Unofficial and Subversive Media Outlets Spreading Rumours and Fabrication on Social Media Platforms

Unofficial and subversive media outlets have been creating and spreading rumours and fabricated news all round to create instability and unrest across the country; sowing discord between the Tatmadaw and the people, and using various ways to create a misleading impression of the Tatmadaw in the international arena.  

  • “Khit Thit”, an unofficial media outlet, posted false information on social media platforms that the Tatmadaw carried out bombardment on Seinnan village in Taze Township, resulting in civilian casualties. It is just a vague rumour. In reality, local innocent civilians were killed and injured by drone attacks of PDF terrorists.
  • “Ayeyawady Times”, an unofficial media outlet, alleged that the Tatmadaw conducted air strikes on villages near Maha Muni Buddha Image in Kyauktaw Township, leading to the destruction of villages. It is just misinformation. In reality, AA insurgents shelled and launched electric-detonated rocket attack on villages near Maha Muni Pagoda, burning some houses to the ground.
  • “Ayeyawady Times”, an unofficial media outlet, posted rumours on social media platforms that Tatmadaw personnel torched at least twenty houses in Paungde Township. It is false news. In reality, there were no active security forces present near the town but PDF terrorists were responsible for burning the houses and subsequently fleeing.
  • “Khit Thit”, an unofficial media outlet, spread false information that the Tatmadaw shelled Yayphyukan village, Nyaunglebin Township that killed some local people and injured some others. It is just a fabrication. In reality, armed insurgents and PDF terrorists launched a drone attack on the village that killed some local people and injured some others.

PDF terrorists taking position in houses snipe at security personnel; launch bomb attack on the latter; use locals as human shield; and make arson attacks on residential houses on their way of retreat. Unofficial and subversive media outlets are wilfully spreading such disinformation and fake news on social media platforms in order to cover up terrorists’ acts and create a misleading impression among local people and security personnel, it is reported.
