Burma-Myanmar: New Burmese military operations against Shan State Army-North (SSA-North) rebels

More than 1,000 ethnic Shan villagers from Tangyan Township, Shan State, have fled from their homes due to atrocities by Burmese government forces, a human rights group said on Friday.

The Shan Human Rights Foundation said the influx of residents from 16 villages in the eastern state began two weeks ago due to the government army’s new operation against the Shan State Army-North (SSA-North), an ethnic Shan militia that signed a ceasefire agreement with the government in January 2012.

The government army began deploying forces to the region after asking the SSA-North to withdraw from military bases at two strategic mountains. The Shan rebels refused.
