Military sends relief aid for IDPs, locals in Paletwa


Blockade of transportation routes by AA terrorist group in Paletwa area, Chin State, has halted commodity flows, causing the hike of commodity prices and shortage of foodstuffs for the civilians, civil service employees and internally displaced persons .
Security forces could send essential food items donated by Chin State government, Tatmadaw families and INGOs to Paletwa Township from 19 to 24 April despite attacks of the AA terrorist group.
On 26 April, some 40 military trucks were used to convey rice, cooking and beans from Sami Town to Paletwa. These food items will be distributed to the IDPs and local people in residential areas of Paletwa.
Some military vehicles have left Matupi Township for Paletwa on 25 April, carrying food and commodities donated by the World Food Programme, but are stranded at Sami due to bad weather conditions, road damages and AA attacks.
These essential food items will be conveyed to Paletwa under the favourable weather conditions.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
