There has been widespread condemnation internationally for these killings and several diplomatic missions in Myanmar have issued statements that mention the killing of civilians, including children, on Saturday.

The US embassy says the security forces are “killing unarmed civilians”. Meanwhile, Dr. Sasa, spokesperson of the anti-military regime group (CRPH), said, “Today is a shame for the security forces.”
The EU delegation to Myanmar said on Twitter, “The 76th Myanmar Armed Forces Day will be remembered as a day of terror and disrespect. The killing of unarmed civilians, including children, is an act that has no defense. “
