By Van Bawi Lian | Myanmar junta’s shelling on November 15 at around 10:30 pm in Chin State’s Hakha killed a 14-year-old boy, Shalom Van, and injured another two workers from Moe Hein Drinking Water Company.
Salom and the other two were taking night watch duty at the drinking water factory when the junta’s shell fell on their location.
“They were assigned to perform a night watch duty at the factory. The junta’s shell hit the house where they were in. Shalom died on the spot, and the two workers sustained injuries,” a source close to relatives told The Chin Journal.
This is the second incident of the Myanmar junta’s indiscriminate firing at residential areas in Hakha this month.
The first incident occurred on November 7 at around 8:30 pm in the Hakhathar ward when the junta soldiers at the Hakhathar check point released several rounds of gunfire, injuring a 60-year-old woman.
