“In line with our global policies, we’ve removed the Tatmadaw True News Information Team Page from Facebook for repeated violations of our Community Standards prohibiting incitement of violence and coordinating harm,” Facebook said on Sunday.

The social media giant has now deleted the main page of the Myanmar military.

The move comes after two protesters were killed on Saturday when police opened fire at a demonstration against the February 1 coup.

Two people were killed in Myanmar’s Mandalay on Saturday when police and soldiers fired at protesters demonstrating against Aung San Suu Kyi’s elected government’s overthrow, emergency workers said, the bloodiest day in more than two months of demonstrations.

The Myanmar military is known as the Tatmadaw, and its True News page was not available on Sunday.
