Since yesterday morning, a large number of villagers have arrived in Pale town. Some with bags, some with small bags, some with clothes. Motorcycles and trucks do not carry much. The city is full of refugees, as they plan to stay close by. It is not really safe in Pearl City either. There are all kinds of bad news from the military.
In the evening, gunfire and artillery shelling erupted in the city. Fighting broke out in the city. Residents may not know what to do and can only hide in their homes. About ten o’clock at night, the fire started burning in the south of the city. As the gunfire subsided, people took to the streets. The army was stationed in the city, firing on all the people on the streets. But as the fighting continued for a while, people fled to nearby villages overnight. If they stayed in the city, they would all be killed by the army’s heavy artillery.
In the morning, PDFs were reportedly attacked at a police station in the town. In the morning, many people in Pearl City fled to Monywa and Mandalay in small and large packages. Some are still trapped in the villages, some in the cities. No one can guarantee what will happen next. The town, which had been stable and peaceful before the military coup, was in disrepair overnight.
