Yebyu, 27 September
Local military regime blocked access to the Kan Pauk area in Tanintharyi Region’s Yebyu Township on 26 September morning.
A military checkpoint in Kan Pauk village tract, home to a population of over ten thousand according to the 2014 census, was attacked on the night of September 25, and the army blocked access to the area.
Since 26 September morning, regime forces have not only blocked the entrance to the Kan Pauk area, but also have not allowed people to go to other areas.
As a result, vendors who want to go to other areas, including Yebyu, and those who want to see the doctors for medical issues are in trouble, according to local residents.
Residents fear that if the entrance road to Kan Pauk is closed for a long time, it could have an impact on the family’s way of life.
Following the checkpoint attack, the junta army was strengthened with nearly 30 additional troops, and security has been tightened.
After the military coup, there was widespread nonviolent peaceful protest in the Kan Pauk area, and hundreds of villagers were detained, said locals.
