Nyaunlaybin, November 5

The number of displaced people has risen to over 700,000 as a result of human rights violations committed by the junta army in KNU-controlled areas since the coup, according to a report by KNU on 3 November.

More than 700,000 people have fled their homes and sought shelter in the Kawthoolei administrative area from February 2021, when the military took power, to September 30 this year, according to the statement.

More than 140 civilians were killed and more than 460 were injured due to the junta army’s airstrikes and artillery shelling in the nine months from January to September of this year.

In addition, the military regime has committed at least 1,847 human rights violations, and destroyed 1,584 homes, 85 public facilities, six clinics, 10 schools, and 32 religious buildings.

The military council has carried out at least 365 bombings and attacks targeting the public using fighter jets, helicopter gunships and drones, according to the KNU.

The military council army made 44 arbitrary arrests and killings, detaining at least 130 people from 43 villages, killing 30 people, and using three others as porters during this year.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) announced on October 12 that nearly 1.7 million people had fled their homes due to conflict and insecurity since the coup in Myanmar.
