Woman injured in landmine explosion in Belin


Belin, 24 August

A woman was seriously injured in a landmine blast in Mayangon village in Belin Township, Mon State, on 13 August morning, locals confirmed to Than Lwin Times.

Daw War War Nu, 50, from Mayangone village, was walking to her farm near the village at about 8:00 a.m. on 22 August when she was injured by a landmine.

After stepping on a land mine, Daw War War Nu suffered a ruptured left ear and wounded at her arm, hip, and thigh from landmines.

Daw War War Nu was taken to the public hospital in Thaton District by the social rescue team via Belin Hospital.

The incident happened in the area affected by conflicts between regime troops and the combined force of the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA).

When the junta column invaded Mayangone village in the final week of July, a clash broke out with the KNLA joint forces.

Landmine explosions have occurred again in Mon State following the military coup, killing at least 20 civilians.
