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, sow discord between the Tatmadaw and the people, and using various ways to misunderstand the Tatmadaw in the international arena.  

  • “Khit Thit”, an unofficial media outlet, posted an allegation on social media platforms that five victims including children in Nammatu were injured due to the shell by the Tatmadaw. In reality, the said-shelling was conducted by TNLA terrorists, but the Tatmadaw personnel have never shelled public places of residence.
  • “Khit Thit”, an unofficial media outlet, posted the false information on social media platforms that 8 police members in the Kukke police station of Myingyan Township were killed due to a 40mm grenade-launcher attack. In reality, there was no explosion in the station and security officials from relevant areas are doing regular security duties there.

          Unofficial and subversive media are wilfully spreading such disinformation and fake news on social media platforms in order to give a misleading impression between the local people and the Tatmadaw, and create disruption to counter-terrorism operations being conducted by the Tatmadaw together with the people, and disturb the State’s peace and stability, it is reported.
