90 people killed in clashes between pro-democracy activists and the junta in Myanmar

Democrats have reportedly clashed with junta forces in Myanmar. According to international media, at least 90 members of the army have  killed  resistance fighters in the last five days of clashes.

Four fighters were killed in the clash.

The country’s Irabati media reported the casualties on Sunday (June 19th), citing several local resistance groups.

  • Myanmar’s military is facing stiff resistance from several local armed groups in different parts of the country.
  • The Myanmar-based news agency Irabati reports that the army  engaged in fierce fighting with anti-people forces People’s Defense Forces (PDF) in the Sagaing and Magway areas in the past few days.

The bomber struck very quickly after noon in front of a U.S. military base near the village of Mainmoor in the Sagaing region.

This led to massive casualties.

Elsewhere, the PGC claimed that 20 soldiers had  killed in an attack on a military convoy.

These attacks were carried out using mines.

Earlier, on the morning of June 15, seven soldiers were killed in a PDF ambush on the Maniwa-Ayrdau highway.

“We are fighting for our lives, against military rule and for our people,” said PDF fighter Ko Daung Haman.

On February 1 last year, the military overthrew the Suu Kyi government and seized power.

The country’s leader, Aung San Suu Kyi,  placed under house arrest.

Millions of civilians took to the streets to protest. The junta government resisted them with strong hands.

Thousands of people lost their lives in the ongoing movement.

Shortly afterwards, an armed movement began against the army. Smaller armed groups continue to fight the army.


Earlier, in a three-day operation, Myanmar’s junta burned down hundreds of homes in the northern part of the country. Local media and villagers  demanded this.
