Sudanese Conflict: 22 Killed in Fresh Airstrikes

According to a report, an airstrike in the city of Omdurman, Sudan, has resulted in the deaths of at least 22 people and left dozens injured.

The Sudanese Ministry of Health confirmed these casualties in a statement. The Rapid Support Forces (RSF), a paramilitary group, also issued a statement on Saturday claiming that more than 31 people were killed, with homes destroyed and numerous civilians injured in the attack.

Expressing their condemnation, the RSF denounced the severe bombing carried out by aircraft on innocent citizens residing in various residential neighborhoods on Saturday morning. They urged activists both within Sudan and abroad to fulfill their responsibilities by monitoring and documenting the daily killings committed by the coup d’étatists and the ruling system.

Officials report that clashes between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and RSF began in April, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of people and injuries to thousands more. Consequently, parts of the capital city, Khartoum, have become war zones.
