SAGAING DIVISION – It is said that a force of more than 40 people in the Pyu Saw Htee camp in the village of Ywatha, the western part of Shwebo Township, was attacked with long-range weapons, and seven members of the junta’s council were seriously injured.
A Shwebo Federal Army official said that the shooting started at around 1:30 in the afternoon on May 30, because the military council also returned fire, and the battle lasted for more than an hour.
It has been almost 2 years since the Junta’s Council and Pyu Saw Htee have been stationed in the village, and the soldiers in the camp dare to travel to the surrounding villages only when a large column arrives.
“The defense organizations are nearby the village, so they dare not go out from their place.” They (Pyu Saw Htee) are surrounded and controlled in a sense of internment. We can’t completely control it, but they can only make movements inside the village and nearby camps around the village. They can’t go out anywhere else,” he said.
The attack was carried out by alliance groups of military regions 5 and 2, including Captain Crocodile’s team, Shwebo Federal Army SBFA, Snake Eyes, Daung Man-LPDF, Daung Warriors LPDF, Mahura Shwebo-thar, Khut Daung (fighting peacock) Fighter-LPDF, Thaman Tiger-LPDF, Galongyi Public Defense-SBO, Shwebo District’s Battalion-4, Division-2 together.
