In another similar incident, artillery shells struck Taungbwe Village of Kyauktaw Township at around 4 a.m. on Monday, killing a 15-year-old boy and wounding two teenagers, according Irrawaddy.

Those who are injured are hospitalized in Buthidaung and Sittwe General Hospitals respectively.

Recently tens of villages in Buthidaung and Rathedaung witnessed the fierce fighting between the colonial army and decolonizing fighters with many of them being wholly destroyed or displaced where the two sister communities, Muslim and Buddhist, equally are affected.

Unfortunately, the Muslims (Rohingya) are totally helpless – they neither get any support or protection from the government nor the civil societies.
