The regime forces, which invaded Kin Shae village in Thanintharyi Region’s Thayetchaung Township, threatened to destroy the village if the members of the People’s Defense Force were accepted, locals told Than Lwin Times.

A military column of 50 troops advanced towards Kin Shae village from Pauk Taing bridge around 2 p.m. on 28 November.

According to local residents, the junta soldiers ransacked nearly 20 homes in Kin Shae village and stole valuables, including children’s money boxes.

Before leaving the village, the regime troops scribbled on the wall, “If you accept the PDFs, we will destroy the village.”

When the military convoy entered Shin Mote Htee village and inspected the houses, 50-year-old Daw Myint was shot and killed while running away in fear.
