WHY SUDAN IS VITAL FOR ISRAEL

Israel and Sudan agreed to sign a deal to normalize relations in the last few months as a part of what is referred to as the “Abraham Accords”. A year ago, this was considered hard and closer to impossible given that Khartoum was where the Arab League announced a declaration against the normalisation of relations with Israel in 1967. It was known to be the city of the three noes; “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with it.” The discussions about this deal mainly focused on the Sudanese side of the agreement. Its benefits are valid to a significant extent. But evidently, this deal is also crucial for Israel and can be considered a chance for securing billions of dollars’ worth of projects in the water and agriculture sectors. Most importantly, it is a game-changer for Israel’s security and regional outreach and influence.
