Exchange of Fire between PDF Terrorist Rival Groups Occurs in Dabayin Township

On 28 May, two PDF members from Shwebo District of Sagaing Region visited their parents in Tetaw Village, Dabayin Township. An altercation ensued between them and other local PDF members from Dabayin Township, escalating into gunfire. The exchange of fire resulted in the deaths of one PDF member and four family members, totaling five. One other PDF member was injured and managed to escape.

The escaped PDF member reportedly contacted their leader, who subsequently arrived at Tetaw Village for investigation. This sparked a further firefight between the local Dabayin PDF and the incoming PDF group, leading to three additional fatalities.

Armed PDF terrorists are carrying out acts of terrorism such as bullying civilians, extortion, torture, and killings of those who do not support them. Moreover, internal conflict within the PDF is also reported, with disputes arising over control of land and territory, power struggles, misuse of extortion funds, and harassment leading to further violence and extrajudicial killings.
