Federal Wings, a resistance drone group in Karen State, on Monday warned all junta civil servants in Myawaddy Township to quit their jobs and leave government housing or risk being killed in drone attacks.
The group on Sunday attacked the Myawaddy District Administration Department office, killing five regime officials.
“In our revolution, we want to harm only the regime troops,” said Federal Wings. It told all other government staff and their families to leave junta offices and housing.
Myawaddy’s residents were also told to move a safe distance from government offices and military bases.
Federal Wings, which is allied with the Karen National Liberation Army, on Sunday evening targeted junta troops and police with two drones. It repeated the attacks 90 minutes later when regime officials were inspecting the damage.
The drone strikes killed Soe Tint, a junta-appointed district administrator, Lieutenant Colonel Aung Kyaw Min, commander of Light Infantry Brigade 275, two district administrative staff and a traffic policeman, according to a leaked official document.
Another 11 police officers, including a superintendent, were reportedly injured by the drones.
In response junta fighter jets on Monday bombed the regime’s former hilltop base on Mount Lat Khat Taung outside Myawaddy town, which was seized by resistance groups in July, according to media reports.
