Thaton, 30 August

A junta camp stationed in Painne Taw village in Mon State’s Thaton Township was attacked twice by drones, reportedly killing or injuring junta soldiers, according to the allied resistance forces.

The combined force of the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) and People Defense Forces (PDFs) dropped nine bombs using drones on 28 August morning.

Some buildings were damaged as the bombs landed on the central guard, officers’ housing, and dormitories in Painne Taw camp.

Around five regime troops were injured or killed, but the details of the situation on the ground are still being investigated, Ko Aye Min Tun, the spokesperson of  PDF-Thaton District, told the Than Lwin Times.

After being attacked by a drone, the junta troops fired back with heavy weapons and small arms, but the joint forces were able to withdraw without being harmed, he added.

The combined force of the KNLA attacked the Painne Taw military base, which frequently fired heavy weapons into villages, at least eight times.

According to the residents, the junta troops from Painne Taw camp threatened the administrators early last year that they would burn down the village if the KNLA joint forces attacked their camp.
