Killing

This category includes civilian deaths resulting from summary execution, sometimes following arbitrary arrest, detention and torture; or resulting from attacks that fail to distinguish civilians and combatants. Civilian deaths have also resulted from employment of “shoot-on-sight” practices by government forces in areas in which movement restrictions are being enforced, or where civilians have previously been forcibly relocated, and/or in areas where the control by Tatmadaw forces is weak. Villagers have responded to this use of military force against civilians by using advanced warning systems and fleeing from their villages prior to conflict, or travelling with ‘Home Guard’ (gher der) groups in areas threatened by armed operations that target civilians.
