Myawaddy, August (27)
The regime forces have blocked Ukkayithta crossroad, and residents have been facing difficulties in travelling, the locals told Than Lwin Times.
A large number of junta forces have stationed at the Ukkayithta crossroads on the Myawaddy-Walley road, threatening locals with gunfire if they pass by.
As the junta blocked the crossroad, the commuters were having trouble obtaining goods from Walley and going to work.
“If the Ukkayithta intersection is closed, the Walley upper section of Kanele-Walley-Khee villages will not have much difficulty, but the people of Sukli-Tamohta-Kweta U villages will likely face difficulties for their livelihoods,” said a local.
In June, the KNLA joint forces attacked a junta camp near the Ukkarithta crossroad, and the military tension is intense there, and the residents of nearby villages have not yet returned to their homes due to the military situation.
There is military tension in Ukkarithta on the Myawaddy-Walley Road, and fierce fighting broke out between Cobra Column and junta armed forces. The military council is engaging in offensive operations to seize the territory.
The Karen National Union (KNU) has announced that there are more than 90,000 IDPs due to the military operations of the regime forces in the 6th Brigade of Dooplaya District held by KNU.
