“We are not sure who fired the heavy weaponry. There is no military post near to the village but we have seen troops [Tatmadaw] coming from the Ann Town side [East] and doing security patrols quite regularly. We have been hearing the sound of guns and fighting not far from the village but no fighting has happened inside our village,” said one local community member who spoke to CHRO.
