At least 20 policemen have been killed in clashes with anti-junta militants in Myanmar time in myanmar..
At least 20 policemen have been killed in clashes with anti-junta civilians along Myanmar’s eastern border on Sunday. Anti-junta fighters have made this claim. The Guardian reported this information on Monday.
The shadow of the shadow of Myanmar’s ousted lawmakers (PDF) claims that the police clashes with their fighters in a city of Shan. At least 20 policemen were killed in the clashes. They also seized a police station in the city.
Earlier this month, the shadow government announced that it had formed the People’s Defense Force (PDF). They have formed this force to protect civilians from the hands of the military junta.
According to local media reports, the police station, which was occupied by anti-junta fighters, was later set on fire. In addition, four members of the security forces were detained and taken into custody by anti-junta fighters.
Multiple videos of the incident have been posted on social media. The video showed the bodies of members of the security forces in uniform lying.
Coils of smoke were seen billowing from the burning police station and a police vehicle.
In addition, four detainees, who are said to be members of the police, are seen in different pictures. All their hands can be seen behind. And they were blindfolded with a surgical mask.
The town of Shan, about 100 kilometers east of Myanmar’s capital Nay Pyi Taw, is said to have been hit by the clashes. The area is close to some minority ethno-armed rebel-held territory. These armed rebel groups have been fighting for greater autonomy for decades.
PDF member Thet Y told news agency AFP he thought it was a victory day. But he is also worried. Because, they have seen junta airstrikes and tanks. The junta has much better weapons than them.
Myanmar’s state television did not comment on the incident. A Reuters news agency quoted a junta spokesman as saying. But it was not possible to get a statement.
Myanmar held general elections in November last year. Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), won a landslide victory in the election. Domestic and foreign observers say the election was transparent and fair. However, the country’s military has accused the election of rigging. The then Election Commission denied the allegations of the army.
Under the pretext of alleged electoral fraud, the country’s military overthrew Suu Kyi’s elected government in a coup on February 1. At the same time, it arrested civilian leaders, including Suu Kyi. Myanmar’s military has declared a state of emergency in the country.
Pro-democracy protesters in the country began protesting shortly after the military coup. More than 800 protesters have so far been killed by junta security forces in anti-military protests. Many were injured. Thousands of protesters have also been arrested.
