Myanmar air strikes: How an NGO’s report poked holes in junta’s narrative

Issued on:

This Thursday marks three years since Myanmar’s military seized power in a coup, and the country is still beset by a civil war between the ruling junta and armed ethnic groups. On January 7, residents and officials of a small village in western Myanmar said the air force had conducted air strikes killing 17 civilians, but the official state media called the claim “fake news.” In this edition of Truth or Fake, Vedika Bahl shows how a probe by the NGO Myanmar Witness contradicts this denial.
