28 soldiers killed by rebels in Myanmar

At least 26 army personnel have been killed in clashes between junta and armed groups in Myanmar, according to various media reports. However, the junta government has not yet said anything in this regard. A member of the rebel group was also reported killed in the clashes. Meanwhile, two civilians were killed in clashes between junta forces and Arakanese forces in the country’s Rakhine state.

Local time on Monday (February 8th) there were days of massive clashes between the junta forces and the shadow government’s People’s Defense Force in the Kayah state and the Sagaing region of Myanmar. Casualties occurred at this time.

According to local media reports, an armed group of the shadow government carried out a mine attack targeting the vehicles of the junta government soldiers on Monday morning. The rebels clashed with the junta forces as soon as the mine exploded. Massive shelling on both sides during the day killed members of the army and several members of the rebel forces. Several others were injured. Several civilians were also injured.

Even before this incident, on Sunday (February 8) evening, the rebel group carried out a mine attack on the vehicle of the junta forces. Several other junta members were killed at the time. The rebel group said three more mines were planted at two different locations targeting a military convoy en route to Kale town. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.

However, no statement has been received from Myanmar’s military so far on the incident in which an army member was killed in a rebel attack in two days.

Meanwhile, two civilians were killed in clashes between the junta and the Arakan Army in Rakhine State, another state of Myanmar, on Monday, local media reported. According to the locals, the sound of gunfire was heard for about 20 minutes that night. The bodies of the two were found later in the morning.

The situation in Myanmar has been volatile since February 1. Many have been killed in clashes between the two groups over the release of Suu Kyi and protests against the junta.
