Brotherhood Alliance claims six killed by military in Lashio

The Brotherhood Alliance, which includes the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) and the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA), claimed that six Lashio residents, including one child, were killed and 10 were injured in artillery attacks carried out by the military on July 4.

The TNLA added that the six were killed in different wards of Lashio during fighting with the military. At least 12 have been reportedly killed since fighting began between the Brotherhood Alliance and the military on June 25. “I can hear non-stop gunfire. It is coming from the Burma Army side,” a Lashio resident told DVB. 

On Wednesday, a family of six, including one child, was killed in their home by artillery. Schools have been shut down and residents have fled Lashio. The TNLA accused the military of using poison gas bombs in Nawnghkio Township, which is located 201 kms southwest of Lashio.
