SAGAING DIVISION – It was reported that security measures were taken on the Kalaywa-Maharmyaing highway, as stated by Kalay District Battalion 9.
This section of the road is the main road that connects Sagaing, Shwebo, Ye U, Taze and Kalaywa and is the only road that can enter Kalay Town.
“We have cordoned off the Aungchanthar Station on the main road of our township (Kalaywa). This is done so that food and ammunition could not be transported to junta troops,” said an official from Battalion 9.
He also said that security checks are being conducted on the road section day after day as the military council troops are sending weapons and food in various ways. In addition, the junta army is also said to be conducting correspondence with each other using civilian cars.
Kalay District Battalion 9 is Kalaywa PDF. Currently, the military situation in the Kalaywa region is calm, and the comrades from the Kalaywa PDF are fighting in the battles in the bordering region.
In the upper part of the Sagaing Division, the military tension is reportedly high in Homalin, Shwepyiaye, and Tamu Townships.
