On February 12 in the evening, Thuzar Htwe, a woman seven months pregnant living in Hlaing Wa Village, in Karen State’s Kawkareik Township, was arrested at her home by the Junta, under Section 52 of the Counter Terrorism Law, for allegedly supporting the People’s Defence Force (PDF). 

On February 22, the armed wing of the Junta fired artillery shells in Ngar Phar Village, in Sagaing Region’s Kale Township, during a military operation. Two local villagers, named Aung Tun and Than Hla, were arrested, tortured and killed. Than Hla suffered from muteness. Reportedly, the bodies presented gunshot wounds and other injuries.
