The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah is denouncing alleged airstrikes on Sudan targeting weapons smugglers.

Sudan says it believes Israel carried out the airstrikes in the remote mountainous desert region of northeast Sudan last month. Khartoum officials have said the strikes hit trucks carrying weapons, possibly destined for the Palestinian militant Hamas group in the Gaza Strip.

In a statement issued Saturday, Hezbollah called the airstrikes a new Israeli crime and urged Arab leaders meeting in Qatar next week to craft a response denouncing them.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has hinted that Israel did launch the February strikes, vowing that it would hit "terror infrastructure" wherever it is.
