The “anti-military coup forces” in Myanmar announced that they “killed dozens of members of the army, including a senior military commander, in a fight that took place between the two sides.”
“At least 30 government soldiers were killed, including a tactical military commander, on Monday morning, after a military convoy detonated landmines outside Balis town,” the newspaper “Asian News International” quoted a People’s Defense Forces official as saying.
A spokesman for the “anti-establishment forces” in Myanmar stated that “the People’s Defense Forces have been waiting for a military convoy since the end of last week, after they learned that a senior army commander would accompany the unit.”
The spokesman accused “the army forces of targeting civilians and looting property in several areas, including Bali, Yinmapen, Monywa, Minjin, Hetigying and Chong O.”
