Another town falls to anti-regime forces in northern Sagaing

Maw Luu is the fourth town to be captured in Sagaing Region in little over a month

Resistance forces in northern Sagaing Region’s Indaw Township say they have taken control of Maw Luu, a town on the Mandalay-Myitkyina highway near the border with Kachin State.

The town was captured at around 6am on Wednesday, four hours after a coalition of anti-regime groups launched an assault on the local police station, sources from two of the groups involved told Myanmar Now.

Six junta soldiers and police were killed in the attack and another six were taken prisoner, according to an officer of the Indaw Township People’s Defence Force (PDF), which operates under the command of Myanmar’s civilian National Unity Government (NUG).

“We also seized a lot of weapons and ammunition. We’re still conducting area-clearing operations,” said the PDF officer, adding that there were around 30 junta personnel at the station when the attack began.
