After the rebel attack, the dictatorship's forces were deployed in the areas surrounding the military bases to search for possible perpetrators. While interrogating residents, the military fired on two civilians, one of whom was seriously wounded.
The incident at the air force bases comes just days after the Burmese army bombed civilians in Kayin state. This State terrorist act has forced at least 6,000 people to head towards the Thai border in search of refuge.
Karen Women's Organization Director Naw K'Nyaw Paw explained that the Burmese air force is bombing jungle areas controlled by the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA), where thousands of civilians are hiding.
