Burma-Myanmar: Shan State Army-North (SSA-N) pushed back by Burmese army assault


The Shan State Army-North (SSA-N) endured a six-hour clash on Monday morning with the Burmese army in northern Shan state’s Namtu township, a spokesman for the ethnic army told DVB.

Capt Sai Phone Harn of the SSA-N information team said the group engaged in a six-hour exchange of small arms with the Tatmadaw in the early hours of 23 September in Namtu’s Mongyin village-tract which was the scene of a shorter battle one week ago.

He said the Burmese army’s Light Infantry Battalion 504, reinforced by troops previously mobilised from Lashio township, launched an assault before dawn on SSA-N forces positioned across the Namtu River prompting the rebels to return fire.

“The fighting started around 4:30 am when the government forces came across the river and launched an attack on us,” said Sai Phone Harn.
