12/11/2023 Myanmar (International Christian Concern) — Since February 2021, the Tatmadaw military attacked and destroyed 74 churches and arrested 42 Christians, according to the Burma Human Rights Network (BHRN). 

The BHRN continues to report increased violence, killings of civilians, and extra judicial killings.  

This latest report is written in light of the huge offensive by pro-democracy and indigenous ethnic forces (loosely called the Brotherhood Alliance) right across Myanmar against the Tatmadaw military dictatorship.  

The BHRN continues to report increased violence, killings of civilians, and extra judicial killings. The BHRN also notes several cases of specific Christian persecution in November 2023, including Tatmadaw targeting and bombing a Seventh Day Adventist church in Latpan Chaung village on 21 November, and the Tatmadaw taking over a church in Kayaah State capital Loikaw on 27 November (displacing over 50 civilians who were sheltering in the church).  

The BHRN comprises several human rights groups and provides monthly updates on human rights abuses in Myanmar.
