Terrorism: the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion

Rape, torture, indiscriminate air attacks, extrajudicial attacks. As a minimum, terrorism involves the intimidation or coercion of populations or governments through the threat or perpetration of violence, causing death, serious injury or the taking of hostages, as defined by OHCHR.

Sadly, these acts of terror currently occur on a weekly, if not daily basis, perpetrated by the very people who are theoretically supposed to be protecting the civilian population, in this case, Myanmar.
