Ye, April (2)

 Two local residents were injured after bullets were fired at a family car travelling in their car on Ye-Mawlamyine highway between Bae Lamaing and Aye Gabar villagers in Mon State’s Ye Township, the locals told Than Lwin Times.

At around 6:30 a.m. yesterday, a family car that was heading to Mawlamyine from Lamaing was shot between Bae Lamaing and Aye Gabar villages.

U Maw Wa, 48, and his 45-year-old wife, Daw Kun Lahal, who were in the car, were shot and sustained bullet injuries.

It is reported that the couple were transported by social rescue teams from Lamai Hospital to Mawlami Public Hospital.

The villagers claim that the area where the incident occurred was where the junta troops were hidden, and that the couple may have been shot and injured as a result of an ambush attack.

On the evening of March 31, there was an exchange of fire between the junta army and the resistance forces on the Ye-Mawlamyine road, but no casualties have been reported.

After the declaration of martial law in Ye Township, the military council has tightened security and frequently opened fire on cars and motorcycles passing by during curfew hours, resulting in injuries or deaths.
