“This is one too many killings, and we are not going to let it go unchecked; everyone who was involved, directly or indirectly, in the assassination of those family breadwinners must pay a heavy price.”

Their duty is to conduct further investigations and provide the OYC with information on the event, including the number of lives lost, the destruction and looting of property, as well as the involvement of military officials.
“We will take this issue to the greatest level possible, even if it means bringing it beyond the country,” the group said.
