AN: Sittway. June 27, 2020.
Myanmar army’s Light Infantry Division 66 fired artilleries and shells into De La Nat Maw village in Ann Township at 7 pm last night and killed two civilians and wounded 3 villagers, including a 2 years old girl.
Local residents reported the army fired the artilleries and shells into the village at 7 pm for about an hour. They said there was no military clash near the village but only the government army firing the shells.
Ba Maung,67, was killed on the spot, and Nyunt Aye, 42, died at 11 pm for critical injury in the village.
Chan Tin, 59, was injured on his stomach, and 36 years old woman Hla May’s left leg was broken. Two years old girl Nya Mhwe Pan was hit in her rib.
The curfew laws prevented the wounded patients to transport to the hospital in Ann. They were treated in the village even though they were critically wounded.
Civilian casualties are getting higher in this months. Several villagers were also wounded in Rathedaung township in this week by the Myanmar army shells and artilleries.
Local people say the military is targeting and killing civilians after they lose war against Arakan Army.
