Saturday was the deadliest day in Myanmar since the military coup on February 1, with a site now called Myanmar killing 114 people across the country on Saturday. According to an observer from the United Nations
What the Myanmar army is doing is a mass killing. Fighting has continued between demonstrators against the seizure of power in Myanmar’s main cities and the armed forces since the coup. In those clashes that took place on Saturday in the capital Yangon, 27 people were killed in Mandalay, the second largest city in the country, 40 of whom were a 13-year-old girl.
Fighting continues in the countryside, where the Sagaing region in the center of the country has also been the victim of the clashes, aged 13 years. Near the Thai border, the army is fighting members of a local ethnic minority called the Karen, who had previously occupied a military base, killing 10 soldiers. In response, the army bombed villages in Karen on Saturday.
All of this happened on the Day of the Armed Forces of Myanmar, which was celebrated by a parade by the reigning army. To celebrate resistance to the Japanese occupation in 1945, eight countries – Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand – sent representatives, with Russia directly represented at the ministerial level. Russian and Chinese support is especially important for the junta because, as permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, they can block any more serious move.
Meanwhile, military leaders from 12 countries jointly condemned the army’s massacres. “As Chiefs of Staff, we condemn the Myanmar army’s use of lethal weapons and support for security forces against defenseless people. Soldiers in a professional army must respect international standards and take responsibility towards the people they serve,” as stated in Australia, Denmark and the South. Korea, USA, UK, Greece, Netherlands, Japan, Canada, Germany, Italy and New Zealand.
The Myanmar military took power from the democratically elected leadership on February 1, saying that Aung San Suu Kyi and the National League for Democracy (NLD) she led fooled the November 8 elections. This is also strange because Myanmar was until now just a partial democracy dominated by the military that has ruled the country for decades now. Aung San Suu Kyi is still detained since then.
