SAGAING DIVISION – Three local People’s Defence Forces jointly attacked the junta soldiers on guard duty at Government Technological College (GTC) at Myoe Thit Ward in Monywa, Sagaing Division, and three were killed, as informed by Datta Monywa PDF.
Bo. Datta from Datta Monywa PDF said that they attacked the five junta soldiers in the bunker at GTC on Monday (May 15) morning at 9:00 a.m.
“It took three days for us to carry out the mission at GTC. We had no chance to launch an attack on the first day nor the second day. But on day three, our comrades were able to attack. Two comrades entered and opened fire. The dogs (junta soldiers) were shot when they were entering the bunker,” said Bo. Datta.
Ten members from three local PDF took part in the mission, but only two comrades attacked the junta soldiers entering the bunker from a close range. Witnesses reported that three junta soldiers were killed.
“The witnesses mentioned that those dead bodies were dragged within the GTC,” said Bo. Datta.
Although it is known three were killed according to the witnesses and accounts from the comrades who carried out the mission, the detailed investigation is ongoing.
This mission was operated by the coalition of Datta Monywa PDF, Monywa Fighter Group and Bo Thathaung People’s Defence Force (BTT PDF).
