Sudan on Wednesday complained that a plane belonging to the Ethiopian military plane violated its airspace, issuing a warning that such a move is likely to raise tension between the two borders.

The accusation by Sudan comes a day after it claimed that Ethiopia killed at least six people at the border after it attacked its territories.

“In a serious and unexcused escalation, an Ethiopian military plane has violated the Sudanese-Ethiopian borders. The matter would add more tension to the already troubled joint borders,” said the Sudanese Foreign Ministry.

As a result, the ministry through its statements called upon the government of Ethiopia to desist from such hostile actions in future. The ministry added that such an act would pose severe consequences in the ties between the two countries, which has the potential of interfering with the Horn of Africa’s peace and stability.

In the meantime, a military helicopter belonging to Sudan crashed before it exploded at the military airport in El-Gedaref state which is near the Ethiopian border. This news of helicopter crash was confirmed by Sudan’s news agency SUNA on Wednesday, stating that all the crews survived. The plane crashed shortly after it took off from Wad Zayed airport.

The news agency further revealed that General Abdul Fatah Alburhan, the head of Sudanese Sovereign Council paid a visit to the border of the two countries in a bid to inspect the Sudanese military there.
