Myanmar’s Forgotten War
THE BATTLE FOR CHINLAND
International and local human rights groups are accusing the Tatmadaw of perpetrating war crimes across the country.
“It’s deliberately targeted at the civilian population. It’s designed to destroy livelihoods and lives that support the resistance movement,” says Salai Za Uk Ling, of the Chin Human Rights Organisation.
“The methods that they use to instill fear in the population, be it the killing of a child, sexual violence against women, getting rid of bodies, burning, destroying evidence: They knowingly commit war crimes, and these are very well documented.”
