Communication tower hill seized by AA terrorists in Paletwa recaptured
Nay Pyi Taw April 20
AA terrorists have been not only harassing development tasks and disrupting transportation routes but also abducting and killing local residents and civil servants by force in Paletwa area of Chin State. In doing so, AA terrorists have taken dominant position over Kyauktaw-Paletwa road and Hsamee-Paletwa road about 6,000 metres southeast of Paletwa and seized a hill on which a communication tower of Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications had been erected, disrupting transportation routes to Patetwa from other areas by taking positions in trenches and bunkers.
Therefore, Tatmadaw columns launched a step-by-step offensive to recapture the hill occupied by AA terrorists on 14 April, forcing them to retreat after destroying the tower and communication equipment being used by the public as they could not resist the offensive of the Tatmadaw on 15 April. Necessary security measures are being taken to repair and reinstall communication equipment de-stroyed by AA terrorists as soon as possible.
