The Sudanese army has dismissed reports of foreign aerial attack against targets in Omdurman, a twin city of capital Khartoum.

"A moving object was detected over northern Omdurman, and the Sudanese anti-aircraft defenses fired at it," army spokesman Al-Sawarmy Khaled Saad was quoted by Al-Sudani newspaper as saying Wednesday.

"Air Defense commanders rushed to the site…and there was no sign of domestic or foreign attack," he said. "The situation is stable and there is cause for concern."

Saad's comments came after several media outlets had reported foreign aerial attacks on targets in Omdurman.
