PDF Terrorists Shell Launglon Township, Killing Two People and Injuring Eight People including Four Children

On 21 December, PDF terrorists burnt down the office of the Veterans Association in Launglon township of Tanintharyi Region. Following their retreat from the scene, they fired improvised mortars at Launglon township, taking position at a distance of 1,100 meters to the southeast of Launglon township. The mortar shells exploded on the labor barracks of the construction near Ward (B) of Aung Chan Thar Pagoda. As a result of the explosion, one innocent man and another woman living in the labor barracks were killed and eight people, including four innocent children, were injured.

Taking up arms, PDF terrorists are not only blowing up State-owned and privately-owned buildings, non-military targets of public property but also intentionally committing acts of terrorism to make public frightened and to cause civilian causalities. Shelling villages and townships where innocent people live constitute the heinous act that mercilessly destroys lives and property of the people. Therefore, the entire population is disgusted at their acts of terrorism.

The victims were receiving medical treatment at Dawei General Hospital and security forces are taking necessary security measures to ensure peace as well as tranquility in the area, it is reported.
