Statement regarding terrorist military junta’s attacks targeted the civilians on Mung Lai Hkyet IDP Camp near Laiza Township in Kachin State

10 October 2023

1.  The Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) is deeply saddened to learn that terrorist military junta carried out targeted attacks against civilians who are at Mung Lai Hkyet IDP Camp in Laiza Township of Kachin State around 11:30 PM on 9 October 2023, killing at least 30 displaced persons including 13 children and injuring over 50 people.

2.  We condemn in the strongest possible terms such inhumane violence continuously carried out by the terrorist military junta. Since the unlawful military coup on 1 February 2021, the brutal military junta has carried out indiscriminate attacks through airstrikes, bombings on civilian places, schools, religious buildings, villages and IDP camps as well.

3.  More than 2 million have been displaced due to terrorist military junta’s day-by-day increasing terrorism and violence acts across the country. To date, over 25,000 people have been arrested, over 4,000 civilians have been killed while around 80,000 civilians’ houses have been destroyed by arson attacks. The terrorist military junta led by Min Aung Hlaing has continuously carried out violence against civilians due to impunity for many years.

4.  The Committee Representing Pyiduangsu Hluttaw will keep sustain our efforts as an essential work to achieve the implement of justice for the people, and the terrorist military junta must be held accountable for their crimes committed. We firmly believe that the international community will understand that the only effective measures against the terrorist coup military would be able to cease their inhumane acts of violence.

5.  We strongly urge again the international community including the United Nations Security Council to cooperate effectively to block the export and sale of arms as soon as possible and to increase stronger pressure and sanctions to military junta and, to work together with the democratic forces by providing practical assistance in order to implement justice for the people of Myanmar.
