5. U Min Ko Naing remarks that the terrorist military junta arrives at a situation where it “loses” whenever it fights and “runs” whenever it loses

U Min Ko Naing, a prominent student leader in the 8888 uprising and a pro-democracy activist, conveyed in a Facebook post on October 27 that the terrorist military junta arrives at a situation where it “loses” whenever it fights and “runs” whenever it loses.

“In the face of the fascist military’s breakdown on all fronts—military, financial, diplomatic, and psychological—sanctions are becoming more effective. Additional substantial consequences are looming for them. They have failed to secure a UN seat, are excluded from participating in ASEAN meetings, and have resorted to deploying elderly ex-servicemen to the front lines. In a situation where they consistently “lose” whenever fighting and “run” when facing defeat, they are sweating as they realize that merely feeding puppets is no longer sufficient,” he asid.

At present, the military junta forces are losing ground in Karenni (Kayah) State, Karen State, Sagaing Region, Magway Region, Shan State, and Kachin State.

6. Junta troops and Pyu Saw Htee militia jointly-stationing camp in Ayadaw Township targeted in coordinated ground and air assault; 7 deaths reported

On October 27, at around 4:00 p.m. a military camp in Tha Le Bar village in Ayadaw Township, Sagaing, which was jointly stationed by junta troops and Pyu Saw Htee militia, was targeted in a coordinated ground and air assault by the PDF forces, as stated in a report from the No. 4 Myingyan District PDF Battalion (Natogyi People Defence Force). The attack reportedly resulted in the deaths of three junta troops and four Pyu Saw Htee members.

According to the report, the confrontation lasted for approximately two hours. The revolutionary forces withdrew without capturing the camp due to the onset of darkness and the challenges posed by navigating through the enemy’s minefields.

A revolutionary comrade confirms, “It is known that a military junta column was surrounded and came under attack.”
