SAGAING DIVISION – Bo. Kaut Yoe from Shwebo District Battalion 15, Eagle Guerrilla Force, revealed that the terrorist junta column from the Pyu Saw Htee bases in Pyinhtaung Village and Photekone Village, Khin U Township, was bombed with drones.
On Tuesday (January 16) at 10:24 p.m., 12 grenades were dropped into Pyinhtaung Village and the casualty of junta soldiers and Pyu Saw Htee militants is still under investigation. Then on January 17 at 10:19 a.m., a junta column made up of junta soldiers from Shwebo Recruit Training Regiment 8 and the Pyu Saw Htee militia from Photekone Village was attacked with four grenades and the junta and Pyu Saw Htee forces in Photekone Village reportedly fired back two rounds of Howitzer cannons.
“The Pyu Saw Htee base of Photekone Village has even been armed with Howitzer cannons. They (junta column) were heading towards Chaungsone Village. It is possible that many (junta forces) were hit. They have entered Chaungsone Village now, which is also a village in Khin U Township that is ruled by Pyu Saw Htee militia. Local defence forces blasted them with mines between Photekone and Chaungsone as well and we heard that the attack was effective. It is also said that there was another junta column with the Pyu Saw Htee militia from Madaunghla (Village) but we don’t know where they were headed,” said Bo. Kaut Yoe from Shwebo District Battalion 15, Eagle Guerrilla Force.
The attacks were carried out by Shwebo District Battalion 15 – Eagle Guerrilla Force, Bo. Kaut Yoe (grenade production), Kyaukse Nagar Ni District Battalion 1, Lighting Drone Force, Feature Hero, Khin U Township KSO and Khin U Prefecture 3 People’s Defence Team.
