Burma-Myanmar: 7 Burma Army soldiers killed in fighting with Kachin Independence Army (KIA) troops at Lungja hillside

At least seven Burma Army soldiers were killed and more than three injured during two days of heavy fighting with Kachin Independence Army (KIA) troops at Lungja Bum Kadawng (Lungja hillside) in N’Mawk (Momauk) Township in Manmaw (Bhamo) Township, in Burma’s Northern Kachin State, on August 28 and 29, local sources said.

It was biggest loss of Burmese troops in fighting with the KIA in Kachin State earlier this week, KIA officials at the Laiza headquarters in eastern Kachin State said.

The fighting happened between over 200 government troops, combined with local battalions and the Sagaing-based Light Infantry Division No. 33 and KIA troops under Battalion 15, according to KIA battalion officials.

No report on KIA casualties has been released.
