SAGAING DIVISION – The junta council faced casualties in the attack towards Nyaung Phyu Bin Police Station in Monywa Township by Local Defence Forces, the information officer of Monywa District People’s Defence Army (Chindwin Attack Force) said.
Local People’s Defence Forces launched an offensive attack towards Nyaung Pay Bin police station on November 24 at around 5:00 a.m.
The battle lasted for an hour and Defence Forces were able to reach about 25 meters away from the police station, but had to retreat without being able to seize it since there was insufficient weapons, ammunitions and having lack of heavy artillery, the official of Chindwin Attack Force mentioned.
In the battle, seven junta council soldiers were killed and a PDF was injured.
“We were able to get close to 25 meters to the police station. It was close enough to be able to talk to the people in the station. We witnessed that seven junta thugs were killed in the battle. The shooting started from their side. We shot at those outside the bunker,” said Chindwin Attack Force’s information officer.
