Burma-Myanmar: Army is continuing ground offensive against Kachin Independence Army (KIA)


Burmese government forces on Wednesday continued their ground offensive against the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) near the village of Nam Sang Yawng in Kachin State while supported by two fighter jets and two helicopter gunships, said Maj. Min Htay, the information officer of the All Burma Students Democratic Front (ABSDF) Northern Branch.

“Hostilities broke out this morning [Wednesday] when the Burmese army launched an assault from the direction of Nam Sang Yawng,” he said. “The fighting started at about 8 am. Then at 11:30, the aircraft attacked. Later, two helicopter gunships came and fired on us.”

A resident in Laiza said that she could see the two fighter jets flying overhead and heard them attacking from her shelter at a refugee camp in the city.
