It is reported that the SAC military column looting the things in Madaya township, Mandalay Region, that are patrolling by impersonation as PDF was attacked by the local defense forces twice.
The Demon (underground revolutionary force) announced that “at around 8:00 p.m. of May 25, around 70 strengths of the military column looting the properties of the villagers of Yonepin village in Madaya township, were attacked by landmines near Myaung Thit village, and in addition, this column was fired by heavy weapon-40(Ma-Ma) near Sedaw village. Moreover, the column stationed in Shan village that came to provide reinforcements had also been mined for the third time.
“They came with 4 carts on which the goods were looting from Yonepin village. After the carts, they came on foot. I don’t know for sure that their column was included the Pyusawhti (militias). They were not with their uniform. They are coming in plainclothes disguised as PDFs. We firstly mined the column who came out of Yonepin village, but this column didn’t turn back and continued to patrolled, so we fired again with 40 mm. There were many casualties of the soldiers. Because it was night, I can’t say for sure. When the reinforcements arrived next, we attacked by another mine to the column on the way,” said Captain Net Soe, the person in charge of the Demon (Underground Revolutionary Forces).
The attack was carried out jointly by the Demon (Underground Revolutionary Forces) of Company-1 of the Pyin Oo Lwin District Battalion (No.1)- (Company-1), Daung People’s Defense Force, Allied Revolutionary Force-MRF, Ti Thean (Underground Revolutionary Force), Zamani People’s Defense Force, Amara Soldier (Mandalay) and Thunder Guerrilla Force, and the PDF comrades retreated without any injuries.
