On February 29, 2024, at around 8:10am, 12 civilians were killed and more than 80 were injured due to the terrorist Myanmar Military Council’s navy firing heavy weapons into the Korean Port market in Sittwe, Rakhine State.

On February 27, 2024, at 1:45 a.m., Min Bu Hospital in Min Pya Township, Rakhine State, was bombed by the terrorist Myanmar Military air force. The hospital was severely damaged and many defected Myanmar military soldiers, Civilians who were receiving treatment at the hospital and hospital staff were seriously injured.

In addition, it has been found that the terrorist Myanmar Military Council and its associates are intentionally spreading slanderous accusations that damage the dignity of the people of Rakhine and inciting ethnic hatred among the public.

The National Unity Government sends our deepest condolences to the people of Rakhine and their families, who have been killed and injured by the terrorist Myanmar Military Council. We are standing together with all the people of Rakhine who are enduring the oppression and the torture of the terrorist Myanmar Military Council.

The terrorist Myanmar Military Council’s attack on public places such as markets, hospitals, schools and shooting and killing civilians on a daily basis are crimes against humanity and they are committing war crimes. We will work together with the United League of Arakan and Arakan Army (AA) with our utmost endeavors to bring justice for those aforementioned crimes.
