The screenshot validates the fake news about injured person attacked by Tatmadaw.

Malicious media outlets are spreading fake news on social media accusing the Tatmadaw of attacking villages which led to civilian injuries.
One report made unsubstantiated claims that the Tatmadaw launched a heavy weapon attack on Nyaungbin Village in Monywa Township, Sagaing Region, resulting in seven wounded and leaving two villagers in critical condition on 17 February.
An official of the security forces clarified that the Tatmadaw did not attack the village. Instead, he stated that terrorists were invading villages, and utilizing villagers as human shields, resulting in civilian casualties and injuries.
Likewise, another unfounded report alleged that a heavy weapon attack by the Tatmadaw caused two injuries and the destruction of over 10 houses in Yeaye Village, Hpa-an Township, Kayin State, on 15 February.
According to confirmed reports, it was the terrorists who recklessly attacked the security forces, resulting in heavy weapon falling on the villages and causing harm to the villagers.
