The SAC soldiers are firing their weapons from Nyaung Wine village into where people are living, and the residents are now packing so that they can flee from the area whenever needed.

“Some are now preparing to flee. No one is leaving from the area yet for now. The bullets are coming from everywhere. People Defense Force (PDF) is trying its best to inform the locals to relocate to a safe place,” the above resident added.

“It’s confirmed that clashes occurred. The gun fight is still ongoing on the ground, it is not convenient to make a detail report at this time. One thing I would like to tell the residents is that please try to move to a safe place as of now,” one local PDF member told SHAN.
