Sudanese army air strike kills at least 22 in Khartoum

A Sudanese army air strike on the country’s capital Khartoum has resulted in the deaths of at least 22 people and caused injuries to numerous others, according to officials.

Women and children were among the victims of the air strike.

Since April, the army and the RSF have been engaged in a conflict to gain control of the capital.

The dispute originated from a disagreement between the army’s leader, Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and the head of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), Gen Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, regarding the country’s future.

A health official from Khartoum state confirmed that the air strike resulted in a death toll of at least 22, while the RSF reported 31 fatalities.

The group released a video on Twitter of the aftermath of the strike.
