Sudan’s paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) group has accused the country’s army of “air-bombing the French embassy” in the capital city.
In a long post on X, formerly known as Twitter, the RSF said the alleged bombing caused “substantial damage to the facility”.
“The Rapid Support Forces (RSF) vehemently denounces the indiscriminate aerial attack on the French embassy,” it said.
“This ruthless act is a breach of international conventions, norms, and laws. We urgently call upon the international community to condemn this atrocity.”
Neither Sudan’s army nor France commented on the allegation.
The six-month-long war between the RSF and the army has killed 9,000 people and displaced nearly six million others, according to the UN.
In April, a French national was wounded in an attack on a convoy that the warring sides blamed on each other.
Meanwhile, the RSF said yesterday that it had killed more than 500 soldiers in an attack on a military convoy in Khartoum’s twin city of Omdurman, including “volunteers recently recruited by the army”.
