Insurgents stormed Ywa Soe village in Shwebo Township, Sagaing Division and set it on fire. Harvesters stored inside the house were also destroyed. These are the famous Shwebo rice sprouts around the area. Now the village is being set on fire and the machines are being destroyed during the rice harvest, leaving the locals in a difficult situation. In some villages, they even have to pay 200,000 kyat per acre to the rebels to harvest paddy from their fields. It is an army that is causing all kinds of troubles to the people.
Some PDF camps in Sagaing Division also collapsed this month due to the military offensive. In some camps, PDF comrades were not killed and only supplies were lost. Some camps were hit by people and property. As the revolution dragged on, we suffered casualties.
