Burma-Myanmar: Army and Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) rebels engage in new clashes in Rakhine State


New clashes flared between government troops and an armed ethnic group in northern Myanmar’s Shan state on Wednesday, the same day as a new civilian president was sworn into office, vowing to work towards peace and national reconciliation in the country.

Major Mai Aik Kyaw, spokesman of the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), told RFA’s Myanmar Service that his forces engaged in fresh hostilities with government troops in the early morning at Khokat village in Mantong township.

There were casualties on both sides and two villagers were wounded, but no further details were known, he said.

Nearly three hours later, a second clash occurred near Nangpar village in Kyaukme township.

“We didn’t suffer any casualties, but the Myanmar army had some wounded,” he said.
