Ye, June (27)
The allied resistance forces said that they have taken control of No. 8 Pyidaungsu Road in Mon State to some extent.
Since June 18, the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) and revolutionary forces have started operations to control the area along Mawlamyine, Mudon, Thanbyuzayet, Ye, Dawei, Myein, and No.8 Pyidaunsu Road.
Since the regime troops are no longer active along No. 8 Pyidaungsu Road, it can be assumed that they have relinquished the area, said the spokesperson of allied forces.
However, on June 20, the mortar shell fired by the junta artillery exploded in the rubber farm of the local residents.
KNU Spokesperson, Padoh Saw Kalei Sae told Than Lwin Times, “The inspection of No. 8 Pyidaunsu Road by the allied resistance forces is the right thing to do, and we will use the necessary approaches to prevent the activities of the military council”.
The KNLA Battalion 27 and the allied PDF forces have been conducting inspections of the vehicle at three locations along No. 8 Pyidaunsu Road between Ye and Thanbyuzayet since June 18.
The revolutionary groups have detained four people related to the military council, and the investigation is ongoing and details will be released later, reported the office of the deputy regional commander of No. 3 Southern Military Region.
In addition, KNLA Battalion 27 and the PDF joint column aimed at controlling Mawlamyine, Ye and Thanbyuzayet areas are conducting daily military operations and inspections along the Mawlamyine-Ye-Dawei road, on the other hand, the allied forces raided the Hnit Karen police station near the coastal area of Ye Township on June 25.
Due to the retaliatory attack by the junta air force, civilians were killed or injured in Knit Karen village, said the locals.
