The photo depicts the Kyoneik Bridge, which is connecting between Yangon and Mawlamyine in Thaton Township, Mon State, was exploded by KNLA insurgents and PDF terrorist groups on 11 May 2024.

Terrorists detonate roads and bridges used by the public with the aim of disrupting the country’s stability and the rule of law, thereby suspending the flow of goods in the region and hindering the development of socio-economic life. Additionally, they set fire to office buildings, schools, and public houses and carry out acts of sabotage by entering villages in various ways.
On the morning of 11 May, security forces conducting operations near Kyoneik Bridge on the Yangon-Mawlamyine section of Pyidaungsu Road in Mon State were attacked by KNLA insurgents, allied with PDF terrorist groups, from approximately 300 metres north of the bridge with dropped bombs.
As a result, clashes occurred between the security forces and the terrorist groups, leading to the terrorists fleeing to the northeast of the bridge and detonating it. Consequently, the northern embankment of the bridge was completely destroyed due to the detonation of the mine by the terrorists.
On 29 June 2023, the bridge was detonated with mines by terrorists, causing difficulties for public transportation and disrupting the flow of commodities. Consequently, the government repaired the bridge as quickly as possible to facilitate transportation and the movement of goods for local people, only for it to be detonated and destroyed by terrorists a second time.
Terrorists have committed war crimes by blowing up roads and bridges used by the public, which are not related to the military. They aim to disrupt public transportation, induce panic and fear, damage the flow of commodities, and undermine stability.
Due to the mining attacks, there are currently difficulties for both the public and vehicles of all sizes to pass through. Therefore, employees and officials of the relevant Highways/Bridges Department are continuing the process of repairing the damage as soon as possible while security forces continue to carry out the necessary counter-terrorism operations. — MNA/TKO
