AA insurgents have attacked civilian targets, harassing and injuring unarmed civilians, as a vessel carrying steel frames for the Paletwa Bridge project was set on fire by AA insurgent yesterday morning.
MV-Yadana Win 7, carrying 300 steel frames weighing 286.23 tons for the Paletwa Bridge project, left Yangon on 10 March and sailed to Paletwa via Sittway and Kyauktaw. The vessel was near Namada Village, Paletwa Township, Chin State when AA insurgents directed small-arms fire at the vessel and forced it to dock by the river bank. They then abducted the ship’s crew and set the vessel on fire.
The vessel was carrying steel frames, paint, high tension bolts and other bridge construction materials, valued at more than Ks 1.072 billion.
The abducted crew from the vessel were later released and returned to the Special Bridge Group 1 project site, according to the Myanmar Police Force. — MNA (Translated by Zaw Min)
