SHAN STATE – Firing of heavy and small arms have been continuously heard on June 2, at Mobye Town in Southern Shan State, said a local resident.
He said that it is not unusual to see a battle in Mobye Town, but there is a fear that heavy artillery shells will fall and explode in residential areas.
“We have been hearing the sounds of heavy and small arms in the Town since morning. It seems that there are more fightings going on. The battle is not unusual, but we are worried that the junta council is also targeting residential areas that are not part of the battlefield,” said the resident.
Most of the people from Mobye Town have been fleeing to other areas for safety but there are some local people still living in Mobye town.
The current situation of battles in Mobye is still under investigation.
The Mobye People’s Defence Force – MBPDF has issued a statement and alerted the people to live with care because of the military tension in the town.
