Three civilians from Mindat Township in Chin State were killed by Myanmar junta artillery on Thursday.

A man in his 70s, a woman in her 60s and a woman in her 30s from Moei Twei village were farming near the village when the Mindat-based Light Infantry Battalion 274 fired shells.

A CDF spokesman said: “This is deliberate shooting at innocent civilians. We will respond strongly.”

An 11-year-old lost a leg and a women was injured by artillery in the township last month.
