It comes in breach of a ceasefire and no-fly zone agreed more than a year ago.
Last week we filmed charred and blackened huts in several villages which had been recently set on fire by Janjaweed militiamen, confirming reports of an increase in attacks since the beginning of the year.
But in the village of Donkey Dreisa, south of Nyala, the damage was clear. Buildings had been reduced to rubble by bombardment which villagers told us came from Sudanese air force Antonov jets.
More 4 News was told that the attack on Donkey Dreisa on February 17th followed earlier aerial bombardment of villages near the town of Omgonya, also in South Darfur.
Hilary Benn MP, Secretary of State for International Development told More 4 News he was very concerned to hear the news.
"We were aware there had been attacks in Gereida in February but these are the first reports that I have heard that there may have been attacks from the air."
