Myanmar Regime Airstrikes Break International Law: NUG
Myanmar’s military regime is being accused of breaching the Geneva Convention and International Humanitarian Law by repeatedly using its air force to attack civilian targets across the country.
By Dec. 22, the junta used its air force, including helicopters and fighter jets, to indiscriminately attack civilians, People’s Defense Forces (PDFs) and ethnic armed groups in almost 20 townships in Sagaing, Magwe and Tanintharyi regions and Kachin, Chin, Shan and Kayah states, according to U Aung Myo Min, the human rights minister in the shadow National Unity Government and other sources.
During the junta airstrikes, civilians and resistance fighters were killed and several thousand civilians fled homes. Thousands of civilian homes have been burned down in regime raids.
