At least 3 junta’s troops killed and injured one in bomb attacks on 26 October in Hmawbi, Yangon.
The bomb attacks killed at least 3 junta’s troops and injured one in Hmawbi, according to a statement released by the Anti-Coup and People’s Liberation Front (ACPLF) on 26 October.
The ACPLF claimed responsibility for launching bomb attacks targeting the junta’s troops at two locations in Hmawbi, Yangon on 26 October.
We launched the first attack at 6:30 am near a signpost showing the entrance to Hmawbi from Taikgyi, and a subsequent second attack at 7:30 pm on Pyi Road near the old cinema, according to ACPLF.
A poster that said “Hmawbi is our land, not owned by the military, no one should rule over the land” was hung in a quiet neighborhood to lure the junta’s troops to come and take it down. The troops came to take down the poster as planned and we launched the attack, the statement said.
“In the first attack, we missed the target. However, our second attack killed at least 3 junta’s troops and injured one,” the statement added.
The bombing attacks were carried out by joint forces of the ACPLF, the Hmawbi Youth Army, and the Hmawbi Township People’s Defense Force (Hmawbi).
