"The junta forces conducted airstrikes using a jet fighter. As the town was already peaceful, we didn't expect such airstrikes. People were going with normal activities, when the bombs struck, resulting in casualties among teenagers and elderly people," explained the resident.


A residential house and a shop in Tarunaing village were also destroyed by a bomb explosion. The victims sustained serious injuries. Some of them faced exceptional bleeding.
