Anti-coup armed group clashes with army in Chin state, Myanmar: 8 dead

The number of deaths increased to 805 as a result of the military intervention in Myanmar.

In the daily report published by the Political Prisoners Aid Organization (AAPP), it was reported that 3 more people died in the country in the last 24 hours.

In the report, the total loss of life was updated as 805, while 4,146 people were detained.

It was stated that there was a custody warrant for 1722 people.


On the other hand, the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), one of the anti-coup ethnic armed groups in the province of Shan, which borders Myanmar to China, stopped the tankers supplying oil to the Myanmar army and set it on fire.

Speaking to The Irrawaddy newspaper, KIA information officer Naw Bu stated that the tankers in question were planning the attack after receiving the information that they were going to an army base in the state.

Noting that they burned a total of 5 oil tankers, Bu emphasized that civilian drivers were not harmed.


The Myanmar army seized the administration on February 1, after the allegations of fraud in the November 8, 2020 elections and the rise of political tension in the country.

The army detained many officials and ruling party leaders, including the country’s de facto leader and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Çii, and declared a state of emergency for a year.

While large-scale demonstrations continue in the country, high-ranking government officials in custody continue to be tried in a military court.
