In a clash with villagers armed with catapults and crossbows in the Ayeyarwady river delta region, Myanmar Junta forces are said to have killed 20 people. If verified, the number of deaths would record one of the country’s bloodiest days in nearly two months.
On Saturday, villagers tried to resist when soldiers violently attacked them in what they asserted was a search for arms, according to Khit Thit Media and the Delta News Agency.
Twenty people were murdered and more were badly hurt, according to Khit Thit Media and the Delta News Agency.
Since the army tried to overthrow the country’s democratically elected government on February 1, a local monitoring group researchers estimate that 845 civilians have been murdered by the Myanmar Junta forces.
According to a resident who spoke on the assault, he said
Three “terrorists” were killed and two were apprehended at Hlayswe, according to state television news, as security officers attempted to seize a guy charged of plotting against the state.
Security forces were attacked with compressed air weapons and darts, according to MRTV state television. Three attacker’s bodies were discovered after the gunfight, according to the report.
A junta spokesperson did not respond to the request for information on the local violence.
