SAGAING DIVISION – A responsible person of Black Leopard Army said that the People’s Defence Forces (PDF) has launched the battle to capture Palae Town in Sagaing Division on November 15 morning.
At about 10 a.m. on November 15, PDF launched attacks on the police stations and the general administration offices in Palae Township where the junta troops were stationed.
Mr. Okka, the responsible person for Black Leopard Army said that they were trying to capture the town but have to do it in moderation due to incoming junta reinforcement.
Mr. Zaw Htet of Palae Township People’s Administration Body also said that Darmasine Army (Battalion 28 of Yinmabin District), Leopard Army and Northern W Yamar Bo Mya Team came into the town by cars and launched the attack.
It has been reported that there were changes of fire but the details of casualties on both sides are not yet clear. Junta forces are reportedly hiding and attacking back from the trenches at the police stations and general administration offices while the revolutionary forces are trying to capture the town.
Mr. Okka said, “We arrived in front of the police station. We tried but couldn’t seize the weapons. There should be many casualties from the junta side.”
It has been reported that the military situation has become more intensified in Sagaing Division and Magway Division after the launch of Operation 1027 in Northern Shan State by the Brotherhood Alliance and People’s Defence Forces had already captured junta camps and police stations and also seized control of Kawlin and Pinlaebuu Towns.
