On 9 May, PDF terrorists launched reckless attack on the militia units’ outpost Hsonywa village, located in the east of Sameikkhon village in Myingyan Township of Mandalay Region. Militiamen exchanged fire with the terrorists who then set fire to nearby houses in the village on their way to retreat.

During the incident, the terrorists’ heavy weapon shells landed in the village, killing 32 peaceable locals: 17 men and 15 women and injuring 14 civilians: five men and nine women. Around 50 houses in the village were destroyed by fire during the terrorists’ strike.

With an intention to endanger innocent peaceable people, terrorists holding a negative attitude are committing various acts of terrorism. Various associations have issued statements to express condemnation and protest against terrorists’ attacks which claimed the lives of local people.  The entire population does not tolerate terrorists’ strikes and feel rather disgusted with the terrorists.  

Security forces are pursuing the terrorists who retreated from the scene and taking necessary security measures, it is reported.
