On August 4th, at around 2 a.m., the bridge leading from Thit Phyu Seik village to Taw Kywe Inn was detonated.
“The bridge is always used by the junta army for supply purposes, and the terrorist army groups are attacking the KNLA near that bridge, so we know that the operation was carried out as a military target,” confirmed a local defense soldier.
