According to data collected by AAPP, from February 2021 to November 6, 2023, (22) people in 2021, (207) people in 2022 and (248) people between January and November 6 in 2023; (477) people in total, have been killed by the junta’s artillery strikes across the country, with Sagaing Region recording the highest number of deaths with (145) people.

In addition to the above, in the morning of November 3, an artillery shell, fired by junta forces while a police guardpost in Min Village, Gangaw Township, Magway Region, was under attack, exploded in Min Village. As a result, two locals identified as Aung Hsann and Myo Lwin Oo, were killed from being struck by artillery shrapnel.
