The Karen State Border Guard Force clashed Thursday with a splinter faction of the Democratic Karen Benevolent Army (DKBA) near Kaw Moo village on the old Kawkareik-Myawaddy road in Karen State.

The fighting took place at 10 am and clashes continued until 2 pm, according to Col. San Aung of the splinter group.

“There have been sporadic clashes with the BGF these past months. News of the fighting did not emerge [immediately] because it was taking place in the jungle. As the other side [BGF] is stronger than us, we are fighting guerilla warfare,” San Aung told The Irrawaddy, adding that the BGF used artillery in addition to small arms fire in the fight.
