Missiles were fired at two air bases in Myanmar, and the military forces are searching for those involved

 In Myanmar, the army announced that missiles had fallen on the government air bases, "Magway" and "Meiktila", in central Myanmar, causing minor losses, and no casualties were reported.

The American ABC News reported today, Thursday, that the missile attack is the latest in light of the army's attempts to control the large demonstrations that took place in a number of cities in Myanmar, as it denounced the military coup that had seized power since early February.

During a press conference held in the capital, Nay Pyi Dow, Capt. I Thazin Mint, the army spokeswoman, said that four 107 mm rockets were fired at the "Magawai" base in the early hours of this morning, but one missile fell inside the base. Resulting in damage to one building.

She added that five other rockets were fired towards an air base in the city of Meiktila, and gunfire was heard from neighboring villages.

No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but the government has announced that it is still searching for those involved.

It is noteworthy that the military ousted and arrested Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi and arrested other prominent political officials, after allegations of rigging the parliamentary elections that took place last November.
