Pakokku guerrilla comrades have to work as rent-an-peanut-diggers in villages in the controlled area due to lack of fund to buy ammunition

“Pakokku guerrilla comrades have to work as rent-an-peanut-diggers in villages in the controlled area for troop funding and ammunition expenses,” Pakokku guerrilla comrades said on May 16. They also said “Expenditure requirements such as daily expenses of comrades, mission costs, expenses of ammunition, supplementation for inadequate weapons, expenses of clothing, daily expenses for phone bills, medical expenses are constantly rising.”

Pakokku guerrilla comrades also carried out operations that severely injured the military council troops.

In Yinmabin region, local people have no place to flee since the military council was burning down the villages one after another

On May 14, at around 6 pm, Ywar Tharyar village in Yinmabin Township was set on fire by military council troops, destroying at least 13 houses.

A villager said there was no place to flee due to the artillery shelling and gun-firing by soldiers.

At the beginning of the violence, other villages were able to help the villages that were set on fire by the junta, but since almost all of the villages have been affected by the violence, it is no longer possible to help each other, according to a PDF member from the local Bo Thurein squad.

Since Pearl Township and Yinmabin Township in Sagaing Division are important for transportation to Chin State and Magway Division, the military council is trying to control the area by force. Myaung and Kani townships are important areas for the Chindwin River waterway, so the military council is trying to control them by any means.
