Dawei, December (13)
On December 11, the People’s Defense Force launched an attack on the military regime’s Phayarmae checkpoint near Maung Mae Shaung village of Dawei city gate, Tanintharyi Rgion.
The regime forces may have suffered casualties in the attack, and the details are being investigated, the PDF said.
After the attack, the junta army responded by firing with small and heavy weapons, but the resistance forces were able to retreat successfully, a PDF member said.
The regime troops have now tightened security at the Phayarmae checkpoint, blocking roads and checking passersby on December 12.
