The Myanmar Military Raid Of Opposition Military Force Results In 25 Getting Killed

 At least 25 people were killed by Myanmar security forces in a confrontation with opponents of the military junta in a town in the nation’s center, residents and Myanmar language media reported.
The military’s spokesman did not respond to requests for comment on the violence at Depayin, which is about 300 kilometers (200 miles) north of the capital, Naypyidaw.
Myanmar’s state-run Global New Light reported that “armed terrorists” ambushed security forces patrolling there, killing one and wounding six. As a result of retaliation by the security forces, the attackers retreated.
With Aung San Suu Kyi’s Feb. 1 coup against her, Myanmar, a country of 53 million people, is engulfed in chaos.
Four military trucks dropped soldiers in Depayin early on Sunday morning, according to an anonymous Depayin resident.
Youths from a local People’s Defense Force, formed to oppose the junta, took positions to face them. According to the resident, the intruders only had makeshift weapons and were forced back by the security forces’ heavier firepower.
According to the resident, 25 bodies had been collected after the fighting.
BBC Burmese service and Than Lwin Khet News carried similar accounts.
Reuters was unable to independently verify the details.
According to a post on the Depayin People’s Defence Force’s Facebook page, 18 of its members were killed and 11 wounded.
People’s Defence Forces were founded by opponents of the junta in many parts of Myanmar, some of them in conjunction with a National Unity Government set up underground to fight the military administration.
There have been about two dozen ethnic armed groups fighting in Myanmar’s borderlands for decades, but Depayin is in the heartland of Myanmar’s Bamar majority, which also dominates the armed forces.
Since the coup, violence has driven more than 230,000 people from their homes, according to the United Nations. It also says more than 880 people have been killed by security forces since the coup, and more than 5,200 are in custody.
These figures are untrue, but the military authorities have not provided their own estimates.
The army says it assumed power in accordance with the constitution. Former electoral officials dismissed the allegations of fraud in elections swept by Suu Kyi’s party in November.
The Myanmar Military recently announced that they don’t like foreign journalists using the word junta. They want to sue them for using this word.
