Narinjara, a local news service, reported that two Rohingya women, 18 and 28, were killed and eight villagers injured when the shells landed in Kin Taung village in Buthidaung Township on early Friday.
Aung Thaung Shwe, a lower house lawmaker from Buthidaung Township, confirmed the incident.
“The incident happened on Friday at around 2.00 a.m. (730GMT). Two houses were directly hit by the shells,”
“As a result, two women were killed and eight wounded villagers were taken to hospital in Buthidaung town,” he said.
“Whenever there is an incident in Muslim villages, we found it is due to the military,” said the official on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue.
“This is the clear message from military that they are not accepting the ICJ ruling,” the official told on Friday.
