The Myanmar military cut off its domestic Internet service on Monday (February 15) and deployed troops in many parts of the country.
According to AFP, after pictures of military vehicles and soldiers stationed in parts of Myanmar appeared on social media platforms, the United Nations asked the Myanmar military to allow United Nations observers to enter Myanmar on the 14th, and the Myanmar military immediately shut down Internet services.
According to Reuters, the U.S. Embassy in Myanmar issued a “shelter-in-place” warning to its citizens on Sunday (14th) on the grounds that armored vehicles appeared on the streets of Yangon for the first time since the regime change occurred on February 1.
The U.S. Embassy in Myanmar said that “communication services may be interrupted between 1:00 and 9:00 a.m.”
On February 1, after the Burmese military took control of the regime, large-scale anti-military demonstrations have broken out in the area for many consecutive days.
Local media reported that trains in parts of the country stopped running because some staff refused to go to work.
The military also tried to deploy soldiers to the power plant, but they were also protested by crowds there.
