Junta force sponsored groups have torched the houses of three National League for Democracy (NLD) members in Saw Phyar Village, Thayet Chaung Township.
On the afternoon of December 11th, nearly fifty personnel of the junta and Pyu Saw Htee group raided and conducted searches for People Defense Force (PDF) in Saw Phyar Village. As they did not find any PDF in the village, they opened fire and torched some houses.
“Around fifty forces of soldiers and Pyu Saw Htee group came with four vehicles. As soon as they entered the village, they opened fire to frighten us, then they conducted searches in the village. Far as I know, they searched for PDF. They intimidated us with gunfire. After half an hour, sounds of gunfire stopped, and we found three houses were on fire. The house owner wasn’t at home. Later we found out that they were the houses of NLD members”, said a resident.
The torched houses belong to NLD members U Nyan Win, U Lwin, and U Win Maung, in Saw Phyar Village. No NLD members were staying at these houses.
