The presidential envoy arrived in Israel at the beginning of the week, the source said. There was no immediate confirmation from Israeli and Sudanese government spokespeople.

Sudan moved toward normalizing ties with Israel in 2020. Envoys have travelled between Israel and Sudan since then, though no official pact has yet been signed.

Sudan’s military is seen to have led the move toward Israel while civilian groups have been more reluctant about it. The Sudanese military seized power in the country on October 25, ending a partnership with civilian political parties that began after the army toppled Omar al-Bashir as Sudan’s ruler in 2019.
