On the morning of February 25, the armed wing of the terrorist Junta raided and set fire to the Hna Ma Sar Yit village, in Sagaing Region’s Shwebo Township. Khin Than, aged 77 years old, died from the fire, while she was hiding in the bathroom, as she was not able to run away. In addition, Yin San Aye and Thein, aged 33 and 55 years old respectively, were shot dead while running away with other locals.

On February 24 at 9:30 pm, 19-year-old Saw Khu Nay Lar, a local living in Ka Pi Khee Village, in Kayin State’s Hpapun Township, died after being shot in the back. Four other villagers were injured, and five houses destroyed after Border Guard Force (BGF) Battalion #1013 fired three artillery shells in that village.
