Yesagyo, 1 March
Five members of military-backed militias were killed during a raid on their camp by a local defense force in Yesagyo Township, Magway region on 27 February.
Captain Meik Khae, the leader of Myingyan Black Tiger, said to Than Lwin Times that these militia members, known as Pyusawhtees, were the key persons to set up a military camp in Gootgyi village.
“All the villages in this area support the military. No one should play with fire. They requested letters to the junta regime to set up a military camp in their village. They are preparing to operate a camp by mid- March. So, we attacked them in advance,” said Captain Maik Khe.
The local resistance force confiscated their patrol schedules, name list of Pyusawhtees and their seizure of public land in the raid.
