Pazigyi Village airstrike Attack - More than 300 refugees are in need of emergency aid
171 people were killed when the military council attacked Pazigyi village in the Malel District, Kanbalu Township, Sagaing Region, on the morning of April 11th.
In Pazigyi village, more than three hundred war-torn people are taking refuge in the jungles and need emergency aid, including medicine and clean water, according to those who are helping people fleeing the war.
"Those fleeing the war are gathering together. 50 people in some places. Some places have 100 people and in total there are about four places like that.” Even if helpers come, they are too scared. They are worried about what would happen.
Most of the refugees are children and women. The accommodation is not comfortable and the streets are no good for travel purposes. Locals say that it is very difficult to travel. There is no water in some places. Some places have water, and it is not clean. Among those who fled were stroke patients and chronic pain sufferers.
People ran away with nothing. There is also picking fruits from the forest. The demand for food and meals are also high as well.
As for our minister, U Yee Mon, I saw him talking about this office yesterday. I think NUG officials should encourage those who have fled the war. These people are now very affected mentally," said one of those helping on the ground.
