Two persons, including a soldier, were killed in the attack on the military-owned Myawaddy Bank in Yan Gyi Aung Ward in Mon State’s Ye Township, locals confirmed to Than Lwin Times.
On September 26, about 1:00 p.m., four unidentified gunmen arrived on two motorbikes and opened fire on the security troops at Myawaddy Bank.
A sergeant died on the spot in the attack, and an injured security guard, a former member of the militia group, died on the way to the hospital.
According to residents, following the attack, regime forces closed the route, searched the suspects, and arrested four locals from the surrounding area.
The Ye Balu group claimed around 5:30 p.m. on September 26 that they carried out attack on the security team of the Myawaddy Bank in the center of Ye Township.
They planned to enter the bank during that attack, but due to the security situation, they retreated safely, according to the head of the Ye Balu resistance group.
The military council’s battalions, camps, and departmental offices were frequently attacked in Ye Township, which had been declared martial law, amid tight security.
