Thayatchaung, December (18)
The junta troops struck the landmine when they came to remove the photo of junta leader Min Aung Hlaing used in demonstration by the protesters on Dawei-Myeik road between Thayat Hnakhwa and Thingyun villages in Tanintharyi Region’s Thayatchaung Township, the PDF members told Than Lwin Times.
Strike groups demonstrated on the Dawei-Myiek road, using a photo of military leader General Min Aung Hlaing with the words “Failed Army” written on it.
On the morning of December 17, the PDF Thayatchaung attacked a military convoy carrying about 10 soldiers who came to remove the photo and protest sign.
At least two junta soldiers might have been killed in the attack, and the details are under investigation, a PDF member said.
After the explosion, the regime forces indiscriminately opened fire at the neighborhood.
However, no PDF members were injured in the shooting of regime forces stationed at Thayat Hnakhwa Bridge.
On the evening of December 14, an infantry column of more than 100 troops was also mined near Weyit village in Thayatchaung Township.
