Nine civilians killed in junta airstrikes in Waibula, Chin State


At least nine civilians were killed and several others injured when the Myanmar military regime’s air force launched airstrikes on Waibula town in Falam Township, Chin State, around 11 am on 10 April.

The airstrike came after the junta’s camp in Vaar village near Falam was raided and captured by the Chin National Defence Force (CNDF) on the morning that day, according to local sources.

According to reports, the junta aircraft dropped two bombs near the school and football field in Waibula, killing at least nine people and injuring several others.

“We have heard that nine people were killed and many injured. One injured woman died while being treated. It is a bit difficult to give the exact number of those killed because of poor communications in Waibula,” said a resident of Falam.

Five houses in downtown Waibula were also burned in the military council airstrikes.

Waibula is located about 15 miles from Vaar village on the Kale-Natchuang-Falam Road.

The junta’s air force reportedly flew at least six airstrikes on Vaar and Kyaunghe villages in Falam Township on 10 April.
