The continuous firing of heavy weapons by the regime troops into Ah Lu Lay village in Mon State’s Belin Township has caused almost all the villagers to flee, and their homes have also been damaged, the locals told Than Lwin Times.

When there was any fighting, the junta troops that were stationed at Winypyan village in Belin fired at least 40 rounds of 60 mm, 80 mm, and 120 mm mortars into Ah Lu Lay village since 11 a.m. on April 19.

At least four houses were destroyed in the junta’s initial attack, although details of the incident are yet unknown.

The villagers, who had recently returned home, were now abandoning their homes a second time.
