Myanmar’s military regime executed airstrikes on Tuesday across four regions, which killed seven, injured nine, and caused significant destruction to residences and vehicles, The Irrawaddy reported, citing locals.

The junta’s warplanes and artillery intensified indiscriminate assaults on civilian targets, coinciding with the progression of the resistance’s Operation 1027 offensive nationwide.

In Sagaing Region’s Pale Township, a regime fighter jet bombed a judicial office run by the civilian National Unity Government in Min Taing Pin village, resulting in the death of five individuals, including an infant. 

The attack, which occurred on Tuesday afternoon, left five others injured. Notably, the area had not experienced recent clashes, and the judicial office was not hosting any ceremony, making the assault seemingly unprovoked.

Locals are urged to remain vigilant, as the Pale Township People’s Administration issued a warning, emphasizing the junta’s widespread commission of war crimes.

In Kyun Hla Township, Sagaing Region, three fighter jets and a Mi-35 helicopter launched an attack on villages in the Thaphanseik Dam area. 

Six bombs were dropped, injuring two civilians from Aye Chan Thar village and causing damage to vehicles. There was no ongoing fighting in Kyun Hla Township, highlighting the seemingly arbitrary nature of the attacks.

In Bago Region, a 64-year-old woman lost her life, and a one-year-old child sustained injuries when a regime fighter jet bombed Kine Tae Su village in Mone Township, according to the Karen National Union (KNU).

Northern Shan State witnessed continued bombardment of Namkham and Nansang towns, with one civilian reported dead in the attacks on Nansang. 

Meanwhile, a bomb dropped on Lwal Lwan village in Namkham Township resulted in an injury, according to the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA). 

The TNLA highlighted the Myanmar military’s persistent assaults on civilian targets in northern Shan State since October.

In Rakhine State, three warplanes targeted Pan Myaung village in Minbya Township, as reported by the Arakan Army (AA). 

Additional artillery attacks were reported in Buthidaung, Rathedaung, Minbya, Ponnagyun, Mrauk-U, Ann, and Myebon townships, causing injuries to three individuals, according to the AA.

Meanwhile, despite participating in peace talks in China, the Brotherhood Alliance, comprising the Arakan Army, Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), and Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army, declared their commitment to continue fighting against Myanmar’s regime. 

The alliance affirmed its dedication to the people’s aspirations for a federal democratic union and vowed to persist in its operations.
