Myanmar army troops opened fire on soldiers from the Democratic Karen Benevolent Army (DKBA) on Friday in the southern part of the country, continuing the hostilities that began there on July 2 and forcing the reclosure of sections of a major roadway, an ethnic military official said.

“The government army opened fire on us with heavy weapons last night and this morning,” said Brigadier General Kyaw Thet of the DKBA. “We didn’t fight them back. Their ground troops attacked us a few hours ago, and we fought them back this time. We mostly are withdrawing our troops because we don’t want people to get into trouble because of fighting,”

Although there were no reports of casualties from the latest outbreak of hostilities, stretches of the Asia Highway, which links Myanmar to Thailand via a border crossing at Myawaddy in Kayin state, were temporarily shut down again.
