Myanmar Military Airstrike Kills Over 100 People in Pazigyi Village
In a shocking development, Myanmar’s military has launched an airstrike on a village called Pazigyi, killing over 100 people. The attack was confirmed by local sources and members of the shadow government. According to reports, the military allegedly targeted the village, claiming that it was harboring members of an ethnic armed group.
The attack took place on Saturday afternoon and lasted for several hours, causing widespread panic and destruction. The military used fighter jets and helicopter gunships to carry out the targeted strikes on several buildings in the village. Many of the victims are believed to be women and children. Dozens more were injured in the attack and have been transferred to nearby hospitals for medical treatment.
The international community has condemned the Myanmar military’s actions, with the United Nations Special Rapporteur calling the attack “absolutely horrific.” The UN has called for an immediate halt to the violence and has urged the military to respect human rights and the rule of law.
The military continues to deny any involvement in the attack, but videos and photos shared on social media appear to contradict their claims. The attack comes amid ongoing protests and widespread unrest in Myanmar following the military’s coup in February, which ousted the democratically elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi.
The situation in Myanmar remains volatile, with widespread protests and escalating violence. The international community has called for an end to the violence and for the military to return power to the democratically elected government.
