Myanmar’s military-ruled capital was attacked by drones

The country’s beleaguered military in the nation’s capital, Nay Pyi Taw, is the target of a widespread drone strike, according to the opposition in Myanmar.

According to the National Unity Government (NUG), 29 drones carrying explosives were directed against the military headquarters, air force base, and airport.

Seven drones were shot down, according to the military, one of which exploded on the airport runway, as reported by BBC Burmese.

Officials claimed there were no casualties recorded.

The elected civilian government headed by Aung San Suu Kyi which was overthrown by a coup in 2021 is represented by the NUG.

It has since joined forces with other opposition groups to combat the junta dictatorship, which has started to lose significant portions of the nation to resistance forces. The UN estimates that the nation’s three-year civil conflict has claimed thousands of lives and forced about 2.6 million people to flee their homes.

The assault on the capital on Thursday morning represents yet another audacious and infrequent step forward by the resistance organizations putting up a stronger and stronger fight against the junta.
