‘We Need Guns,’ Myanmar Resistance Forces Tell Shadow Govt |IRRAWADDY

Must Read

Some rebel organizations in Myanmar’s Sagaing and Magwe areas are requesting weapons and cash from the government. For some opposition organizations on the ground, the necessity for guns and other assistance has become an urgent matter. Groups within the People’s Defense Force report battling inadequate guns and other logistical challenges.

In contrast to their colleagues in the country’s north and south, it is tough for these fighters to sneak in the necessary weaponry. The Khin-U People’s Defense Force and affiliated factions have murdered nearly 150 troops in the last year.

They depend primarily on guerilla warfare and homemade land mines to assault government forces. It is becoming more difficult for the PDF to solicit material assistance from the devastated civilian population. The NUG commands between 80,000 and 100,000 PDF soldiers and spends 80 percent of its budget on their support: Other resistance organizations have taken responsibility for their finance by independently soliciting cash.
