The M23 group has stripped the FARDC of a large number of weapons including rifles and ammunition as well as armored vehicles, following a rare firefight between the two sides in the ongoing conflict.

120 soldiers and rebels were also killed by M23 fighters, and their corpses were exposed.

After talking to the soldiers and fighters, M23 showed off the equipment they had seized, which included several types of assault rifles, including AK45s and heavy machine guns.
