"From the Sagaing region and the Magwe region, the army is mainly involved in the revolution. Today, the human resource of the army has failed. The main thing that has been lost is the Sagaing and Magwe region. It has failed in other areas as well, but I see it being targeted more aggressively here. The next brutal actions are to instill fear in people. When this kind of fear comes in, it makes people not dare to rebel against their power."

RFA contacted Military Council Spokesperson General Zaw Min Tun and Sagaing Province Spokesperson Social Affairs Minister U Nyunt Win Aung regarding the arrest and killing of civilians by RFA, but there was no response.
