Sudan's paramilitary group Rapid Support Forces (RSF) alleges it has shot down two military helicopters in a reprisal attack against the army.

The group said the army attacked its fighters in Omdurman, near the capital Khartoum on Thursday morning despite the truce announced on Wednesday.

"But the forces responded to the attack and inflicted heavy losses on the putschists in lives and equipment, including the shooting down of two helicopters," the RSF said in a statement posted on Twitter.

The paramilitary group said it remained committed to the ceasefire.

The army is yet to comment on RSF attack claims.
