Paletwa Township in Chin State remains stable, yet the Military Council has imposed a two-year-long internet access blockade in the area. Despite the region’s stability, residents have reported a lack of internet access for over two years, which has disrupted communications and everyday life.

Starting from September 23, 2021, the Military Council began blocking internet access in several townships within Chin State, including Paletwa. The extended internet shutdown has been viewed as a tactic to conceal human rights violations by the Junta’s troops. Critics argue that the Military Council is employing the internet blackout as a weapon for these purposes.
