SAGAING DIVISION – Civilians in Kani are fleeing because it has been reported that the junta council might carry out airstrikes in Kani Township.
Starting from Saturday (May 20) at 2:30 a.m., civilians from Chaung Ma, Min Ma, and Thamin Chan Villages have been fleeing with the rumor that the junta might carry out airstrikes.
“The rumor is spreading that the junta council might carry out airstrikes on schools and villages. That’s why the civilians are fleeing, and it was more intense in the morning,” said a resident.
The junta carried out airstrikes on Min Ma Village in Kani Township on May 14 and on Chaung Ma Village on May 16, completely demolishing schools and causing significant damage.
“We didn’t have any casualties when the junta council carried out airstrikes on the schools. They might have thought PDF comrades were stationed at the school and carried out airstrikes. All the schools were completely destroyed,” said a resident.
