Five children were killed in air attacks during the Sudan crisis.
According to officials, an air attack on Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, killed seventeen people, including five children.
The Saturday strike in the densely populated Yarmouk area burned 25 homes.
It happened just a day after a top army commander promised to intensify attacks on the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces.
Fighting broke out in mid-April between the Sudanese army and the RSF as a result of a brutal power struggle inside the country’s military leadership.
According to a doctors’ organization, about 1,000 civilians have been murdered and many more have been injured.
Several ceasefires have been declared in order to allow people to flee the fighting, but they have not been enforced.
According to the RSF, the recent attack targeted people in the Mayo, Yarmouk, and Mandela neighborhoods. The army has not responded.
Tens of thousands of civilians have fled across the border into neighboring Chad since the crisis began.
Doctors and hospitals in the area have been overburdened and are battling to keep up.
The battle has also rekindled a two-decade-old conflict in Sudan’s western Darfur region.
