MON STATE – According to the leader of the Ye Belu Force and intelligence reports from watermelons (moles among the junta police force), five police guards at the Myawaddy Bank in the center of Ye Town were killed when Ye Belu group opened fire on them.
On September 26 at noon, Ye Belu Force opened fire on the army guarding the Myawaddy Bank at Yan Myo Aung Ward, around 100 meters from Shwesantaw Pagoda in Town Center. Ye Belu force launched a mission to shoot and confiscate guns from junta forces. They were able to shoot down five guard soldiers without harming the public. As the military council troops were returning continuous fire, they could not seize the guns but retreated.
“The mission plan was to seize the guns, ambushing the guard soldiers at the bank. Three soldiers were guarding at the outer trench and four to five soldiers on the top floor. We were able to shoot down the three in the lower trench and also two from the above guard post. But as the junta forces returned fire continuously, we could not get close to fetch the guns. We had done our best in this mission. There were no civilian casualties and only the junta troops were killed. We were able to fall back safely too,” stated the leader of Ye Belu Force.
According to the moles in the police force, a police sergeant and two militia members were killed in the shooting incident at the Myawadday Bank in Ye Township.
