Fighting between rival Sudanese forces including air strikes on the capital Khartoum have killed at least 33 civilians,  AFP reported citing a lawyer group.

Sudan has been gripped by nearly nine months of conflict pitting army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan against his former deputy, paramilitary commander Mohamed Hamdan Daglo.

According to a conservative estimate by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project, the United Nations says more than seven million people have been displaced.

On Thursday, 23 civilians were killed and several more wounded by aerial bombing in south Khartoum’s Soba district, the Emergency Lawyers group said, accusing the army which maintains control of the skies.

The lawyer group confirmed 10 other deaths in artillery strikes, also in southern Khartoum.

The focus of the conflict, which erupted in mid-April in the capital, has shifted south and recently reached Sudan’s Al-Jazira state where hundreds of thousands of people had sought refuge.
