the accord will depend on approval from its yet-to-be formed legislative council.

It is unclear when the assembly will be formed under a power-sharing deal between the country’s military officers and civilians.
