Burma-Myanmar: Fighting between RCSS/SSA-S and TNLA/PSLF rebels in northern Shan State


Clashes between the Ta’ang National Liberation Army/Palaung State Liberation Front (TNLA/PSLF) and the Restoration Council of Shan State/Shan State Army-South (RCSS/SSA-S) continued this morning as both sides accused one another of trespassing into the other’s territory.

Fighting between the two armed groups first broke out last year on November 27, just over one month after the signing of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) on October 15 between the government and eight of the country’s more than 20 ethnic armed groups. RCSS/SSA-S was among the signatories, but the TNLA was excluded by the government from signing.

“There was another episode of fighting which occurred this morning,” said Sai Hseng Murng, the spokesperson for RCSS/SSA-S. “Until now the fighting has not stopped.”

He claimed that the TNLA troops had attacked them and were advancing further into area controlled by RCSS/SSA-S every day.
