At least five Myanmar junta soldiers were reportedly killed in an ambush by a combined force of resistance groups in southern Myanmar’s Taninthari region last Wednesday.

The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a local military security office, known as the Military Intelligence Office. The office was set on fire, according to the Daui Guerrilla Revolutionary Force (DGRF).

Troops from the regime and pro-junta Pyu Saw Htee militias are stationed in the office, but the DGRF could not confirm the number of casualties under the military rule.

To strengthen the office, three military vehicles carrying about 40 soldiers were subsequently attacked by mines by the Langlon People’s Defense Force (PDF) and three other resistance groups near the Yabu Bridge.

Five soldiers were killed and many more were injured on the spot.

“The three vehicles came from the western part of Yabiu Town to help the military security office. However, after our mine attack, two were stopped and one came back, ”said a Langlon PDF spokesman.

The resistance forces urged the crowd to avoid police stations and military offices as they would continue to attack the junta troops.

“We want to urge the public to stay away from the soldiers, the police and their stewards, Pyu Saw Htee. Moreover, public military and police vehicles should not be followed closely, ”Langlon added to the PDF.

The Taninthari region is a stronghold of armed resistance in southern Myanmar. There have been frequent clashes between resistance fighters and junta troops in the towns of Langlon, Thaetchang and Yiwu in Dawei District.
