False information that two monks and two civilians were injured at Anphalay village in Kayin State’s Kawkareik township due to Tatmadaw artillery fire has been spread on social media pages, according to a statement issued by the State Administration Council on 30 November.
A malicious media posted on social media that four artillery shells exploded inside a monastery located at Anphalay village at around 5:30 pm on 27 November, destroying a monastery building and a water tank tower and injuring two monks, the statement said.
The statement described that, according to military sources, Tatmadaw did not use heavy weapons around the village, but terrorists have made planned attacks on non-military targets – towns, villages, schools and religious buildings. Besides, news that Tatmadaw had twice bombed a school and hospital located at Ywashayma village in Taze township of Sagaing Region is also false, said the statement. But PDF terrorists attacked Taze in YeU district on 28-29 November, and combined security forces launched a brave and effective counterattack, causing heavy casualties on terrorists, who retreated in array. There was no fighting in Taze’s villages on 30 November, which is false information, according to the statement quoting a security official serving in Taze.
Malicious media that intend to disturb the country have spread such false information intending to conceal PDFs’ terror acts and misleading cooperation between Tatmadaw and residents, said the statement. It added that residents have also requested security forces to eradicate PDF terrorists. — Thit Taw/ZS
