Airstrikes were carried out overnight and this morning on the outskirts of the Sudanese capital Khartoum as the fighting, which has trapped civilians in a humanitarian crisis and displaced more than a million people, entered its sixth week.

Fighting between Sudan’s armed forces and the Rapid Support Forces paramilitary group has caused a breakdown in law and order, with looting blamed on the other. Stocks of food, cash and basic necessities are running low.

Airstrikes were reported by eyewitnesses in southern Amdurman and northern Bahri, the two cities across the Nile from Khartoum that form Sudan’s “triple capital”. Some of the raids took place near the state broadcaster building in Omdurman, witnesses said.

Eyewitnesses in Khartoum said the situation was relatively calm, although sporadic gunfire could be heard.

“Early this morning we had heavy artillery fire, the whole house was shaking,” Sanaa Hassan, 33, who lives in Omdurman’s al-Salha neighborhood, told Reuters by telephone.

The conflict, which began on April 15, has forced nearly 1.1 million people from their homes. About 705 people have been killed and at least 5,287 injured, according to the World Health Organization.

Talks in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, brokered by the United States and Saudi Arabia, have been inconclusive, and both sides have accused each other of violating multiple ceasefire agreements.

“It was scary, we were all hiding under our beds. What is happening is a nightmare,” he added.

In recent days, ground fighting has flared up again in the Darfur region, in the towns of Nyala and Zalenjei.

The two sides accused each other in statements late Friday night of sparking the fighting in Nyala, one of the country’s largest cities, which had enjoyed relative calm for weeks thanks to a locally negotiated truce.

A local told Reuters that this morning there were sporadic armed clashes near the city’s central market, near the armed forces headquarters. About 30 people have been killed in the fighting over the past two days, according to activists.
