A group of 121 Indians who were stranded in Sudan due to the ongoing conflict in the country, were flown out in a commando-style operation, according to reports. The operation, which was carried out by the Indian Air Force, involved landing a C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft on a makeshift runway in the desert.
The Indian citizens had been stranded in Sudan for several weeks due to the deteriorating security situation in the country. The Indian government had been working to evacuate them, but their efforts were hampered by the lack of a functional airport in the capital city of Khartoum.
The decision was made to carry out the operation using a transport aircraft that could land on a makeshift runway in the desert. The aircraft, which was flown by a team of highly trained commandos, landed on the makeshift runway at night, under the cover of darkness.
The 121 Indians were then escorted to the aircraft by the commandos, who had been trained in the art of close protection. The operation was carried out with the utmost secrecy, with the Indian government not revealing details of the operation until after it had been completed.
Speaking to reporters, one of the passengers who was on board the flight said that the experience was like something out of a Hollywood movie. “It was like a scene from a movie. We were taken to the aircraft in the dead of night, under the watchful eye of the commandos. It was an incredible experience,” he said.
The successful operation has been hailed as a major achievement for the Indian government, which has been working to evacuate its citizens from conflict zones around the world. The Indian Air Force has been praised for its professionalism and skill in carrying out the operation.
The situation in Sudan remains tense, with the country still grappling with the aftermath of a civil war that has left thousands dead and displaced millions. The Indian government has advised its citizens to avoid traveling to the country until the situation improves.
