TANINTHARYI DIVISION – According to local sources, junta troops entered Oktu village in Thayetchaung this morning, June 4th, with a significant number of forces and initiated a search operation.
At around 8 am, military council soldiers entered Oktu village from the Dawei side, utilizing approximately six vehicles, including three dump trucks.
“Separately, they are traversing the village streets. The heavy rainfall and concerns about the troops have led villagers to flee,” stated a local woman at 9:30 this morning.
The junta troops have previously entered Oktu village on several occasions, conducting searches and making arrests among the villagers. As a result, the current entry of junta troops has caused worry among the villagers, prompting them to flee to nearby areas.
It should be noted that on the 6th of last month, two houses were set on fire following the entry of military council troops into Oktu village.
In the second week of last month, the junta army entered Kanethiri village and neighboring villages along the road. Currently, the junta army remains stationed on the mountain in the village of Yange.
