Anti-junta forces overrun, torch police station in Bago Region

Members of the PDF, KNLA, and BPLA took part in the attack, capturing a large cache of junta weapons, ammunition, and equipment

Resistance and Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) fighters seized and set fire to a police station in Bago Region’s Phyu Township early Wednesday morning, a resistance spokesperson said. 

The allied forces’ attack on the station began at 4am in the village of Nyaung Pin Thar, five miles south of Phyu on the Yangon-Mandalay road, according to the spokesperson for Military Region No. 2—one of five regional commands operating under the defence ministry of the anti-junta, shadow National Unity Government (NUG).

Members of the KNLA, which operates as the armed wing of the Karen National Union (KNU), the People’s Defence Forces (PDF) commanded by the NUG, and the Bamar People’s Liberation Army (BPLA) participated in the attack. The anti-junta forces were able to take full control within an hour. 

“We managed to kill several enemy soldiers and captured weapons,” said Tin Oo. . .
