The KhitThit media outlet has recently reported false information regarding an incident in KanHtoo Ma Village, Taze Township, Sagaing Region.

Contrary to their claims, on February 23rd, there was no deliberate setting of fire by security forces. The actual event occurred on February 21st, when the PDF terrorists attacked the local Police Station, resulting in casualties during an armed exchange with security forces.

The security forces effectively countered the attack, causing the terrorists to retreat. Subsequently, security measures have been implemented in the village and surrounding areas to ensure public safety. It is evident that illegal subversive media outlets are spreading misinformation to discredit the security forces and sow confusion among the public. For accurate information on such incidents, the state-owned media and newspapers provide timely updates.
