Burma-Myanmar: Clashes between Kachin Independence Army (KIA) 12th battalion troops and burmese army troops


Fighting continues to rage in KIA’s 12th Battalion area despite recent talks between armed ethnic organizations and Burmese government delegation.

KIA’s 12th Battalion troops fought against about 100 Burmese army troops under Theinni-based 16th Military Operations Command (MOC-16) between Mahkaw Yang and Nam Hpu village on Nov 7.

Another battle took place between KIA’s 12th Battalion troops and a combined force of Burmese army’s 276th Light Infantry Battalion, 319th Light Infantry Regiment and 601st Light Infantry Regiment at Kawng Ja village on Nov 7 at 4 pm. The two sides have engaged in a series of battles since early Thursday morning.

KIO delegation and Union Peace-Making Work Committee on Oct 10 agreed to further de-escalate hostilities and end fighting. But fighting between KIA and Burmese army had erupted again, just a few days after Myitkyina talk as Burmese army attacked a KIA post near Man Hkawn village, located on Mansi- Je Hkam road in southern Kachin State.
